Finding the Energy
Monday, April 01, 2013
It's a new day, a new week, a new month ~ call it what you will. For me, it's a day I got out of bed without adjusting the alarm, which is a minor miracle.
I've been in a slump lately. I just checked my treadmill journal and March 9th is the last entry. There's been some dancing in there, and some days with over 10,000 steps on the Fitbit, but overall I've been a slug for no good reason for the past 3 weeks.
Today is the day to turn that around.
I've already done twelve and a half minutes of 'dancing' (walking in place, side steps, knee lifts, kicks). I'm about to clear out the accumulated stuff under the treadmill deck so I can get on it after work today.
There are some non-scale successes going on. I wore a shirt the other day that I'd never been able to comfortably button since I bought it. No problem. I put on 3 different pairs of XL shorts I bought 2 summers ago that were skin tight with the idea that they'd be fine soon... One pair slid right to the floor.
So the question is, with these successes, why the slump? No idea, but I have to get over it. I've lost 46 lbs, but have been stuck at my current weight for months. Time to watch more clothes slide off my body and reach my goals!
Happy April! Happy spring!
