I'm feeling really discouraged today. All week I have been sick, and have not done hardcore exercise - I've done 20-30 minutes of pilates, weights, or walking. But I have noticed that to keep from getting depressed, I really need a good hour.
I went to the doctor today, actually because of a sparkpeople post somewhere - suggesting to "take care of all those little aches and pains" - and the doctor was SO rude. One of the things that happened was -- I asked her about a muscle/nerve issue I get, and she said "when you are overweight, that can get triggered." then said nothing to me about nutrition, exercise, or anything - but listed "obesity" on my chart. I thought that was so unprofessional. I had been feeling so proud of the THIRTY pounds I have lost, but then that made me only look at how far I still have to go.
So... knowing intellectually that accomplishing these daily goals is what will make me happier in the long run.. I can now check "journal or blog" off my daily list.
