6 July 2013, End of Week 4

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Well, this week has been a bust with only 3 workouts. A lot of eating, and a low energy level. I think that I have lost a little of the wind in my sails but I am not getting down on myself. That is black and white thinking and that is a tough place to try to live, you are either good or bad, no in between. So, the first bit of compassion is going to me. I have worked hard this past month, it doesn't reflect on the scale but I have lost over 10 inches! Six of them around my midsection! I have noticed a huge improvement in my range of mobility, I'm able to twist to reach stuff, when I have to pick something up, I bend my knees and use my muscles to get back up, I'm down two sizes in my pants and all my other pants are fitting loosely - no muffin top or little muffin top. This versus the 2-3 inches falling out of my pants is quite an improvement. So, while I did not work out as much as I wanted to this week, I will make up for it this week. Back on the light eating, more water, and continue my pop ban! 30 days without a coke, who would have thunk? My downfall was my wine and dining. Love to do that. I've upped the ante and will let go of my wine and deal with my depression in other ways - meditation, counselling, and massage. I felt that the depression was coming back and with the loss of a very, sweet, family member on Wednesday, the depression in now layered with yet another death to process. However, my heart is with this family, who have now lost 3 out of 4 of their children. I know how hard it is to have lost 1, my Angel, Jordan, but to lose 3? I cannot even comprehend the pain they must be feeling. So, I go into this week determined to continue this journey, get healthier, physically and mentally, and be thankful for the world around me. Including my family. Focusing on the positive, acknowledging the negative, knowing that I am safe here. Love and Light....JWIL14 (heart)
