On Friday I wrote about my wake up call from a prolonged denial. Today I had my first official weigh-in in four months and WOW was it rather shocking to see in the graph tracking my weight the line increase 10 pounds over that time!
I have my plan to spark, be mindful, stay active, and sleep well. It will work out and I will work through these 10 pounds (plus the other 5 I was originally aiming for) and in doing so, more than cementing healthy habits (and I feel mine are alright... obviously could still improve!) I want to really be alright with my body wherever it is. Add meditation to my plan.
I didn't track over the weekend since I was with by boyfriend and when I tracked this morning I was happily reassured that my mindful eating is alright. Not perfect... but I did fine. Saturday we went to a farmer's market and wandered a fun area of the city and at night we went to a club and I actually got him up dancing for a while! Sunday he had a performance at this park on the water in the city that I haven't been to in about a year but keep wanting to return to, he was watching all these people on their bikes so we decided we'll return next weekend with our bikes and a picnic basket. It was a really positive weekend!
Today I began my week with yoga and the first day of my self-prescribed 10-day yoga challenge. I feel like I was a bit too indulgent with my lunch but I have the rest of the day to keep myself on track. For now, though, I should get to some vacuuming before doing some more job searching and heading out to meet some friends for an early/late night drink. I'll be in bed around 11!
Have a lovely Monday, Sparkfriends!
