I'm getting giddy from all my ups and downs. Straight into it--- this week I'm down 0.4 kgs so I'm back to 73.8 kgs (162.36 lbs).
My neck and back have been giving me 'gip' (ooo that's an old saying-I feel old this week :) ), I have been really giving the new Zumba dvd's a work out and have been suffering for it. So yesterday I did a couple of hours and then some walking to realign everything.
I found I miss walking, I lost a lot of weight just walking and moved to zumba to up the intensity. I might add back some walking especially if it helps with the soreness.
Have you found that sometimes the losing just takes over all other thoughts and you feel low when you don't have that loss you were working on. my goal of 2kgs per month has ' gone out the window.'
I had a light bulb moment on Thursday--- I had lost some of the fun of working out. It had become a chore instead of a delight. So instead of getting depressed I looked back at the year and also at my Sparkpage where I updated the monthly losses to see at a glance and was nicely surprised that "it wasn't so bad".
So this week I encourage you to look back , take a rest if the journey is becoming a chore and enjoy each day. If you are breathing there are a myriad of possibilites in each day.
PS The peacocks are back but the white one has gone... :( ... the majestic male and the brown female are adding 'some class to the block" !!!! :)
