This past weekend was really great! I loved seeing my daughter getting ready for her Homecoming, and the amount of parents coming up and complimenting her on her organizing the group homecoming date was very nice! Watching her with the group, she really is a leader. I guess I will have to stop telling her when she argues with me that she will make a good lawyer someday. To when she's driving me crazy with her level of organization....hmmm....I guess you will make an awesome Project Manager like your Mom! Maybe that's where the arguments come in....we are too much alike! :)
There definitely was a reality check this weekend, when I saw the pictures. Hers were gorgeous...I added a couple on my page. And mine....well I'm almost back to where I started. Nine pounds to be exact, from where I started. While I'm frustrated with that, I also did really good over the weekend. I actually lost a pound and my TOM started today, so that was a miracle.
For me and my weight loss journey...I think I can some it up in one statement....I put way too much pressure on myself. So much so, that from the stress of it...I overeat. I over exercise and hurt myself. And get myself tired enough that I get sick more often than most.
So over the weekend, I told Reggie, I'm just not going to stress about it anymore. I'm going to do what I can exercise wise, and I'm going to eat as healthy as I can and see where it goes. And I'm totally back to baby steps.
I do think I'm interested in starting a Spark Streak...20 minutes of day of exercise. That does not mean when I feel my body is saying rest that I won't because of the streak. I will just do something light weight like stretching. I just need to get back to healthy habits and doing them everyday.
And wow, can you believe November is almost here???? Crazy!
