A both good and bad day today--
Bad: I stepped on the scale. I saw a number I didn't want to see. It made me feel less good about the good, good work I've been doing. Seriously, why did I feel compelled to get on, to get the "validation" of the scale when how healthy I was feeling, how healthy I knew I was eating, how good I felt about the choices I was making was really all the validation I needed? Anyway, the advice I give to other people is to STAY OFF the scale unless you really feel like you're doing something "wrong" and need to check in to see if your plan is still working. I knew my plan was still working though... and was feeling great. The only thing the scale managed to do was undermine how good I was feeling! How senseless!
Good: I stepped up the exercise today, finally! I feel really good, fresh, healthy. I'm also feeling pleasantly settled in--doing well focusing on the present, not feeling overwhelmed by all that's ahead, not worried so much about "what happens if..." If it weren't for this sore throat, I could count this as an amazing day! :)
Tonight, an early bedtime, some quiet time to read and/or meditate, maybe a game...
