The Small Things that Motivate Us

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

To those who've endured my whining (I'm sorry) and those that are new, this is an FYI, I've been on a plateau since July. Yes some of it became self induced during the holidays when I lost some control of my exercise, let a major depressive episode derail me and drank WAY too much beer during the ACLS conference series and World Series.. lol.. at least the Rangers were there. Okay off that tangent.

Anyway - small victory, the scale is moving in small increments downward.
Small victory - I'm wearing a tucked in shirt today and don't have muffin top
Small victory - my stomach feels flatter
Small victory - You'll love this one - I was sitting down, kind of rubbed the old butt and it felt... LESS DIMPLY. Bwahahahah.. maybe my strength training is working finally.

Anyway, those little small victories are helping at least my weight management attitude. We're struggling to get in the gym because of the weather, but at least trying to get there. Hubby is coming off a three week illness and is feeling way out of shape and of course I'm the taskmaster beating him into submission. Guess I should be a LITTLE nicer in the gym. Anyway, feeling strong. The strength training weights are slowly going up. Finally geting the hang of our new schedule where we work out after work. I'm not sure the puppy loves it so much. His poor little bladder.

Anyway, that's all I got. Have a GREAT day. WATER people, drink your water. More water does NOT CAUSE water retention, it promotes healthy skin, healthy organs and general cleansing. emoticon

Okay now that's all I got. emoticon

    It's the small little realizations that keep you going isn't it? I keep looking at my "not so sad face" belly button...it gets a little less frowny every week...so even if the scale doesn't move, at least the belly button isn't so sad. LOL :)

    Great job on the small victories. You say they are small. I am not so sure of that. They would be big ones if it was me.
