So Life

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

It's a funky little thing. Been a bit down the past few days, not really feeling like working out or trying to eat right. It just feels that no matter how much I try all I do is gain. My mother is being really supportive though, but (and this will sound odd) I don't do well with positive reinforcement from family. The way I motivate myself is to tell myself about a thousand bad things a day. Not exactly good for mental health, hence several of my wonderful Spark Groups are about being positive. But it's so hard when even when I try all I see is the scale going up and up. It just feels like I gain the weight everyone else loses. OK, did not mean to be all down in this article. I did take Lucy for her walk this morning and did my workout today (30 mins recumbent bike and 30 mins Biggest Loser Bootcamp with 5lbs weights). I've got my nerdy Wednesday too so that's all good. So yes, I'm still trying, it'll be OK. *hugs to all*

    *hugs* Are you also taking your measurements? Though I'm sure it sounds cliche, muscle DOES weigh more than fat, and I've been told over and over again that the scale is a dirty whore. Are you FEELING better? Are your clothes FITTING better?

    I'm sorry you're not seeing the numbers you want to be seeing. It's very frustrating, I know. We've both just got to stick with it!!

    Are you going to Anime Detour this year??
