Two more gone!
Monday, January 23, 2012
Great news - I was down 2 more pounds this week!!! It's so nice to see the progress.
Today was kind of a roller coaster ride. There were periods where I had energy to get the walking in, then there were periods of hunger - then feeling as if there was nothing left in the way of energy and still had to do strength training. Somehow I pushed hard and got the strength training in - which I'm SO glad I did. Got a lot of steps in today, 14,467 - no, I don't know how I did it! Had some strong food cravings just after lunch, but I waited, rode it out and got through it OK.
So, today was a success - but it didn't come easy. Some of these days it all seems easy, but there are a few, like today, which are hard won. But, even so, it's all worth it.
Energy isn't high right now, so I'll close to get a good night's sleep and then maybe tomorrow will be a little easier.
I'm thankful today that I was able to work through the hard parts and finish the day knowing I stayed on track. I'm thankful for the loss of 2 pounds too! And, I'm thankful for you SparkPeople to help me record this personal challenge.
Hope anyone reading this had a super day!! So long, until tomorrow.
