Ho Hum...

I'm feeling a bit down today. Maybe it's because I was home with my sick daughter all day yesterday with no real movement except for our trek to the doctor's office and the pharmacy. I spent the day laying around with her, napping with her and bribing her to take her medicine. Or maybe it's because I made the effort to make a nutritious and delicious meal for the family, even though I wasn't really feeling it, and everyone just ate it and shrugged, leaving all the dishes for me to clean up. It could also be the fact that the number on the scale hasn't moved in a few weeks. That's a little frustrating in itself. *sigh* I don't know..., but I feel like a slug.

    No sluggin' here! For Lent I am doing an exercise video a day and/or one or two exercise classes. My tummy is getting flatter though, so I guess there is a payoff. I thought at my age and after 2 kids it was just a part of me. I'm looking pretty good in a profile now though! I guess we all have swings in results and non results. I'm up and you're down. Next week it may reverse. Hang in there!

    emoticon No slug emoticon, but there is this little inchworm. At least we're both doing better with exercise, and healthy cooking still counts! Even if no one else notices :( But... It still counts! So there! Good job! (WAY TO GO EMOTICON) -- now the darn thing won't load! Grrr!!!

    My internet won't work half the time, and guess what... I started Day 1 of the Spark Bootcamp -- and freakin' hurt my back! I've been doing a teeny bit of exercise every day since then, but my back is still killing me. The pizza last night helped, though :(

    oooppsss... got off track with trying to be motivational...

    At least Spring is coming soon, right? Things will get better! Just hang in there :) And smack something if you don't have a pinata! lol

    In those down times, it helps me to remember that low energy periods are all part of the bigger picture. I'm not sure where you live, but for me, just looking outside this time of year gives me a good reminder--the trees are bare, still, the grass isn't growing, animals are hibernating, birds aren't around. It is the natural way of things to have periods of rest and low energy; we don't always get to choose when they'll happen.

    It's all part of the process, what you've written about above. If you can--or where you can--see if you can surrender to it a little bit and see how you feel.

    Have faith: brighter days will come!

    Boy, that slug comment sure sums it up sometimes! I hope your daughter is better soon and you feel better getting back out among the living and moving. I can so relate as I am stuck inside right now with my disability...but I try to keep my goal in sight to change it!
    Good for you for making a healthy meal! Do you have the new cookbook? I can't even cook right now but have book, love it, and again I plan for my future!
    I, too have been on a plateau all this month emoticon But I am not giving up...just trying to PLOW through...
    Hang in there!
