IDEA - Day 19-20: Trying to keep a positive outlook

Monday, July 09, 2012

Well, it's been a challenging last couple of days. I don't understand how one 'off' day from my 1200 calories can make two pounds magically turn back up. I'm hoping tomorrow I get on the scale and things are back where they were on Saturday.

Things that went wrong this weekend:

1. I threw away my iPhone (Which I use as an iPod). Completely stupidly and accidentally
2. My dog ran away (to be caught by my brother, thank god)
3. Two pounds.
4. No mangoes
5. Angry ankle after run.

Today I went for my run and my calves as currently a bit sore, but not terribly so. Tomorrow I'm bringing my bike into work so I can bike to the Fat Kids club. I have a feeling I may get there faster than when I take the bus...

I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, I really am. Today I saw a woman who couldn't get on or off the bus without it 'kneeling' - when she got off she was in such bad shape she just sat on the curb panting. I felt so terrible for her. At the same time I have to be thankful that in spite of being overweight I'm not in pain or kept from running, biking, or walking. I'm thankful to be doing something about this before it's too late.

    Awesome idea! I like that, I always try to be more positive, be more carefree and less worrying things that I don't even have in control of :D
