Darn Those Diet Downers!!

Thursday, May 02, 2013

16 pounds down and I feel great.
Its amazing how I see this as a journey and as lifestyle change. I literally picture myself on a mountain climbing my way up and out from where I was. I know that it will take a while and that I wont always meet my goals when I want to, but I KNOW I will meet them.

April has been an amazing month for me. I have been so focused on treating myself better both with giving my body the good food it needs and the exercise it needs.
In Ayurveda (Eastern medicine)- I am what you call a "Kapha" body type. One characteristic of a Kapha is that they are lazy and likely to be found on a couch, but if they can get their butts up and exercise, they love it and thrive off it.
I am there! I am thriving on this energy, on this feeling of pride that I got myself up.

My wifey has a conference next month and we will be staying at this resort and while she is sitting in boring workshops- I got so excited to think of all the fitness activities I will get to do. But... anyway Me ... wanting to exercise while on vacation?? I am still not used to this way of thinking, but it is refreshing.

Back to why I started writing today. I shared with my co-workers that I dropped another pound today and I was so proud but instead of sharing my joy with me... they seemed angry at me. The weight loss was fine before, but now it seems like I am losing too much (or rather losing more efficiently than they are) and they are not okay with it.

What a bubble burst.
but I have you Sparkers. and thank you! reading all your blogs, and hearing your struggles and successes- you all keep me fresh and motivated!

Happy Week everyone :)

    Congratulations on your weight loss! It's a bummer that your coworkers can't be better cheerleaders for you, but we all respond to things differently, I guess.

    I think Ayerveda is fascinating. Do you practice yoga at all? The place where I practice has "five elements" classes that are intended to help balance your dosha. It's pretty neat.

    It's funny how other people's insecurities manifest ... but at least you recognize that their lack of enthusiasm is all about THEM and not about anything you're doing. You're doing great! Congrats on the extra pound!!
