Taking a short break.

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I was gently chided by a friend yesterday for my absence without leave from Spark. All is well. I tweaked my good knee and it is has been lingering. And I have been feeling just sort of blah on the weight loss efforts. I think the yo-yo of gaining on a trip then re-losing the weight only to do it again finally caught up to me. So, I was sort of taking a week off. Still eating healthy overall but trying to distress about it all. I think I was starting to push it all too hard and the body was rebelling.

Which then makes the mind rebel. Even with the cruise I was stressing about my fitness minutes and what I could do to get more. It is not that the fitness isn’t important to me. It most certainly is. And I fully plan to get back to the gym this Sunday.

Between now and Sunday though, I am sooo looking forward to the start of college football season and what will hopefully be an exciting year for my University of Cincinnati Bearcats! New coach, new league, and new season. I love the start of any sports season. You never know what you will get. A great team on paper isn’t always the best on the field and sometimes you see the players gel and what you thought would be a horrible team comes together and plays like a team. I like sports more from the team aspect. I do enjoy seeing stars, but not so much as seeing a group of players come together to realize that a team of average players can accomplish so much if they work together. Even better if the star has the quality of making his team better.

But I did make a mistake and Really_Robin made that clear, thanks!. I maybe should have asked for advice. Since she gave me some good advice on a supplement to try. So, I will be getting that tonight and see if that helps with the knee. But I am sticking to the break idea. So, hopefully I didn’t worry anyone and apologize if I did! I have been on here to read the articles, especially the motivation ones. I haven’t been tracking, but have been mindful of my eating. I think it has just consumed me for the last 6 months and I needed to step back and take a breath.

I plan to come back on Sunday and start the week off right. I will be mindful till Saturday then enjoy the football kickoff with a friend and spend a lot of the day watching games. Then back to work on Sunday.
