The green eyed monster

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Boy, have I had a hard time lately! I know I should never compare myself to another. My journey, my way. But, I have found myself lately comparing my activity to another friends. I am more consistent. I don't skip days and then binge the next to make up for it. I should have more activity recorded! I should be at the top of the boards! Sigh.... My friend runs...5ks, half marathons... Quite a few now. And I cheer on every new pic of them finishing and holding their shinny new bling! I haven't been able to even try running since July. I have periformis syndrome and was down for a whole month. I know I'm doing great now. I know my average of 5 miles a day is awesome. I still can't shake my constant checking to see if I beat my buddy today. So, now I have taken to looking at what I have done. How many stairs did I do, steps taken, miles walked... Did I keep to my diet and not let this jealousy be an excuse to cheat and give up on myself? I can only push me to be better and to do what's right for me. So, here's my confession. And for penance, I think I shall write my buddy a message of how I have been pushed by their continued commitment to their health...and how I has helped me tighten up my game.

    Thanks Onlytemporary. That's why I acknowledged it so I can keep on just as strongly with my 100+ pound weight loss journey.

    MerryMary42, that's why I put away my scale for a while. I was getting on it way too many times a day! I think to make my daily walks a bit more fun, I'll stop and take a photo or two of the season changing out here in CA. So, I can, stop and smell the roses so to speak :)
