Another Week, Another Pound

Sunday, July 13, 2014

It's been a very strange week and I've been fighting something respiratory. As a result, there have been a couple of missed meals which has resulted in being extra hungry the last two days. It's been discouraging to feel that hungry again, but it's encouraging to know that I didn't go completely overboard. Little wins.

Today's scale day. Lost 0.8 pounds, which is better than gaining. Am I happy with it? Not really, but I'm trying to be at peace instead of beat myself up about it. I ate a solid breakfast this morning of two eggs, two Morningstar farms breakfast patties, and two pieces of Ezekial 4:9 toast with butter and jam. And coffee, I'll be heading back for my second cup shortly. Enough energy to get me up and going after a very long day at work yesterday.

I have much to accomplish today. Laundry, steam cleaning carpets, yardwork, cleaning my kitchen, cleaning my car. I'm already tired! However, it does need to get done and since my weekend was cut short by having to work for the 6th day of the week yesterday, I have no choice. Right now, however, I'm sitting in my living room with all the windows open listening to the planes fly over and the birds chirp. I don't think I've had my windows open all summer; it's been too hot. This morning? 65 degree with a light breeze, blue sky and full sun. Perfect.

Outside of that, I'm back in school again and on the countdown. 4 classes, writing my literature review and done. Done done and done! I'm ready.

I'm a couple days out from it being about one month of feeling more like myself and less hungry (overall). Though I didn't weigh myself when I started again (because quite frankly, I didn't expect anything to change), I am down 10 pounds from the beginning of June. That I'm proud of.

Here's to another good week, with hopefully another downward movement.

    Hey, Paula, that 0.8 pound is GREAT!! If that's what you lose every week, in a year's time you'll be over 40 pounds lighter. They DO add up, although it seems to go faster on the gaining side... emoticon

    Congratulations on the 10 pound loss. Just keep it up and by New Year's there will be a new you!!

    By the way, today sounds like you will be doing a week's worth of cardio. Just the carpets alone should take care of it...
