Last night was a no nosh night, still on track to meet my goal! But the scale is still up... even though I feel like me eating is controlled and in line with my needs, and my activity is high, but I do have a pretty good DOMS today from Tuesday's bootie-fest at the gym! So maybe that's the culprit?
Today is Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving to any Sparkers that happen across this blog!
Today I'm thankful for family to celebrate the day with, we'll be headed to my dad's later today, pie in hand to enjoy the company of family and eat some turkey!
It is not easy to stick to healthy plans through holidays, so good work! I try not to put too much stock in the number on the scale, because often when I am not exercising as well as I'd like, I actually lose a pound or two. Since that obviously isn't good weight loss, I try not to get discouraged if I feel I am doing things right but the scale nudges up. Similar to good fats and bad fats, I guess there is good weight (muscle tone) and bad weight (flab)? What I mean is, don't feel discouraged. Keep doing what's right and what makes you feel good, and eventually the scale will follow.
I, also, have much to be thankful for. I am thankful for all my comforts in life. I am comfortable with my health and fitness,able to do so much that many can't. I am comfortable financially, not that we are rich but we do not worry about getting groceries on the table or keeping the roof over our heads. And, most important to me, I am comfortable with my family relationships--married for 26 years and still feel that strong bond, with two nearly grown sons who are wonderful people that I am so proud of. A very nice life I have :-)
