Remember, I am not a Number on a Scale
Thursday, November 08, 2018
Ok. I have been sick since last Friday, and this is the first day back at work. And I weighed yesterday at the doctor's office, and I've regained 5#. That doesn't sound like a lot, but I am obsessing over it, big time.
I know part of it is I feel awful and am still congested and my head is stuffy and all the usual yuck, and that contributes to how I think and feel about my health. I have been managing to still hit a minimum of 10K steps a day, but my diet hasn't been wonderful the last couple weeks either, so I have to be more attentive to that.
BUT. At the same time, I need to be nice to myself about it. I am still walking an average of 10K-15K every single day of the week, and it makes me happy to do it. I am still doing strength training exercises, though I need to be more diligent about that. I AM NOT JUST A NUMBER ON THE SCALE. I am a person who is working to be healthier, and I am succeeding at that, one step at a time. I don't have a deadline, this is just for today, living healthier.
STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP DEEANN!!! You are wonderful as you are, you can still do this.
