I've been annoyed about my weight...I hit a 16-lb loss just before xmas, then I relaxed over the holidays and gained 5 or 6 lbs and have been trying to lose it ever since. I was finally almost there, but then the past few weeks, I've been socializing a lot again, and I've gained a couple. I've been beating myself up a lot about that weight gain, despite the fact that I've been getting a lot of compliments lately about how good I look. Which made me think...I'm still, as of Saturday, around a 13 lb loss, which is nothing to sneeze at. Yes, I'd like to be lower, but I have lost 13 lbs and I should compliment myself for that, not beat myself up.
But I am gonna keep plugging, and hopefully hit that elusive 20-lb mark at some point!
So I'm going to try to focus on the positive - focus on the weight I HAVE lost, and the weight I'm going to lose, rather than the weight I HAVEN'T lost, or the weight I've gained. Because focusing on the negative, although it's in a lot of ways easier, is just not real productive.
It's been SUPER windy here, so I skipped the bike ride yesterday. Annoying, because biking seems to burn a lot more calories than walking. So I went for a 6-mile walk to try to make up for it. And I did 4.5 miles today. Today is supposed to the last really bad day for wind, so hopefully I can get back on my bike tomorrow morning.
I had a nice quiet Mother's Day...went for my walk, gave the dog a bath, then basically spent the afternoon reading and doing my nails.
Thankfully this looks like another pretty quiet week, work-wise. It'll be non-quiet in that Paul is getting on a plane at the crack of dawn tomorrow, going on a golf trip with a friend. He'll be gone till Saturday night, so that'll be some extra work - in particular, he does all the cooking, so I have to step up and deal with dinner this week.
Okay, enough procrastinating, I need to get back to work, ugh. Happy Monday, all!
