My Monday went astoundingly well. And my scale has been coming down. Had an excellent workout last night. 20 minutes on my rebounder and some toning afterwards.]

My Own Best Friend, ME, is keeping me on track so the scale doesn't go back up. My weight was trapped in some undercurrent that kept trying to drag it up higher than ever.
I had gained about 15 lbs since Dad died in June, and that was understandable as I purposely let something go, just to get by. But THEN it went up even FURTHER, almost touching 260 just last week or so. Just weird.
This morning I was 250.

Ugh. It angers me to say those numbers, because I joined Spark at between 206-212. Weird how little things can change for the worse. I gained between 30 and 40 in 2014 because I was without my thyroid meds. So I'm pretty ticked that I have to fight THESE high numbers, just to get to work on those LOWER numbers.

But My Own Best Friend is finally here to help me fight it. She's pretty upbeat, and not too cruel or hard on me. Just gives me some gentle prodding and I have learned to concede to her wishes.

And we all lived happily ever after...

most of my stress tension builds up in my neck; anyone else have this problem?

My treat to myself today was heating up a dish towel and putting it on my neck as well as doing neck stretching.

Hope everyone is having a great week. Is it really just Tuesday?

Everyone has great goals. I hope today went well.

Normally I don't treat myself with food, but today, today I did. My son wanted a homemade pizza. Our pizzas are very different from the standard.

I didn't make the crust, but bought a thin prepackaged, (yikes, I don't even want to know the calories). I bake it with evoo, seasonings, chicken, avocado, (mushrooms, and olives, usually, but not today), then when it comes out I put seasoned tomatoes on it. Garlic, pepper, basil. It was so divinely delicious and such a wonderful treat. I had two slices.

It reminded us of California Pizza Kitchen, but better, healthier, and cheaper. LOL

My Monday is starting out fabulously. I am determined to make a positive effect on my health and fitness TODAY.

But right now, I must go curl up in a chair with a blanket and Lord of the Rings and 6 of my children.
Later Gators!

Unfortunately, I've not done a very good job at holding myself accountable. I really need to work on that.

I'm going to treat myself to time with My Own Best Buddy.
emoticon emoticon
I recently met this terrific friend. She's been a real encouragement, reminding me before I make a decision to think through whether the decision is Helpful or Harmful. She also likes to pamper me with treats that I enjoy, but doesn't let me get carried away.
I'm going to have this friend over more often. I really need her. I could have used her YEARS ago.
Who is My Own Best Buddy?

ME.
