All's well that ends well?

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Today wasn't one of my better days; I woke up with severe indigestion, back pain, and a bad attitude. I went to my Weight Watcher meeting where the scale had me back up 3 pounds from the 4 pound weight loss of last week. Then I had a very high calorie pasta lunch with the girls at an Italian restaurant. It was so delicious and I just didn't care. I just needed it. Boo-Hoo.
So I took a nap this afternoon, made a few cups of green tea, visited some inspiring Spark friends' blogs and now I'm feeling better. I'm going to journal a bit, set a new weight goal for myself and retire early with some TV for the night.
I'm finishing out the day with a much more positive outlook than when I started this morning, thank God, so if it ends well I guess it's been a good day.

    Yep, Life is a round of just that kind of ups and downs, sometimes all in the same day. If you were four pounds down and then three pounds up, that's still an overall loss of a pound. ALL progress is GOOD progress!

    While I think of it - I had cut back on the green tea and started drinking some of the more flavorful herbal teas, one with fennel, a ginger mix, a few others. My weight loss had slowed and my blood glucose was showing a bit of instability. It occurred to me that it might be due to the changes in my tea routine, as my diet remains essentially the same. I made a point of going back to more green tea each day and less of the 'fun' teas. Well, by golly, the scale has moved a little bit, and the BG has leveled out again. So... in short, keep drinking the green tea. I think it does a body good!

    Well, it is now Thursday morning, and I hope your day goes better today. Sounds like you have the right attitude, though. Put it all behind you, that was yesterday. Today you get the opportunity to make better choices and I am sure you will.
    I seem to have hit a plateau, but I know I am still doing the right stuff. Sooner or later it will show on the scale!
    Have a nice Thursday,
    Karen

    They say that when you veer off track, to not focus on that....reconize that you did....and it's what you do at that point that matters so focus on the now and push forward.. Which sounds like you are on the right track!
