January successes and disappointments

Thursday, February 02, 2012

January was a month of highs and lows. After a very rough December--grieving the loss of my husband took a huge emotional and physical toll--I committed to consistent exercise. I don't know how much weight I gained over the holidays, but from my last weigh-in on December 3 to my most recent on January 31, I gained five pounds. That's disappointing after my hard work in January. I used Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home DVDs and walked 20 out of 31 days, and logged 61.5 miles and 925 minutes. I feel good, though. I have more endurance and strength for my day-to-day activities. I stand taller and feel more confident. I hope February is even better, and although I don't have much weight to lose, I hope results show up on the scale at the end of the month.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your dear husband. Such emotional stress can throw everything out of whack. Keep up with the good work and things will get back to a more normal level. February is a new month. One step at a time, things will get better.
