The Woes of Daily Weigh Ins
Thursday, February 09, 2012
Ugh.... Pity party, time. So it WAS going well as I was getting myself back on track, losing weight every day. But, this past week I spent 3 days at 143, one day at 142.2, then the last 2 days were 142.8. Really sucks when I have been doing everything right.... the eating, the exercise. But, I know that I am due for another drop here any day and I am going to be patient. The truth is, my sodium has been a lot higher than it normally is... thinking about concentrating on a low sodium diet over the weekend and weighing in on Monday to see if that does anything?
I am excited with how well my running is going. Been doing 2 miles twice a week (gonna bump it up to 3 next week) and a long run on the weekend (did 7 mi. last Sat. and am planning 9 mi. this Saturday in the c-c-c-c old!) doing 1/1 run/walk ratios. I keep thinking about my Half Marathon I have planned on March 31st and I am getting excited to run another (this will be my 3rd). Running is becoming very spiritual for me. I love making a praise and worship playlist that just fills up my soul every time I run. I get to thinking about God and His amazing glory and it really keeps me going. I remember where I came from--- 210 lbs and very little hope. But it was HIM and the "Voice of Truth" that helped me overcome my barriers.
Eating is going good, but is high in sodium. We are doing a "Secret Valentine" thing at work where we are giving a gift to a co-worker every day the week prior to V-Day. Yesterday I got a package of Dk chocolate.... my favorite!!!! I am eating one bar in the evenings---- after successful days of eating and exercise. Gives me something to look forward to! Me and my chocoalte! My one indulgence for the day. :o) Oh, today I got a bag of toasted coconut coffee.... I came home and made me a couple of cups.... OMG SOSOSO good. I am already looking forward to getting off work tomorrow so I can come home and make some more, LOL!!!!
My wood floors in my room were installed yesterday and they look awesome! Esp. with the pretty yellow color I put on the walls. Now comes the fun part of decorating.... I am just ticked at myself right now because I just put my desk back together---- BACKWARDS!!!!!! Y'all wouldn't believe how typical this is of me.... I always do this!!!!! I am no engineer, lol.....
So that's my update! Still "sparking" and gaining momentum. The change is amazing.... I have no problems getting up in the morning and I don't even have thoughts of taking naps in the afternoons. When I wasn't exercsing and eating right, the thought of a nap comsumed 90% of my thoughts from the moment I got up till I got home from work. And MANY times I would give in..... Now, it doesn't even cross my mind. I like this!!!!!
