#10 Rainy days and Mondays....

Monday, April 08, 2013

Wow, double digit bloging, that's a first. Know what? I think it is helping! Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I know once I actually start seeing some results it will help with the motivation - but right now, at times it is sheer willpower and encouragement that keeps me going on this path.

Today had intentions of getting up early and on the treadmill, but it was a gloomy, rainy, gray Monday morning and I chose to stay in bed and hit the snooze! No walk at noon, still raining out there. Don't want to get soaked on my lunch hour! I know, good intentions get me no where - its action that counts. My plan is to walk after dinner. No excuses.

Took my shower, hopped on the scale and it finally moved to a bit better of a number than it has been showing me. I hate that it moves so slowly!

Well, it feels good to have made it through a couple rough spots. I did have a couple bad food choices, but overall my calorie intake is much better than it was before I started and I am making progress - even if it is a bit of a turtle's pace.

Since it is crappy weather right now, I am taking up knitting again. Decided if I was going to sit around, I might as well be doing something positive. Going to make scarves to donate next winter. Not to mention, if my hands are busy, they won't be mindlessly putting food into my mouth! So two good things will come of it!

Here's to a new week!

    I hope you can get your walks back on track. Just a few minutes a day can make such a big difference on the scale.

    Don't forget to look for that rainbow. You can only see it when it rains. I hate that my scale moves slowly too but I love that I keep trying.

    Wait a few days, then reread your Blog. Great for self-assessment.

    I love that you're focusing on the positive and not dwelling on the lack of leaps and bounds. You're right to do so; every good choice makes a difference!

    I fool around with the computer at night or crochet to keep my hands off of the food. Sometimes I'm even successful! You deserve a quiet day -- enjoy it, and thanks for your thoughtful and supportive comment on my naughty scale blog.
