Despite the fact that I know I gained weight this week due to the lack of time to plan meals I am suprised at my attitude about it. Normally I would sulk and be depressed but I am learning that it doesnt do me any good to feel that way. Instead today I know I need to be careful and watch what I eat and try to make sure I stay within my range so I can have a good weigh in tomorrow. I know its not the end of the world and I can make it up with next weeks results. I am think I am almost to a point that I WANT exercise and that I am feeling good when I am done. I am going to try to check my heart rate during my walk one day this week to see where its at. I have noticed it doesnt feel as if it has to work as hard as it used to and my muscles dont take as long to recover from a hard workout as they used to. Those are all signs that my increased activity level is really starting to pay off. I was also very blessed to have friends and family tell me how good I looked at my BILs wedding Saturday and that has also encouraged me to keep going.
