Momentum in May

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Three days in, and I am happy to report that despite stressors at work, and jaw pain from clenching my teeth to get through the day, I have not strayed from my goals, and my commitment to eating properly, and exercising. As easy as it might have been to not deal with the aggravation and stress, and stuff my face with bad foods, I chose not to. I chose to continue the long, hard task ahead of me of taking of this weight for once and for all.

I'm moving more. I'm feeling better. I have much more endurance, cardiovascularly. I know I am progressing, even when I have weird scale days, or a phantom 5 pound weight gain overnight, which takes a week to remove, and then another 3 pound drop the next day. I am not relying on that fibbing piece of equipment to set my mood for the day. I know that even if the scale hasn't caught up with what my body and mind are doing today, it will by the weekend. Or next Monday. Or whatever other day - progress, always moving forward, always working towards my goal.

Feels good, I tell ya. Feels real good.

    Would chewing gum help? Or would you just clench it too? I had what the doc called "Cluster Headaches" once. Constant BAD headache (with jaw pain) for six weeks. I tried everything, including buying a rubber mouth guard, because I was clenching my teeth too. Mine was bright red and quite noticeable, but I was on midnight shift at the time and didn't care if anyone saw it. I'm sure they make less noticeable ones, even clear or small and unobtrusive. Worth a shot. Ask your dentist, since you see him/her so often. Couldn't hurt, right?
