Discouraged - I want those numbers falling!
Sunday, May 18, 2014
I have worked hard for the last 4 months to maintain a positive attitude and stay focused on making good choices for my health and wellness. I have made great progress. I am making a blog entry today because I am feeling low and overwhelmed. I don't know if this is a "chicken or the egg" situation, but I have also hit a plateau.
I left Wyoming for California three weeks ago to start my new job. Back in Wyoming are my husband and daughter - finishing the school year and selling our house. I miss them so much. They will be here in about 4 weeks. We are doing a good job of staying connected...talking, texting, video chat, and mail. But I MISS THEM SO MUCH.
I can't help but wonder if the stress of this temporary situation is a big reason for my plateau. I have stayed on track with my nutrition choices, my fitness routine, hydration and sleep. I have even made a point of reminding myself that progress is being made, even if the scale is not reflecting it at the moment (see my status update). But I am discouraged. I admit I want those numbers falling.
