melting the stress and hopefully the pounds!!

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

first morning this year that i have turned on the heat. i think it is around 39 outside.
i hate this time of year and yet i love it.
hate that i know it wont be long til turning on the heat will be a daily thing. and snow and mud and ice will probably keep me home some days.
but i love the cooler temps allow me to wait til later in the day to go walking. when the rest of the world is also awake and i dont have to drive to the track in the dark just to beat the heat.
this is the time of year when families begin to start planning for the upcoming holidays.
this year i doubt much that my family will get together to celebrate.
sad that my moms mental health is failing and her family are falling apart around her.
but on the plus side for me, no cooking and no overeating.
i plan to make travel plans over the thanksgiving holiday and maybe go to the mountains.
i just need to unwind, let go of the stress of the last few days.
today, my only plans, are to walk and walk alot.
i am going to hike and get in more steps today than i have ever clocked.
the cooler temps are going to help with that.
so it isnt all bad.
i havent been on the scale in nearly 2 weeks and i dont really want to get on it.
i can feel the weight loss, in my body, loser clothing and just can see and tell there has been some loss.
the scale reflects very little of that.
i am almost always disappointed when i get on it and i dont really want to feel that way this weekend.
i go back to the doc the 27th so i think im staying off the scale until then and only because i know they will want to weigh me will be my reason for getting on.
i will be happy with ANY loss.
i feel i have kicked things up and have been really eating alot cleaner the last couple of weeks.
i guess with all things time will tell.
today, is just a stress free me, no answering the phone, no family drama, no weigh in, no no no, just yes yes yes!!!
