Eye opening day today
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
I’ve been back at Spark People most of this month. I think I started again on the first or second. I’ve been able to plan, track and log most days so far. We did travel to see our son and that was more challenging- I know I didn’t track everything and had to guess sometimes when I did. But overall, so far this has been a successful month as far as committing to the program.
I was disappointed when I stepped on the scale today because it hasn’t moved much at all. But I logged it (weekly task) and went about my morning. I’m loving adding the 10-15 minute yoga videos to my mornings. It makes me feel like I’m ahead of my day before I even leave the house.
I realized when I was on my way to work that I feel good. Like, generally I’m feeling good about me, my health and the path I’m on. I thought back to the scale this morning and realized it’s only a piece of my journey. It’s not really going to help me be a better me on its own. How I’m feeling matters more, because if I’m feeling positive and motivated I will keep going. It was a game changer for me... an eye opener.
I know we set goal dates for our weight loss... but honestly after thinking more about how good I feel today, I’m thinking I’m going to work towards more days like this instead of the scale and date on a calendar. It will follow suit in its own time. I just need to keep moving in this direction and stay connected to Spark People. It helps to have community!
