Challenge Day 51
Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Casey and I had a good short walk this morning. No prong collar and he did pretty well. I know in parts of the country it is really cold this morning, but at 62 degrees here I enjoyed a long sleeve shirt.
Now I am all warmed up and going to the YMCA shortly for some elliptical trainer before the Silver Sneakers class. I hope Aquagirl is able to participate; I know she wants to and has been missed due to her surgery. Mary, the instructor, mentions her each week. I have piano lesson this afternoon and then the kids after school. Going to be another active, healthy day!!
The scale is being difficult. I swear I should weigh several pounds less than I do based on what I have been eating. That's what I think I deserve. But, well, maybe that is not my 70 year old reality. After 10 years of maintenance you would think I would not let the scale upset me, and I am trying to be logical. I am trying to look at trends, not just one weigh-in. I want to just keep eating smart and I know it will all work out! I am probably more easily upset by food and weigh-ins than anything else in my life, and I know that is not the most important thing. I'd rather have an insult from my husband than a weigh-in that is .5 pounds over the day before. OK. I need to change this thinking. I'm trying!
Perhaps a mantra to change my thinking? "I am more than a weight on the scale." "Happiness is more than a weight on the scale." "Eat right and the scale will follow." Hmmm. Other suggestions, please!
