Tales from the Scale: Lights! Camera! Stalemate!
Dear Month Ten,
Hey-oh. Cathy here. Remember me? The one who has commited to Eat Less and Move More? Well I'm back for another report from the scale and this month has officially been dubbed Even Steven. This is first month in this process that didn't yield a loss of poundage on Ye Olde Digital Scale.
I am still falling ever so shy of the elusive 40-pounds of weight loss mark. .9 pounds if we're counting. We were counting, right?
What? You want to know how that makes me feel?
I guess I feel just okay about it. I mean, on the one hand, I feel amazing thus far. I move better, think better, sleep better, and wear jeans better. I'm making active choices because I want to nearly every day. Sure, I've got some aches and pains here and there, but by and large, I feel like I'm living the lifestyle. Full on.
On the other hand, I just returned from a trip up north for the weekend, where, despite logging a nice 4-mile run, I apparently forgot the concept of calories and foods that generally care for and provide nutritional love for your body.
(Candy corn and peanuts anyone? That was the bulk of my dinner last Saturday night. Thank you.)
I guess I'm writing this from a place of feeling like I threw common sense out the window with about as much thought as I give to tossing a used Kleenex. I don't like that version of me quite as much, because that version of me isn't taking care of the Prime Package.
But tomorrow is a shiny new day. In fact, every tomorrow is another chance to Move More, Eat Less and keep the Prime Package in fine working condition.
Here's to tomorrow.
Want to join in? Or document your journey? Or whine along? Or celebrate successes? Both the template above and this one are available at Designer Digitals for those who want to track their progress along with me.
