I Have to Trust My Journey

I originally posted this to my Weight Watchers group, but I decided to go ahead and post it here too.  After all, it is about my journey.

​I have to admit, this weight loss journey has been a never-ending journey for me. Sometimes I get so mad when I don’t see the results that I want and it makes me want to give up.  Why bother, right?  Well, guess what?  I’m not quitting. I am not a quitter. The number on the scale may not be  moving downward, even though I’m steadily tracking now, and trying to be extra careful during this outage (working evenings is hard)  I’m not going to give up. I’m old enough to realize now that this particular journey of my life will be an ongoing one and if it takes me more time to get to to the weight I was created to be at, then so be it.  I am on a journey and I will see the destination that I going to.  I am not defined by a number on the scale and it’s not going to beat me down. I am active and I’m eating better each and every day.  I am proud of myself and that’s good enough for me.  

Sorry for the long post.  No, actually. I’m not. I needed to put this out there.

Feeling Awkward

Tonight my husband and I went out to dinner to Olive Garden. The only problem with this is that he had already eaten dinner earlier while I was visiting family. Of course he didn’t really want to eat anything, so he just got a salad and bread sticks. I told him prior that it makes me feel awkward and I was okay just eating at home, Continue reading

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading

Day 13 of My Sugar Detox

This is day 13th of my 21 Day Sugar Detox.

I have to say that it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be.   During the first few days, I did experience some tiredness and also weakness.  I didn’t realize how weak I was feeling until I took my Les Mills Bodypump class.  After about 10 minutes, I wanted to just lay down and sleep.  My arms felt so weak, and did for a few days after the class.  Once I made
some adjustments that are allowed in the program, I started feeling more energy.   I am doing level one of the sugar detox with the allowed modifications added on days of my workouts.  It’s amazing how adding some sweet potato to your meals and some avocado, give you so much more energy throughout the day!

Sugar Detox

The past couple of months have been terrible for me in regards to my eating habits, and my workouts.  I had to work the graveyard shift at work, so my whole balance of life was thrown off for a month.   At first I thought it would be great, because I had imagined that I would wake up full of energy and be ready to go to the gym.  It never happened that way.
