Oh the weather outside is.....blah

Winter

I know that the lack or bright sunshine has really affected my mental outlook. It's dark and dreary most of the time. Yeah, the sun is out today....but it's not a brilliant warm filled with goodness sun that just drives away the blahs.

I as doing some serious thinking in the shower this morning (isn't it the best place to think?) and I as thinking about how things in my world seem to be spiraling out of control...and I reminded myself that there is one thing that only I am in control of and that is my eating and exercise. I need to take control and maintain a consistent control! And quite honestly, regaining a long lasting control and getting my weight under control will help my confidence and all that jazz...which will also help other areas of my life!

I woke up this morning and knocked out 1 hour of exercise on the stationary bike. I looked at my mileage for the week (today is the last day of week four). I've got just about 3 miles to complete in order to complete the mileage for this week. So I figure I can jump on the bike for as little as 15 minutes when I get off work and I'll have it done! I didn't make up any miles this week (well, if I ride for more than the 3 miles tonight I'll make up a mile or two) but I as long as I ride tonight, I will not have lost any!!!

We went to dinner last night. Whew...in the last two days I've pretty much blown my flex points for the week. (most of them at least. haa haa haa). I stepped onto the scales this morning. I'm holding steady at pretty much where I've been the last few weeks. Surprising though! I do know that I'm retaining some water (my rings are SOOO tight this morning!)

You do your best thinking in the shower? I do mine on the elliptical. It must be the heat of the shower and the heat of my sweat that gets our blood flowing!

I must admit that while it's a milder winter here this year, i'd rather have more snow and more sun!! It's so dull and dreary right now. And yep, drink lots of water :)

I'm very ready for green grass and blooming flowers!!

Great job on holding steady. That is a success too :)

I do my best thinking washing dishes and vacuming. Too bad I don't do either thing very often.

Just catching up with your recent posts.

I think they were great. I was so sad to hear how you were treated and how it still effects your life.

YOU WILL BEAT THE WEIGHT OUT OF YOU! I believe it.

I am feeling the same way about the weather! I can't wait for the springtime :-)

I wish I could use the bike, I have one sitting in my lounge, but an old neck injury flares up whenever I use it, so it just sits there looking lonesome........

Don't give up!!! It's easier to throw it all away but when you pick up the pieces later, it's so easy to be mad about whatever changed. Stick to what you're doing, because for right now it's manageable, and if you have a day where you feel like you can just back in wholeheartedly - go for it!! We will both get there, eventually!
