Gearing up for the Big Day
Monday, April 18, 2011
I wish I could say that my son’s upcoming wedding had giving me the incentive to lose more weight. The truth is I’ve been out of control for over a month now. My mind keeps telling me to get it together and get back on track, but the rest of me is not cooperating. I am a stress eater and as much as I thought I wouldn’t be stressed out I was wrong and I’ve eaten out of control!
I’ve been seeing a physical therapist for a couple months now for my foot and so my exercise has been a bit limited. Just when I thought things were improving and I started walking again, I end up with a setback this weekend. We have been working to get me to a point that I will be able to walk on the beach for the wedding this Friday, but I’m thinking I will have to just suffer through.
The place we are staying is located along the ocean and there is a path that takes you from one town to the other. It is the best place to walk in my opinion. I love the rocky coast and the way the coastline changes with the tide. I will hope for the best, but not set my sights too high.
Over the next week I will not be as active as I have been on Spark People, but I will be having fun. I have some girlfriends from elementary and junior high school coming to Maine for the wedding, so laughter will be a major part of the next week. I’m looking forward to it and hoping this time brings me out of the funk I have been in.
