Work It Out
Saturday, April 22, 2017
On day six and I walked almost three miles! For the first time in years I'm excited to step on the scale. I'm not anticipating a huge change (maybe even no change at all), but as I said yesterday, it's not all about the numbers on the scale.
Yesterday was a very stressful day. So much so that I was in tears. My normal routine for that would to be locked in my room with a jar of Nutella and a spoon, marathoning through Grey's Anatomy. Instead, I went for nearly an hour walk around the neighborhood. By the time I came back I felt less stressed and I felt better about the choice I had made.
I've very much stressed to myself ALL the little changes as to not disappoint myself or feel discouraged. One day I know I will be able to say I've lost 10 or 20 pounds, but it's not going to happen quickly. Quite frankly, I don't want a drastic change. As with everything in life anything drastic is typically temporary. I don't want temporary, I want to be in shape for the rest of my life. I don't want back pain or depression to be an excuse anymore. I'm going to control it and not let it control me.
