Hey FS,

My buddies, random users who see this entry pop up in their news feed....Kudos to you all on taking a step in the right direction, taking control of your physical state. Its not an easy thing, choosing the healthy lifestyle (especially with society glamorizing outrageous food creations while simultaneously condemning the obesity that comes along with outrageous eating habits)....but when you start down that path, it does become easier over time. Its a matter of recalibrating, retraining and reshaping your views.

While I see everyone on here trying their hardest, offering support and guidance to other users, I'm also seeing a lot of users becoming disheartened and overwhelmed. This seems to come from either the sheer amount of lifestyle change they're trying to undertake in one swoop, or by factors completely outside the realm of dieting that have managed to stress them out to the point of derailing the changes they're trying to make....too many hours at work leaving no energy to try and hit the gym, the loss of a loved one making healthier eating seem pointless in the face of grief....the list goes on and on.

That's the one thing I wish people would focus a little more on in the course of their lives. Taking a small break from everything. Work, family, stress in general.....I know its not easy to do, especially with how much is expected of people today. Work as hard and as long as you can in the hopes of potentially having some time in your 'golden years' to relax and retire. People taking more classes in college in the hopes of getting a better job to help pay for their school debts, its an endless cycle. Can't get the degree without funds, can't get funds without a good job, can't get a good job with the degree (in most cases, not all).

While physical health is surely important, please do not discount your mental well being! Take a few moments to do something for yourself, something to unwind, decompress, remind yourself that you have so much potential, and that you have done amazing things in your lifetime.

After this last week I'm not surprised to see the scale moving in the wrong direction....went to a wedding on Saturday, had my period all this week, and just was bad dieting in general.

I'm getting back on the wagon this week, however. My dear boyfriend went and lent me his bike so I can go biking when my feet hurt too much to run, and I picked up a Groupon yesterday for
Yoga & Fitness Passport, which gives me 30 classes for $20 at local participating gyms (in my area I get option of regular cardio classes, capoiera, kickboxing, its great!)

My goal is to try and get into the 160s by October, as my kid brother is graduating from Marines boot camp.


Happy Sunday!

Its the little victories that keep me going. I've been super hungry lately, even on days where I don't exercise. Typically after dinner I end up having some sort of snack, but last night I was so good! I finished my bottle of water and basically told the calorie devil on my should to bugger off. Went to bed and skipped the additional calories.

And just now (at work), went to the break room, looked over my options, and decided that it wasn't worth it, despite feeling hungry.

I've been going back to the gym at work recently because my toes have started to ache from my running (I have flat arches, which can cause occasional stress fractures), so the elliptical is the current weapon of choice.

Our friend's wedding is a week from Saturday. Let's see if I can drop a little more weight before then.


Happy Wednesday!
