Not a Fan of Mondays

Monday, January 25, 2010

I always have a hard time transitioning from the relaxed atmosphere of the weekend to the "hurry-hurry-hurry" mindset of the workweek. I race from one activity to another and feel like I am being sucked down a whirlpool that I can't escape from until Friday night.

Well, anyway, it's Monday morning at 6:09 and I have 21 more minutes before I have to get on the treadmill toget my workweek started, so I'm going to enjoy the next 21 minutes. Oops, 20.

I was not pleased to bounce up 1.5 pounds between yesterday morning and today. But I'm taking it philosophically because what is the alternative? Throw in the towel? Go on a mini-meltdown and eat a bunch of crap out of revenge? I did eat at the top end of my calorie range yesterday but it was a vegetarian day, so ??? Who knows?

I'm weighing every day per Beck to lessen the emotional impact of the scale numbers on my weight loss efforts. If I hadn't weighed in all week I would have been seriously disappointed by the scale this morning, but considering yesterday I was 160, I can live with 161.5 this morning knowing it will go down in the next day or so.

Hope everyone has a GREAT start to the week and DO YOUR BEST to make this a perfectly wonderful SPARKPEOPLE DAY!! WE DESERVE IT!

    I have always liked Mondays. New start, New beginnings,

    You are doing well. if things have got you down, just say "Oh Well" and move on toward your goal. You know you have the tools. Attitude is everything.

    You are really doing okay TG - keep the focus because next week that "6" WILL BE GONE - I've established that as my goal for you!

    I know what you mean about Mondays but think about your vision collage, that black dress and you'll be fine.

    Hope you have a great day and I KNOW you'll have a great week - REMEMBER that "6" is history next Monday - HISTORY!

    You are doing a GREAT job talking to yourself sanely. At the top of your calorie range is still IN your calorie range and deserves CREDIT. You know this did not make the scale go up. Remember, "a pint's a pound . . . " so this is just the weight of one 24-oz water bottle. Like you said, it WILL GO DOWN, and very soon. You are doing a fabulous job staying on track. I am pulling for you!!
