Rest Day Sunday

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog yesterday about being stronger but not thinner! YES, I can see now that I really AM thinner (smaller) even if the scale doesn't reflect LIGHTER. That shift in thinking made me feel really good!

Oh! And the scale was down 2 pounds today, the mysterious one I gained and one that hopefully will stay gone. I always like to wait a few days before changing my ticker to make sure it STAYS gone!

Today is an actual rest day, which is a relief. I feel like I've been going like a bat out of h*ll for a couple of weeks now. It's supposed to rain all day, so what a great day to do some cooking, cleaning, and catching up.

I've got a big pot of broccoli potato soup on the stove and will make meatloaf muffins and a seafood quiche later today. We eat homemade soup every day for lunch. I'll freeze the meatloaf muffins and take them out for TC when I have salmon, which he doesn't care for.

There is a Moving Comfort Sports Bra fitting this afternoon, sponsored by my running group, so I may go to that. I do wear Moving Comfort sports bras and like them very much, but maybe there's a different style or size that would be better. You know what they say -- 80% of us are wearing the wrong size bra! So we'll see.

Well, enough rambling for one blog! I am definitely planning to have a careful eating day since I am not exercising. I hope you have a fun, relaxing, enjoyable day as well, Sparkpeeps!

    Way to go on that 2 pound loss!! I read your blog about getting stronger and you sure have! The commitment you've made to yourself will allow you and TC to totally enjoy your retirement years!! I'm very happy for you!

    Wish I had done the same when I was your age and even younger but that time is done so there is only the future!!

    Keep up the great work - I'm rooting for you to win that $200 5% loser prize!!

    Sounded like a fun day! Perhaps you should keep a chart on what the scale says... it is the trend that is more telling.
    I hope you went to get fitted, there is nothing like having the proper equipment. With my guys, those meatloaf muffins would disappear out of my freezer.
    You are doing great Keep Sparkling!!!

    Good going on the 2 lb loss.
    How'd the bra fitting go? I went to a fitting once and, yes, found out that I'm wearing a wrong size...
    Hope your rest day was lovely.

    Mmmmmm that soup sounds good! Mine today is garam masala chicken lentil (secret ingredient: peanut butter!!). Had a nice bowl after what is likely to be the last xc ski of the year!

    Have a great day. You'll come back tomorrow with energy to burn!
    Congrats on losing 2 pounds! That scale is finicky for me, too.

    A rest day is so important. Relax and refresh (somewhere in between all of those good activities you mentioned....)

    Great event for your running group to sponsor! I am frugal but good bras are an expense I gladly invest in. Such a difference every single day. And I highly endorse the expert fitting....though not while running, and not while in a group.
