A challenging week...
Monday, August 22, 2016
Well, last week was really the first week in a while that I have struggled through the whole week. I am a teacher and getting ready to get back into the routine of the school year. That means some stress, probably, and less time with my sweet little boy and I think it was just getting to me.
At first during my journey (which began this past March) it really clicked in my head. I actually did not struggle as much as I thought I would. Sure there were some downfalls, but I always picked right up and carried on. This past week has been filled with cravings, anger that I have to even count calories, and just being down on myself. I haven't been losing pounds like I was and have been fluctuating right around the same numbers, but I know I have been eating more too so I cannot expect to lose. I know it is not all about the scale, but I just felt tired of trying this past week. I know I have lost and it feels great to fit in pants that I haven't worn in years! You'd think that would be enough for me to not have these negative thoughts. However, I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE UP and you shouldn't either. We are all human and will have these weeks. Let's recharge our minds and keep up the good work! Have a good Monday everyone.
