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.

    We all will have negative thoughts.. but fight back cause it is not His words but the words of someone who wants you to get busy and more busy to take time from Him.. Best Wishes on your new year.. I am heading over to get my finger prints done.. I am retired but willing to lend a hand to all the New Teachers.. They will get the hang of it... In His Love and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon emoticon
