So after my moodiness surrounding the number on my scale yesterday, I did a few things that really helped:
- I did No More Trouble Zones DVD (Jillian Michaels)
- I went to Zumba with an amazing instructor who is always positive and really lifted me up
- I realized this is just a set back and I need to form and action plan, follow it, and move on (easier said than done)
- I also realized I needed to turn this frown upside down so I did some meditation to turn my thinking into more positive thoughts
So, I decided I am going to research heavy lifting and see if I think its right for me. I think it is, but I need to be informed. I need to realize this is just a minor setback that can easily be rectified. I need to eat more veggies (I only eat them at 1-2 of my 5 mini-meals). I hate that I let the scale get to me so much, but abandoning it just does not work for me :(. I think I can weigh myself once a week so I do not become obsessive but at the same time am held responsible for my eating. Weight just plays with my mind so much and I thought I was beyond those thought processes but I guess I am not.
Today I am going to do a little yoga now to make my sore muscles (from Jillian Michaels) feel better and to put me in more of a zen place. My fav Zumba class is also tonight, so I am going to go to that as well. There is also a Whole Foods trip in my future today, we found a tequila lime rubbed salmon that is TO DIE FOR = dinner tonight! I also need some essentials like broccoli, Fage 2%, stevia, strawberry mineral water, you know the usual.
Today I am also promising myself I will call back recruiters and get some resumes out. I am writing it on here so I actually do it! So, I have not really talked about my life situation, but I graduated from UT Austin this August. Some endocrine issues got in the way after graduation, so I have been living at home with my lovely parents, Marianne and Kevin. I finally have my thyroid and pituitary issues worked out as of two weeks ago I started feeling better, so now I am on the job hunt! I love to work, I just hate to look for work but who doesn’t? So many things to do, I better get started on them now!
Have a great afternoon blog friends, and I will be back later tonight!
