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!
