All In Good Time

Well, I’ve been home for a few days, I’ve enjoyed some lazing around (planting flowers last Friday evening – see picture to the left), then some cleaning up and today getting laundry done. I have a post brewing in my mind about my past weeks’ experience with “letting go” health wise. It wasn’t a pleasant experience for the most part (except for temporary enjoyments that came with the first bites of yummy foods), but it was a learning one to be sure.

In the meantime, things are getting back to normal. I did the 30-day Shred yesterday. Then my kids and I went to the public pool where I spent about an hour treading water on and off while they splashed about. I felt great.
Then I woke up today sore as all get out in my upper body. Whew! Taking time off from regular exercise sure left me out of shape and I felt every odd muscle that I used in my workout yesterday aching this morning. I have to say, though, that it still felt great. Today I’ll be doing a walk just to give those muscles time to recoup a bit more.
The eating is also getting much better and already I can feel the difference it’s making. I think I mainly feel better knowing I’m getting control back in my eating and exercising life. I know the scale will start to go down soon, and I’ll once again start to see more progress towards my weight loss goal.
I hope you’re having some nice summer days and thanks for checking in on me!
p.s. I got the “thanks for checking in ” from Staci at Weight Loss Mama…she’s so sweet and that’s how she ends her posts. I just had to adopt it, because it’s how I feel every time someone comments and I know you’re rooting for me and my journey! 🙂
