I started this post weeks ago… helpful hint #1 if you are not going to post immediately you should do it in Word… Lost the entire thing….twice….I am a slow learner. So I will just date and post what I had put on my facebook page for the last week.
I met a lady named Tracy who adopted a toy fox terrier and she uses the same vet I did, we laughed because our names are close, I too adopted a toy fox terrier and well we share the vet. When I got to the top this wonderful young lady named Chelsea took my picture for me.
Tomorrow if the weather is good I will take a different trail I also need to pre-blend and prep my greens for the month!
It is amazing how these 2 simple steps have transformed my life. It saddens me when I see others who post positive things yet do not live by them. Life, even in the toughest of times, can be incredibly beautiful if we make it. It is up to us, no one else. We are responsible for our happiness, if we are not happy then we must change that. I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and I feel like the goal of this page has gotten somewhat lost. My goal was to have these be about my journey to find happiness and health, to go hand in hand with my blog. Social media can be so utterly toxic and heart breaking.
One of the worst things is people who are constantly passive aggressive. (Disclaimer: this might be passive aggressive) Keep in mind that posting negative remarks or comments about people even when you do not name them, does not mean they do not read it and know it is directed at them or someone reads it and wonders if they are the person it is being directed at.
So I am taking back my page, I am going to start disabling seeing posts on my feed if they become angry or full of negativity. I am not going to be derailed from this journey to get healthy. For the first time in 20 years I have eliminated some of my blood pressure meds but stress has made it elevate a bit. For the first time in a very long time I am making me a priority. I want to be healthy and happy for my family.
I posted on Monday that I had gained 2 pounds but was not going to let it derail me, then like a fool I weighed again on Tuesday and was up for a total of 4 pounds! I decided it was muscle because I have really kicked up my hiking, I also decided to stop weighing more than once a week….. but true to form I stepped on it again today and have lost the 4 I gained.
I was trying to figure out what I was doing differently other than the hiking. Turns out when I calculated to see if I changed brackets I did it wrong so have been under eating and my body was going into starve mode. Now I wasn’t feeling deprived but clearly I need more protein than I was getting. I am thinking this,will help with my extreme tiredness as well.
So moral of the story is listen to your body, make sure double check your glfigures and NEVER EVER let the scale tell your story. I have 1 tenth to lose to hit 40 pounds and half a pound to get in the 230’s woooooot. Life is friggen amazing on 21 day fix. Happy Friday.
PS today is 10-11-15 and I am down to 138 wooohooo out of the 240’s!
