I've been noticing major changes, one in particular: I no longer head straight for the junk food when I am feeling all stressed out. No, I have not been perfect in my eating, I know I have not been doing the kind of damage that I USED to do when the stress was piling up. In fact, I am turning more toward exercise than anything else! It has been keeping me sane and motivated!
Want to know a secret? This time of year is also a hard one for me (if you go to my earliest post, you may understand why). But I created something new for ME this year to help me feel those positive endorphins that come from exercise:
O' Fitness Tree
Folks, this little tree has kept me moving. When things are hard and for those days I have to really struggle just hold it together sometimes, getting a sticker on this tree has kept me on my feet, energized, feeling strong and feeling proud. I can't wait to see this thing all decorated!
Ok, now on to the Week 3 Weigh in for the Holiday Hoedown Challenge over at the Sisterhood. Once again, I have stayed EXACTLY the same! Even with the friggin. 2! I am still at 199.2 for two weeks in a row now. Not sure what is up with that? I have been exercising and am even continuing with my Couch to 5K training. I'm on Week 5 Day 1 completed. A bit behind from the rest of the group but still committed to it! AND I did a Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving. I will just keep up all the good things and I know eventually the scale will move again in the southern direction!
