Weigh in this week and I've lost 1/2 Ib Yipee!! It's been a long time coming !
I would like to say a huge thank you to Ruth _canal runner for her post yesterday ' Thursday pledge having a productive day' it really got me thinking and reflecting.💐
Since Jan 2016 I've really struggled with my weigh loss journey and while I can identify ongoing health issues and the recent loss of my best boy Calvin as factors, I felt I had lost my way.
I was ok with getting my exercise in due to the fantastic challenges run by FizzyLiz and moreless, but I did not always make the best food choices so weigh loss was static. Yesterday changed that 😃 Reading Ruth's post I decided to have a 'productive day' and while out on my walk I started to reflect on why I am stuck, yes it's been an emotional time but then a 'lightbulb moment' I don't feel productive !
Feb 2015 I was given early retirement from work following a stroke and until then I had worked full time from age 16yrs. Once rehab was finished I had loads of time on my hands and was focused on improving my health and fitness. I have realised that over the last last few months my mood had dropped and the reality of what I had been through and where I am now in my life is scary !
As I walked in the sunshine I thought how my life had been and how it has changed but most importantly how I want it to be, and that is healthier, happier, fitter and fulfilled 😃
From today I will be more focused on my week, I can plan my food and exercise, now I need to start planning the rest of my life 'being productive' 😃( well that's feel better !!)
Here's to a productive week for us all
