I did five days of yoga this week including - Beginning Yoga, Yin Yoga for Back Care (my favorite class), Slow Flow and Heart Center Flow, and Wii Fit. I also added in one day of water aerobics and enjoyed being back in the water. It is still a challenge to me when the rooms are too hot - but I am trying to speak up and ask for the fans to be turned on. This week was all about Vitality and turning off those inner tapes we play in our heads. I have tapes that play in my head all the time, whether is about my weight, my scars or I'm not pretty enough. These are all things I need to work on. One day at a time.
I am still not journaling - it is my weakest part in this. Not sure how to work on this part.
Meditation is still amazing - my favorite part is the meditation I practice before bedtime, I feel like it makes me sleep so peacefully. It makes me stop the "to do's" in my head I always get before I fall asleep.
I ate great this week - they said in the weekly meeting last week to not use cans, no microwaves or processed food - and I stuck to that and felt great. I am working on adding more fruit and vegetables - and continue to challenge myself on that everyday.
My biggest challenge for me this week came today - when I was on my Wii Fit and it showed that I haven't really lost weight. I have lost close to 3 pounds. I hate that I look at the scale, I need to remember HOW GOOD I FEEL - but the scale....ugh the scale. I wanted to give up, I wanted to cry, I wanted to crawl in bed and say I'm done. But I have to remember I am feeling better, I feel more alive. I know this takes time - and I know it is actually better to take weight loss slower. I just need to stay positive.
Thank you all for listening to me - I have had such wonderful support through this and will continue to need it throughout my journey.
Until next week.....xoxo
