A little break.

I've been kinda in a funk lately. I'm down, kinda out of it, just a wide variety of yuck. Nothing anyone else can do or say to get me out of it, just kinda something I have to work through. Frustrated with alot of aspects of my life. One of them is the weight loss area, I don't know why honestly, I've been losing ok, just seems like 142 is eluding me.

So whats this mean?

I need a break from things. I won't be updating the blog for a couple weeks. I don't know whether it will turn out to be a week, or a month, but I'm gonna take a bit of break. I will also be taking a break from the scale. He's going to be put in another room, and I will focus on eating right and how I feel as opposed to what he's telling me. I will however spot check myself once or twice, in case I should be switching to maintenance during this period.

What this doesn't mean? No, I'm not quitting weight watchers, I will still be counting points and staying on track. My motivation hasn't been so great lately, but it also hasn't been bad. So I'm still planning on counting points and staying on track. Just will be skipping some weigh ins.

Exercise wise I am going to pay attention to my body. Some weeks I feel like could exercise everyday and be fine with that. Other weeks, my joints hurt and I'm sore and tired. If I'm sore and tired, I need rest, it's my body's way of telling me that. That's how I feel this week, My knees hurt, my calfs hurt, I'm tired and my hip is bothering me. But at the same time exercise makes me feel better...what a catch 22.

Also doesn't mean I won't be keep in touch via your blogs!

So a little vacation for me! But I will talk to you all soon via your blogs!

Hey girl - I know I've been MIA for a bit but I've been keeping up with you! Make sure that you take good care of yourself. Isn't the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder"? Sometimes a break from the norm is just what we need to get back in the right mindset.

If I can help you know how to find me and in the mean time - I'll be thinking and praying for you!

(((HUGS)))

Well, you're certainly not the only one lately feeling like they need a break - could it be the time of year???

I'm going to miss your updates - but I understand the need to get away from all this. Just promise us all that you won't sabotage all of the hard work you've done - you really have been an incredible inspiration to me. Shit - listen to me - no wonder you need a break!!

Take care missy - read you soon, I hope!!

Well we will certainly miss you! Hurry back! And good luck with your break, sometimes you need to just step back and take perspective.

I am feeling the same way. I too put my scale away and only going to spot check myself every once in a while. Just keep your head up and everything will work out in the end.

Kathy said...

Keep posting enough to let us know what you're up to and what you have in the oven! Love the new picture, btw!

i can totally relate to needing a blog 'vacation'... sometimes, we just need to put ourselves first and maintaining a blog needs to be put on the back burner... i've often pondered what i would do instead of blogging, can't really think of anything so maybe that's a sign that i need a real hobby! good luck on your break! :o)

I'll miss the quotes...good to have a break. I've been posting a lot less frequently too, but I do need to stay connected to stay accountable to myself.

Caroline said...

I HATE the funk. Take some time and figure out what might help you. We'll all be here when you get back!
