Discouragements

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I don't work on Wednesdays and so I have noticed that if I have not been on track for the days leading up to it, Wednesday usually serves as my reset day where I try to get back on track. This is definitely the case, today!

I've come to find that Valentine's week is always a little challenging when you're trying to lose weight. Yesterday, I had the most amazing cupcake at the office and, I really have no regrets about that. Haha.



I haven't been feeling great this week. I finally got over my acute bronchitis just long enough to get sick with something else. I have some congestion and a sore throat. I am just so tired of being sick and tired. It's been a little discouraging.

Another discouragement has really just been the weather lately. This week we had freezing rain, some tremendous winds and now it's looking like we are getting a little snow storm on top of it all. It is February 13th and I am officially over winter. The snow is beautiful but, I really miss the warm weather summer brings.

I'm not big on sharing the discouragements but, it definitely is part of life. This time of year can be especially hard for me because it's around this time that I notice the intense effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder. It's hard to be motivated this time of year but, this is the time when I need to just keep pressing on. 

I know this week is filled with cupcakes, candy and chocolate. I know that I will (and have) indulge in these things. I also know that while it might affect the scale for a short period, that is okay. I will get back on track. I will feel better soon.
