Monday, I woke up when the alarm went off as usual, and began getting ready for work. At first I just sat on the bed and thought about it. I didn't really want to go. I had the same attitude about dieting this weekend. I just really didn't want to, so I didn't. I ate Tex-Mex, popcorn (a whole bag), some random candy, and bread. No bike riding this weekend either.

There is a feeling restlessness in me right now. It comes around every now and then. I don't really know how to describe it. It's like I feel like I'm in the wrong place. Like there is something else I should be doing. I think I'm bored with work, work, diet, diet.

Someone told me today that I looked like I've lost some weight. =) Now, I'm losing weight for myself and to be healthy, but I have to admit that hearing this brief little statement made me feel really good. Made me want to make good food choices and ride my bike when I get home. Why do I have to hear it from some one else? Why do I need that compliment? I don't know but I really appreciate it. Thanks for noticing!

Hope you have a good evening. I'm going to watch Biggest Loser and hope no more men cry. Don't forget to drink your water.


  1. I think it means so much to have someone notice because we are hardest on ourselves. Plus, when we see ourselves day in and day out in the mirror, it's hard to see a change. We'll get there. :-)

  2. We all need validation from others. Even people who are great at loving and validating themselves need it.

    Biggest Loser is on tonight, thanks. I almost forgot.

  3. It is really nice to have that noticed.

    I drank my water today and now getting ready for some good night zzzz's

  4. I know what you're feeling. It just seems.........endless sometimes. I know it's supposed to be a slow process. But sometimes, just sometimes, I want to be thinner, healthier, happier, stronger, Right Bloody Now!!!

  5. I think we all need the compliments.
    even if we are at the point of not thriving on external accountability and able to 'decorate our own soul' it is ALWAYS nice to have our efforts noticed.

    the key and struggle is not to become derailed if they arent.


  6. How is it going? Hope better. I know what you mean. It just seems like an endless rut sometimes. The time just before the change of seasons seems to bring it around for me also. Those are the times where something completely different thrown in can turn it around. The trick is finding and doing the completely different ;-).
    Hey a compliment always adds a little spring in the spirit. It is like I tell my husband, I like to hear I love you. He says but you know I do after all these years. Still it is so nice to hear it just thrown in there out of the blue, no strings attached, now and then. It is just a little shot of feel good.

  7. Congrats on the compliment. It means so much when others start to see the changes!

    Had to really laugh at your comment about TBL...hoping no more grown men cry. Too funny. Although I LOVED the look of pride on Ron's face when he heard what his son did!!!

    I hope you are feeling better (emotionally) SOON!

  8. It's always nice to receive compliments! WTG! Hope you get over the funk soon!

  9. Everyone likes to hear appreciation when they've done a good job, at anything. Don't forget to say some good things to yourself too! Your body thanks you, that's for sure.
