Monday Blues

I really don't understand it.

Sense of frustration right now is immense.

I did not take a sip of alcohol. I did not take in any extra unhealthy carbs. I worked my ass off at the gym Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I am not PMSing. I drank gallons of water.

Maybe I am working too hard.

I really don't know. This seems to echo what the GM book says that no matter what you do, if your body doesn't want to lose, if your body doesn't feel it is safe to lose, then it won't. I will have to go back to tackling the subconscious mind hangups I guess.

Please don't tell me muscle weighs more than fat and I'm building muscle. I don't believe in that thought.

Really feeling low....I would take today off from the gym, but I'm donating blood on Wednesday so I definitely need to take that day off instead.

I definitely think you need a day off. A day of relaxation - no exercise, eat some carbs, maybe a massage or pedicure. A "Me Day" if you will. This has totally happened to me before and it always has to do with stress and anxiety. Or working too hard. Last week's 2 pound loss was astounding because I ate like a pig last Thursday and Friday. LOL. I think you deserve a day of the same =)

Off to email you now!

Oh sweetie, don't get down. You know there's ups and downs and weight fluctuations. It will turn around.
And yes, I know this is easier to say then to hear - I don't hear it when I say it to myself, but try to stay positive.
Just think: I'm going to buy a ticket to the Sox game in Sept to see my buddy Soxy Deb (oh and the red Sox) and I'm *going* to wear my new Tek jersey (and watch Deb be green with envy-lol). That's inspirational, right?

Seriously, love you and stay strong. It will turn around!

Don't lose hope. You are my inspiration!

Work on the subconscious stuff and try to really believe that thin is safe.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having a bummy day! I hope tomorrow will be better.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
