I've walked every day this week except yesterday. I was having a really heavy period day, heavier than I've ever had, in fact, and I just needed to take it easy. I almost spent a few minutes feeling bad about myself because I had been going for a streak, and my streak only lasted three days before I needed to take a day off. Instead, I decided that in this case a day off was a loving thing to do for myself not a failure, and that I could continue to love myself by getting right back to walking instead of giving up, which I did today.
In other news, I measured my waistline yesterday and it was 2 inches smaller than it was 2 weeks ago. I'm not getting too excited about that because I could have had an extra bloated day when I first measured or it could just be that I bled my guts out yesterday and the night before. Still, it's a whole lot better than measuring myself and finding that I had gained 2 inches!
Also, I ordered a new mattress today. I'm hoping it is as wonderful as the reviews I've read and that I will experience improved sleep and that improved sleep will result in more energy and greater success as far as my weight loss goals are concerned. I could be pinning a bit too much hope to this new mattress, but that is what I am hoping. Delivery will be in 2-4 weeks. I can't wait!
