Another week, another HYC. Last week I did not weigh in so I dont have anything to compare my weight to. Which is probably a good thing since I havent been having the best weighins lately. But of course the HYC is not just about weight loss, so here is how I have been doing otherwise:
Exercise: I was able to get 4 days in this past week. I was hoping for 5 again, but it has been a crazy week at work and time has not been on my side. 4 is not so bad, and I made it to 30 sessions completed of Pilates on Saturday. Anyone knows that a principle of pilates says that you can expect a whole new body at 30 sessions. I dont know if I exactly have a whole new body, but I feel pretty good and I know that the inches I have lost are due to doing this (and other exercise as well).
Mentally: Mentally I am doing ok. I had lunch today with the graphic designer who was my friend that was fired a few weeks ago. Seeing him made me feel better because I really do know that he is doing ok. I have spoken to him since then, but seeing him in person helped a lot. I was really able to express to him how his being fired made me feel and knowing that he is over it has helped me realize that I need to stop being angry over the situation. He has moved on, so I dont need to be angry or hurt for him anymore. So we had a nice lunch (went to the breakfast place we always go to), and ate on plan. I have also started to open up more about how I am feeling mentally. I have shared it on this blog, with my boyfriend, and with a few people at work. It feels good not to pretend anymore that things are great (even though I dont think I was pretending so well), and while I dont really feel like I am happy exactly, I feel mentally in a better spot than where I was a week ago.
