Healthy You Challenge Week 39

This will be a quick one for the HYC:

I am down 1.4 from where I was last week, so very happy about that! For exercise, I got in 4 days this week which is good. I had hoped to get another day in, but Ill take 4.

Emotionally I am feeling more upbeat. I think a part of me was depressed because I was sad that summer was over. It was like I had done so many fun things, and then I had nothing to look forward to. But its almost fall and I love fall. I love going to the pumpkin farm, corn maze, drinking apple cider, all that great stuff. I am going camping with my boyfriend in a few weeks, and also have a wedding coming up. So I feel better now that I have something to look foward to other than work. The stress at work is increasing every day, but at least I am not stress eating and trying to work out my stress in other ways like exercise, reading, etc. So it feels good right now..like I am taking care of ALL of me.

Woohoooo congrats on the loss! That's great Heather! I know what you mean about having things to look forward to. I think they are so important to our emotional health. Sounds like you are doing great and I'm really glad to hear you are feeling more upbeat. I can tell you are feeling better just from reading :)

Congrats on the weight loss Heather. Your doing an awesome job. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog ...your right ...at least I didn't have a gain , if I can't lose on any given week then maintaining is second best :)

You seem to be doing really well :-) I love fall too, it's the best season in New England, where I am now!

Congrats on the loss..it always feels so great when things come together, doesn't it.

Fall is my favorite season, although I don't get the feel of it down here but I remember it well. Enjoy the pumpkin picking and apple cidar.

Taking care of ALL of you.......that's a great place to be. They say change of seasons brings on depression...it's very common!

Dive into fall! Camping sounds like a blast. Enjoy the cooler temps....great for snuggling :)

Great to hear the good news. I'm the same way about tieing my emotions to the scale. Don't feel bad about it. One day, perhaps, we can be free of the scale. But for now, it's a tool & we use it that way and lookie, we are reaching new lows!
