  1. Hi, I'm a new follower! Saw you on Just Weighing in and Moving on's blog! :)

    I'm really digging the listing off what you did for the day, focussing on the positives, and then giving yourself areas to improve on! Seems like a productive idea! :)

  2. A new job is hectic, no matter what else is going on in your life! You did a great job of getting in your water, tracking and being aware of what was going on, both physically and emotionally. You have a plan in place for next week, so I'd say you are doing GREAT!!!

    Just keep it up, Stormy. Many prayers coming your way!

  3. I was in a funk for a while, so don't be surprised if it takes tine to get back at losing. You are accountable and moving forward. Best of luck with last week of STS challenge!

  4. It all takes time but you can do this. Keep tracking, keep exercising and you will do this. A new job is hard and adds a bit of stress to the mix but lean on your friends, lean on your family and mostly lean on the Lord and all will be fine in due time.
    Keep up the great work and have a blessed week.

  5. I have been through the funk too- luckily, it does pass! You have so much going on- I'm impressed you accomplish the things you do!

  6. That picture you have up top - that's me too! Sometimes your mojo just deserts you, all you can do is brush yourself off and keep trying.
