Welcome to another week of Saturday Upsides! Don’t forget to check out this page for Saturday upsides from previous weeks. Please join me this and every weekend to share a positive story from your life! It’s great to take a break from “regular life” on the weekends and think of positive things to share.
I know… I skipped “Saturday Upsides” last week! I was having a busy, fun Saturday in California and just… forgot. BUT! It was a day so full of upsides it would have been perfect.
This week I am already excited that it’s finally less than two weeks until my husband returns. I’ve been really missing him! (He’s been gone since December 10.)
I have been working on staying within a calorie goal and exercising since not long after my husband left. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but is so difficult for someone who:
#1 Loves to eat!
#2 Is a foodie blogger.
#3 Has a super skinny husband who can eat anything.
#4 ((Did I mention LOVES to eat?))
However, aside from my little mini vacation to California and a couple days around the holidays, I have been staying within my calorie limit and exercising more than usual (still not the ideal amount, but it’s a big start).
Sometimes it can be hard to see an upside to this. Of course, now, I see the upside of the pounds I have lost!! But during the process, it’s hard to see that. So what are some upsides that have kept me going?
#1 My Fitness Pal!! (<– click for the link to my profile.) I don’t have a ton of friends on my fitness pal, but I have just enough to encourage me to keep going. My Fitness Pal also makes it easy to track your caloric intake and exercise.
#2 Realizing that my husband will return to a more healthful, thinner, more toned wife! Who wouldn’t get excited about that?
While in California I ate twice at Nubi Yogurt… this is example #1 of my non-healthful food choices. However, you can actually eat healthfully at Nubi – they have plain frozen yogurt (no sugar) and fruit toppings.
So now it’s your turn! Just post your “Saturday Upside” on your blog with my “Saturday Upsides” picture and a link back here, comment on my blog with a link to your post, and I’ll add a link to your blog at the bottom of mine.
Everyone’s posts will be different; please use this “Saturday Upsides” post to share your own unique thoughts, picture/s, and bright sides! I’d love to see posts all weekend, not just Saturday.
