HealthyWage Challenge Day 10

Today, I weighed in at 160.2 lbs. It was a small gain, but that’s to be expected. I don’t expect to continuously lose weight every day. My body is probably trying to achieve some type of homeostasis or balance. Today is also my strength day in my exercise program. As an advancement in my program, I added some back exercises to my routine.

Also, I was feeling very Positive during and after my workout. For some reason, the runs that I’ve been doing have been very healing mentally. I consider them meditative. Even though my mind chatter persists, the constant changing scenery usually takes hold of my mind at some point, or at least provides distraction. Then, it provides a space to be positive.
