So I am feeling totally pumped today! And I think it is stemmed from my weigh in! It was depressing- but a wake up call for sure. I have come to terms with the fact that I will ALWAYS have to workout. I am simply the type of person who gains when they don't. So I will always have to workout forever and I just need to buck up and do it.
I had a very long conversation with my husband this morning. It was a great conversation. We discussed my weight loss goals and his role in them. He really didn't dare to say anything about the things he noticed I was doing to destroy myself. Bottom line, I need someone to call me out on my crap. I need someone to tell me that I have had enough to eat or to exercise- at least for now. I need someone to motivate me and he has offered to do so. I need hand holding until I am completely back on the wagon. And while I love my accountability buddies here (Thank you Julie, Sam and Erika)- I need someone in my face all the time and who better then my husband. He is so healthy- and has himself lost like 50 pounds- and eats so healthy... so a good influence that's for sure.
Anyway- now that I am getting closer to getting Xavier weaned, I have more time during my breaks at work. So I decided to spend them walking!
It's not a huge lot- but it takes about 10 min to walk around the whole thing at a pretty quick pace. I sit at a computer all day- so I understand that movement is important and I need to do it more often.
Water- ugh! It's almost 4pm and I have only had like 8oz. of water. What a joke! I used to be so very good at this. I need to get back on track and the only way that is going to happen is by tracking! I need to track it and drink it. The end!
So all this motivation is stemmed from me stepping on that scale. And seeing first hand exactly what I expected... I have packed on the pounds again and its depressing! But I am the only one who can change that. With support I know I can. I am seriously considering weighing in every morning for the next little while. I am normally anti weighing in every day as I understand that your body can change and weigh can fluctuate. But I need that motivation. I need that reminder of "today is a new day- and you are still fat- keep moving". Thoughts? Advice? Do you weigh in every day? Once a week? What do you think about weighing in daily?
