Ok, we all know that the day before a weigh is the most ackward of all. We question each moment, we worry uncontrolably, we panic, we get the what if's....this week is no different for me then any other. I stuck to plan, I exercised over and above some days and right on others. I ate what I was suppose to and even the occasional treat was within my limits. today is the day before a new week with ww and I still have 16 free points and all ap points. So i've done an awesome job. I also know that if I don't eat all my free points I don't tend to lose, and that has me a bit worried. It wasn't like I didn't try I just haven't been hungry like normal. which is kinda weird because this is my pms week and that also has me a bit worried. The water weight.
So i'm not going to judge my week by the scales. I wonder sometimes why I worry so much what others will think of my weigh ins to be honest if I didn't say anything about them who would know but me. It is the accountabiltiy that keeps me honest though. That is what we all need to make each day become a week and each week a month. If we didn't have to be accountable to anyone we could slip and slide all the time and who would be the wiser? We would that is who. We are here for us, for our own goals and happiness. OUr own reasons to want to lose and each of us has to be willing to take good with bad and so on.
So I say i'm not going to let the scales be the judge of my week but will I? My friends know they still will be. I'll still rant and rave at them, kick them, and then I'll buck up, regroup, and begin again. Afterall that is what this journey is all about, beginning again. It doesn't end with a week, month, or even a year, this is lifetime. So really we have all the time in the world to reach our goals, right? Wrong. If I thought like that I would still be at the beginning. We don't have time limits to lose but we should be wanting to move on from this stage one, the weight loss, into stage two, the maintenance. After all that is where the real work will begin.
So as I leave you i'm heading off to begin my day. That means at least 30-40 or more minutes of cardio first thing. I also do the exercise of the day for my Alabama team and this week is abs so i'm off for the last day of that this morning. Gotta have six pack abs you know. I may not always feel like exercising but if I tell myself 20 min. it usually leads to about 60 minutes or it has been know to be more. Once i'm moving I keep saying "you can do 10 more minutes". Give it a try.
