I could go into the myriad of reasons (aka excuses) why my weight is going in the wrong direction on the scale. But I won't. And it feels so much better not to.
It also feels good to know that for the past three days I have gotten out of bed in the wee hours of the am and gone to the gym. And, although I wasn't completely thrilled about my inability to make it the full 40 minutes yesterday, I am completely proud of myself for being there and putting in 100% effort at that moment.
It's hard to see the scale read 183 - up three pounds from my starting weight almost 2 years ago - but its even harder to forgive myself and start again. I do forgive myself though.
I forgive myself and I give myself permission to try again.
So, I will take this setback in stride. I will work each day to give 100% effort. Some days that means I'll reach my goals (8 cups of water, 50 mins of cardio) and other days 100% won't make me reach my goal - but it will make me satisfied with my efforts.
