So disappointed this morning. I stepped on the scales for the first time in a couple of weeks and it's not where I had hopped the scale needle would be. In fact, it's gone up! I've been working so hard at watching what I eat, I've been getting much more exercise than I had been...so what's the problem??? Okay, time to re-evaluate. Let's see what could possibly have caused this upset.
Hmmmm...trouble sleeping last night, in fact only got about 4 hours of actually sleeping, the rest of the time was spent tossing and turning, dosing and then waking up...a usual occurrence on a Sunday night as my body gears up for an early rise on Monday morning...perhaps I need to weigh on a different day. Maybe going back to weighing in on a Friday morning after a weeks adjustment to 4:30 am rising. Weekends ...I don't always get the usual amount of water into me...possible culprit..water retention. Again...maybe not being as accurate in portion sizes and calorie counts on weekends...well whatever the reason, it is what it is and I will move forward with it and not allow the scale to dictate my day. Instead I will use it as a catalyst to being more diligent.
I get to burn calories once again this morning as I shovel snow...great way to start ones day...with exercise.
I will be more diligent with my nutrition.
I had a lovely weekend of not having to be anywhere.
I am aware of changes that I need to make and I will make them.
I have an action plan.
Have an awesome day, be your own best friend...give yourself tough love and get moving!
