Work has been mad crazy this week and while I typically like to post my weigh-in results on my weigh-days (Wednesdays), I just didnít get around to it this week. Itís Friday now and I have a little more time to devote to my SP blog.
Although I usually LOVE Wednesday weigh-ins, this past Wednesday, I was feeling just a bit apprehensive and worried when I got up. There was just a moment of hesitation before closing my eyes and getting on the scale. For that brief moment, I ran through my head everything I ate and drank the night before when hubby and I went out partying with friends.
I know, I know, I can hear you all now, ďYOU WENT OUT PARTYING THE NIGHT BEFORE A WEIGH-IN DAY?Ē OY VEY!!!
Our friends had some friends in from out of town and they wanted to party. What could I say? Certainly not, ďOh I canít, I have a weigh-in tomorrowĒ. SERIOUSLY??? If you thought that, then you donít know me very well. You see, as much as I really want to lose weight and as much as I am committed to my program, I refuse to miss out on life and good times because IíM ON A DIET! NOT A CHANCE!
So, for a brief moment, I prepared myself for what I may see on the scale when I opened my eyes.
Needless to say, I was rather shocked! Although I didnít lose any weight from last week, I didnít gain any either. Having said that though, itís rather odd that it is the exact same weight as last week Ė not an ounce higher or lower. HmmmÖ..
Having to post a zero loss on the Sisters in Sweat Biggest Loser post was really embarrassing. I feel like such a loser (and not in a good way) when Iím the lowest loser of the week. Itís hard not to get discouraged when there are others losing 10lbs and more. Thank God those moments donít last long.
So, I continue to work on my program by eating healthy and staying within my nutritional goals and getting out everyday and exercising. On that note, I didnít get to exercise as much this morning as I typically do.
A couple of weeks ago, I started incorporating some jogging in my morning walk. This morning, I was so sore (and still am) it took every ounce of energy and strength I had just to walk my three fur babies, definitely no energy for jogging. I had to take some advil when I got back because I am so sore. Iíve been dragging my @$$ ever since getting back from yesterdayís walk/jog.
One part of me is thinking that I would like to take it easy this weekend but the other part of me is thinking Iím just being a woosie and I just need to work through the pain. Weíll see how I feel tomorrow.
Well, I have to get back to work now. Have a great weekend fellow sparkers and remember to take care of yourselves.
