Bad Day Overturned
Saturday, June 02, 2012
So I get on the scale today and it says I've gained several pounds. I know that's not right. No way. I've only been on antibiotics for 24 hours and I've had kidney/bladder issues long enough to know that I pack on water weight in the beginning until the meds take hold and then it goes back down.
I have done so well the last few weeks - eating healthy and still doing some type of cardio every day. That gain just felt like a major blow.
We went to a graduation party and what did I do? I ate my feelings. Honestly, I didn't eat as many "feelings" as I could have though. I didn't eat the way I used to. The damage could have been much, much worse.
I came home and got the notice from Habit Forge that I needed to do my walk/cardio for the day. I was ready to say forget it. Then I saw that I've had a streak going for 14 days. 14! If I miss a day, it will start me back to day 1. I'm so close to my 21 day goal. I decided I would try a walk.
Let me tell you, the weather was not looking good. You could see the rain coming over the mountains and the winds were crazy, but... I did it.
Just getting out there with that wind whipping and the storm coming closer, energized me somehow. I felt good. Probably because any one of the factors I listed above would have been enough to make me give up for the day, but I didn't let it. I did it.
I've decided to move my weigh in to Monday and give the meds a chance to work and get to a real count. Otherwise, I may just skip this week and weigh in next Saturday.
Onward we go...
