OK, I'll admit, I'm a bit frustrated. I went to the gym five days this week (5 cardio added with two day of strength training.) I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for more.
There are two things that come into play. Last night I ate shellfish - dumb decision the night before I weigh in. Shellfish makes me swell. I know this, but it was good anyway and totally fit in my plan. The other, I just found out that I may not be eating enough - such an odd concept for me to grasp. I've stayed in my numbers, but didn't have all my work outs scheduled so working out more I have to eat more to lose more. Just sounds wrong even saying it, but I'll give it a shot.
Now for a reality check:
I lost weight!
It's 1 pound - in the right direction: DOWN!
I am able to stay on the elliptical longer than I ever have over the last week!
I feel better about myself!
Those are my big wins for the week and with that I will leave you with this beauty I picked up somewhere along the way:
Hello, do you know me? If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat, and I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me; I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one. So I just stick around and happly keep you fat. Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it. That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight. Yes, its fun beig ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
So when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh I only lost one pound."
(As if that were such a terrible thing.)
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
and I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!
Onward we go...
