This morning, my son and I are making sock puppets! I have always wanted an excuse to make sock puppets; I guess my parents didn't see the practicality of that. Actually, they didn't do arts and crafts; kids these days are so lucky! We even have a stage. Mwa ha.
Later, I have an upper body training session, so I have to eat enough for that. (This damn cold is kicking my butt on the eating front.) The gym manager finally got a measuring tape! Without knowing numbers, I guess I am trimming down because people are noticing that I am losing weight. I have no idea from where because I look the same.
However, my jeans are fitting better, which is good and bad because I haven't figured out how to make more notches on the belt. (
It's not quite that dramatic, but I think the icon is hilarious!)
I think the problem is that when we lose weight we have some fantasy version of ourselves (that is ridiculous), and we don't see ourselves turning into that, so we think, "Damn. I'm not losing enough weight." That's why I like the attitude of having other goals, and recently (because of the stress and the cold), I have been leaning towards having nutrient goals in the food I eat. I am not sure what that would entail, but that makes sense.
I also have not stepped on the scale and continue to focus on doing sit ups every day or something new and challenging. But, the truth is, that I like my work outs, and I like getting on the bike every morning. (Now, if only I could channel that energy into cleaning the house and being more organized. That's my other, other goal. I'm a spatial moron.)
