Pouting does not count as exercise
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
I have to admit that I have been having a pout the last few days. My scale is not reflecting the work I feel I am doing and I don't like it. I was a good girl and did my 28 day boot camp workouts, but still the scale was stuck. So what have I done?
Saturday night I went out to dinner for my birthday. I didn't go hog wild, but I did eat over my daily range. And it was so yummy. Then I went to my mom's for Sunday dinner and ate too much and didn't care. Jeff and I had agreed to a weekend off.
I haven't worked out since the last weigh in. Why bother since I was doing better with the scale before I started?
I haven't checked in with my SparkTeams. Why not? Because I didn't want to hear about someone with good news that was doing what they were supposed to, working out and losing weight.
So where has it gotten me? Well, I gained a pound at my biggest loser weigh in and had to pay $1. I have probably lost a lot of the progress I was making with my workouts, and I kind of feel like I have let Coach Nicole down a little bit. The pouting really isn't making me feel any better. And as for my Teams, they would probably have been a great support and gotten me out of my slump faster.
I did do some things right. I still tracked my food and know what I ate. Other than the weekend I am still in my range and drinking my water. I still logged in and got my points. I didn't completely give up.
So......it's time to stop pouting and go back to doing my best, despite the scale. I must admit, I kind of enjoyed not working out because it hurts and I don't like to sweat or breath heavy, but I know that I need to be stronger so I can do more, walk further, shop longer, and be more confident.
I just hope my scale will be kinder in the future. I can't promise I will never pout again!
