Wow... Shock and awe... I mean, I have counted calories and worked out in the past but never have I lost 4 pounds in a week!! That kind of thing just doesn't happen to me!
Even though I am surprised, I know what the difference is. In the past, I would work out really hard, but slack off when it came to my diet... OR I would be very strict as to what I ate and didn't work out hard. I always tried my best to do both and at times, I was physically unable to be active so I can't be blamed for that, BUT - when you put sincere efforts into both eating right and being active... freakin' magic happens!
Also, I was always very anti-scale. I HATE weighing myself with a passion that burns as hot as the core of the earth. However, I have come to accept the number on the scale and it doesn't make me depressed, angry or self-loathing when I see it. Because of this, I weighed myself every day this week. It seemed to motivate me, especially since the number creeped downward every day. I just hope that a creep upwards (which is absolutely inevitable) won't be too discouraging.
So here's to another great week of intense workouts, fabulous & healthy food and even more weight loss!
On a more personal note, I have a date tonight for coffee with a very charming and handsome guy (tall, too!). I am not overly nervous but I'm sincerely hoping it goes well. I feel like most things in my life are in order and it would be nice to have someone to share it with :)
