Well, that was easy!

Monday, November 19, 2012

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 :)

    Thanks for the lovely comment on my spark page! I think you have a great attitude and your're off to a fantastic start! It sounds like you are starting a better relationship with the scale - just don't let it control you and like you said, try not to beat yourself up if it goes up sometimes throughout your journey. I'm so excited about your date! I want to hear how it goes! Keep it up! Your combined efforts will pay off... which reminds me - I gotta get my nutrition under control! Eek! :P
