Wow - that little ticker sure is a motivator!!
Sunday, January 06, 2013
I have to say that yesterday was a hard day for me and I don't know why. I have been doing good all week; yesterday was good too. Had a great workout and ate healthy. But as the day went on, I was just feeling more and more blah. Started getting down on myself, started getting negative. Looked in the mirror and all I could see was giant belly fat.
Sundays are my check-in days. I rely on my measurements now, but I still step on the scale as well. It works for me, since I can see that I'm losing inches even if the scale doesn't move. I changed my ticker from pounds lost to inches lost. It was a good check in! I've lost 4.5 inches and I've lost a pound! My ticker has moved! WOOT!
That's great news, right? But I still feel down and I'm trying to pinpoint why. It's not because I expected to lose more. It's not because I didn't lose as much. It's not because I expect miraculous results.
Hmm.... I think it's because it's such hard work for so little. I know the weight didn't appear overnight and I'm not going to get rid of it overnight. But I busted my *** this week at the gym. Maybe I did expect more. But I've also realized this weekend that I've still got work to do with improving my eating habits, especially lunch.
Was planning to take a day off today and enjoy a lazy Sunday, but that ticker of mine has motivated me to get in a quick workout! Just have to keep going.
