Mirror, Mirror - A 30 day Reflection

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Woke up this morning, stomach looking flatter, feeling lighter…stepped on the scale and what did I see, 3 more lbs.’ looking back at me (okay that was my futile attempt at rapping).

So I stepped back on the scale just to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me and the 3 lbs, were still there. Then I started feeling that way. You know “that way”, the way you feel, when you know, that you know, that you know, you’ve eaten right, exercised and your body hasn’t given you your “props”. Your body didn’t respond like you expected it to. This is usually the point where I tell myself, girl you are FINE as WINE, sharp as NEW MONEY, later for this and go back to doing ME! But not this time, this time my inner man spoke up and said,” Nope, you’re not going to quit on us that easily, check your stats”.

So, I look back at my tracker; calories on point, carbs in line, well surprise, surprise, every day my sodium count as been well over 2200 mg. YICKs!!! There it is there’s my 3 lbs. Hiding behind all that low fat, low cal, low carb processed food. HMMMMM…

So this February, instead of murmuring and complaining about my ADAM, not waking up and finding me (now that’s a BLOG all by itself) I’m going set my intentions on LOVING me like never before.

Stay tuned SP friends.

Peace and Blessings!!!!

    Ugh, you described that feeling perfectly! I think my biggest problem with weight loss is my attitude. This post was motivating. Good for you for not giving up!!

    Thank you for writing this. Boy, do I know "that way”, the way you feel, when you know, that you know, that you know, you’ve eaten right, exercised and your body hasn’t given you your “props”! And usually "that feeling" wrecks my whole day. I love your very sensible way of dealing with the problem. I've learned from you, and I appreciate it! That, and your upbeat attitude!

    And remember that muscle weighs more than fat, soooooo...

Take a moment to think it through
The weight may just be a plus for you.
Don't despair and know how you grew.
That salt will balance in a day of two.

  Awesome research skills! Way to go! Perhaps it will help to also take in more water so that you can run that salt right on out! :)

    Way to go at evaluating what could have went wrong! Also, make sure you're eating enough calories when you're working out! With that being said, make sure it's the right foods as well! Keep your focus! Keep pushing!
