Attitude Adjustment Day...day 37
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
What a trip! One day I'm super happy about my progress, the next day I've convinced myself that I will never be any different than I already am. These ups and downs will calm down a little eventually, right?
I worked out really hard over the weekend, especially on the treadmill. I was going faster than I normally go and using different incline programs. I think I over did it on the incline. My back, which I hurt a decade ago this month, did not like something I did when working out, and I've been super sore for the past few days. But I know I can do more than I am doing, I just have to figure out how to push myself safely and in the right order of exercises.
The scale is an evil, evil thing! I have known since my first WW meeting years ago that when you are losing weight you should only weigh yourself once a week, but I can't seem to stick to that. I was so frustrated last night because I gained weight again. I really am not cheating, not hoarding or binging. The only problem I can see when I look at my food tracker is that I'm not eating enough, but is that possible? I'm not hungry during the day, I'm not depriving myself, but I am not sure how to fit in any more food into my day. The only option is more for breakfast, but I usually just bring breakfast to work and eat before my day gets really busy.
I'm going to finish out this week like I have been doing, weigh in on Sunday and see how I am doing. My promise to myself is not to get on the scale until Sunday. And my victory today was that when I wanted a bag of chips and a soda, instead of getting them, I reached out to my support system and they talked me down. So that was a victory.
Now back to homework and then the gym. Have a great night everyone!
