Another snowy day here in Freddy Beach! Yesterday was tough because a day that I knew was on the horizon arrived. I stepped on the scale and it hadn't moved. Like I said, I knew that it had to happen some day. There was no way I would be able to keep up a 0.5lb loss everyday, but it was still hard and a little discouraging.
I'm proud of myself though because in the past, no loss would have meant failure and I would have eaten a ton of junk because what did it matter anyway? Instead, yesterday, I stuck to my plan, worked out, ate well, and this morning I was down 0.5!
I know there are going to be more days like tomorrow than there will be days with loss. It's something I've come to accept because I do weigh myself everyday (it's the only thing that keeps me on track). But seeing that staying on track will keep producing change is such a huge motivator!
I've contacted the health and fitness advisor here at work, and am meeting with her next week (she wants a detailed food and exercise diary of the next 7 days so she can analyze it). She's going to be able to give me feedback on how everything is going, and what I can change to make it work better. I'm kicking myself for not taking advantage of a free nutritionist and trainer in the past here at work, but I took the first step and I really look forward to meeting with her.
Oh! One last thing I have started doing that seems to be making a pretty big impact on my physical activity: I walk up 3 floors in my office building to use the bathroom on another level every time I need to pee. I drink a ton of water, so I do this probably like 4-5 times a day. I still get a little winded, and I'm sure my co-workers think I'm nuts, but it's such an easy way to get some exercise in during working hours where all I do is sit!
Hope everyone else out there has an awesome day!
