I Gained a Pound and What I Did About It

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So, scale phobic that I am I kept an earlier promise and hopped on the scale this morning. There were PEOPLE in the gym and I had to disrobe and stand there in my bathing suit and weigh myself in front of strangers. Good times.
Well, it might have been if I hadn't gained a pound. CRAP.

Time for the Come to Jesus Meeting with myself.

I am doing really well in so many ways. The Fitbit is a game changer for me- but truth be told I am still too sedentary. I need to eat more vegetables and less fat. i track and am honest with myself but it"s time to step up my game.

I sulked for 10 seconds, sighed deeply and put my face on. Then I headed to MOA and walked until I hit 10,000 steps. I had a break with an iced coffee and hummus bistro box from Starbucks (260 cal and yummy) and then I journaled.

I refuse to quit. I know what I want and I'm willing to work hard to get it. Each day, small victories and good choices and at some point the damn scale will move.

I also downloaded the podcasts from Sparkfriends Karen and Lilly. Thanks girls- you rock.

So losing weight is HARD, booo flippin hooo. I want it and obstacles are merely challenges to bulldoze through.

Subtlety has never been my strong point.

Spark on!
