A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties." Harry S. Truman
Yesterday the scale was up three pounds . I looked and looked at the darn thing but nothing changed. Maybe it will today maybe it won't .
The pessimist in me stared and said you have got to be kidding. Why ,Why, does this always happen to me. Why can't I be a toothpick .I give up here is my white flag. Do you see my white flag scale Gods. I don't care anymore .I am off to go eat a bag of chips and then maybe a donut so there.
Then I turned around and the Optimist in me smiled. I thought about what i had eaten all week and what I had exercised and how little I slept. These all added to my problem. Plus I knew that some of it was water weight.
Three pounds is a lot ha ha the pessimist said.!!! You can't fix that give up!!!
Three pounds is nothing the optimist said.!!! Sush!!! Plus I have a plan. This week I will drink more water, eat more veggies and less meat. I will make sure I get enough sleep .I will continue with the strength training because I am adding muscle and although it is adding to my weight gain in the long run it will help me to burn more calories and look thinner and toner. I will not walk like a slug but a women of purpose and maybe even swing my arms a bit. Lastly I will let nature take its course.
I am so glad I am an optimist if your not now you should work on it I see happiness and success on the way .What do you see? Hugs Thanks so much for reading my blogs.
