So today was my Weigh-in day test. The scale hasn't gone down. It hasn't gone up in 2 weeks, but, it's gone up a bit since last month. It's pretty discouraging. So I am going to put the scale away for a bit. Atleast another couple weeks or so. Maybe even until June. I know I am still getting smaller by how my clothes fit and my body feels. I also now know that the scale isn't the greatest thing for me right now. I swear after I weighed I looked at myself differently. Which is crazy cause I tried to prepare myself for it. I may make my weigh-in the day after TOM every month. Cause I know I fluctuate so much in the week before. About 3-4 lbs for sure. So I think my next weigh-in will be that time next month. I can't let this discourage me from working out. I know Im building muscle and that I will start losing in the next few weeks or so. I just cant be discouraged. So I am saying good bye to the scale for awhile. I am eating good and working out. I feel good so that will be my tool for now. I would love to see a huge change next month on the scale, but, I wont get my hopes up. I think this is one of those plateaus I hear so much about. I have been fluctuating from 138 to 143 for about 3 months. I did really start ST in April though. April 8th actually. So I have just hit my 30 day mark. I'm hoping this is what I needed to get past where I'm at. Just have to be patient about it....
So my goals are:
Really focus on what food Im eating and my nutrient intake. Cleaner eating...
Drinking a lot of water.
Continue to push myself with my ST.
Try to get in atleast 3 walks a week or more. Preferably more..
