I know it's just a number but ...

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

So, I gained two pounds last night. And I know y'all are going to tell me that it's just water weight and I know you guys must be right because I have been sticking to 1650 calories the last few days and I did some great workouts and almost every meal I've had in the last few days was a salad (vegetable based), so really, it is not physically possible to gain fat unless I have some rare disease but seriously - I can't help it - it bothers me.

See, for some people gaining a pound or two is the inspiration they need. "I really have to watch out now." or "I need to do better!" but for me, seeing a higher weight on the scale is soul crushing, spirit destroying business. If I see a lower number on the scale my brain goes "Yes! You are awesome! WE ARE DOING THIS!", when I see a higher weight on the scale my brain says "Seriously, why am I even doing this? So much hard work for nothing.".

So, this is where I am at right now, trying to ignore the little nag that tells me to go get some ice cream.

Also my heel tendonitis has been terrible. I have a consultation with the physio therapist at my gym today and I hope he or she can give me some good tips, other than "Operation", "Advil" or "Taking a break from working out". Because these are all not viable options for me.

    I know, it's so annoying, right? Why are our bodies doing this to us?

    WOw....I so get where you're coming from. I've been so perfectly behaved and last week went up 2lbs, dropped .4 today and am fighting for the rest. How? Why? I have no idea. Hang in there and keep on keeping on. You're still fantastic and you ARE doing this. Something's gotta crack, I always say. Oh and sorry about your foot. Sounds painful!
