The Witch!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

The body is a strange thing.

Over the past week, I've done a lot of great things for my health. I've done well with tracking my food, eating veggies, drinking water. I've worked out.

Yet, my body didn't get the notice that it was supposed to reduce the number of pounds on the scale.

Now, I've been down this road before, so I know that if I keep doing what I'm doing, it WILL come off, but that is NOT what I wanted to see on my scale this morning.

How on earth does a person gain multiple pounds by doing the right things? Well, it could have to do with the amount of sodium I've had or that my body is trying to hold on to all of its calories thinking I won't feed it everything it sees anymore. But, mostly it is probably due to Aunt Flo, the witch! She'll be gone soon enough and so will those pounds

    You just reminded me of my kitchen sink. (not sure why but...)

    My kitchen sink leaks every night. And when I wake up I often find myself saying I can't believe that water leaked all night and the sink didn't overflow. The answer to this mystery, I checked on it too soon. If I wait a little longer oh ya that sink will be leaking all over the floor.

    That is my advice to you I guess. Don't be too quick to check the kitchen sink. Just keep letting those good habits drip and soon enough the pounds will be dripping off of you.

    emoticon Try not to focus too much on your scale. You are doing all the correct things. The scale sometimes has a mind of its own. Try to look for non scale victories instead!

    I can totally relate to the scale issue, but I LOVE your attitude toward it! I always tell myself that if I'm making good choices -- eating right, exercising -- that my body will catch on eventually and the pounds will drop. It's just about not getting too frustrated in the moment and keeping on track! You've got this =)
