I keep having to regroup. Last few days have not been good for, well, much of anything. But even with the regrouping, I am making progress. I have to remind myself that I have lost weight, that it is moments like this that determine my success. I had hope that I'd be finding out that I'm pregnant in the next few days. But based on my temperature this morning, I'm guessing that is not the case. Looks like I'll like be below cover line tomorrow and on to the next cycle. Reminding myself that means I have another 2.5 weeks to focus on weight loss and fitness. If I work hard, I can drop below 180.
My birthday is next Friday and I want to be feeling good -- and I won't be if I continue to eat poorly and let emotions win. I'm still without a scale (perhaps with my newfound motivation I need to actually drive out to Mom and Dad's and pick up the one they are giving me . . . they've had a scale in their guest bathroom that has had a dead battery for years -- figured that was a good sign they didn't need it! They have a working one in the master bathroom.).
Today I WILL eat within my calorie range, drink 10 glasses of water, and get in at least 20 minutes of exercise.
