2 steps forward 1 step back

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Last week for my weigh in, I was down 2 pounds from the previous weigh in.

Today, I was up a pound. I am not freaking out or getting discouraged. I am taking this opportunity to look back and think of my choices last week.

Maybe I was not as careful as I thought I was about the restaurant, or maybe I should have turned down the ice cream in the middle of the week. I need to learn that right now I should stay away from the mind frame of "I did good so this one thing wont hurt me, or make to much of a difference." It can if I am not careful.

Maybe I am not pushing myself enough with my excercising. I know my limits and maybe I am not taking the extra step to push a little extra each time so that I can increase my limits instead of staying limited.

Either way, my one pound gain will not stop me in my tracks. If I have learned nothing else from my life experiences so far, I have learned that my set backs have never been permanent. I can get back up and move forward, and be farther than I was before.

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” ~Mike Murdock

My daily change for this week -- Do just 5 extra mins each excercise.

    You are sounding really positive, and that is a good sign. Keep your eyes open for the other signs, they are just as encouraging.

    Do the one step forward, two steps back and call it the "Cha-Cha". Add in more walking everyday and skip the ice cream. Are you using your food and nutrition trackers honestly? Because if you are, the weight on the scale won't matter nearly as much as the NSV's you'll begin to see and feel. You're doing fine! Have a great week!

    Incremental small pushes are ok as long as your body can handle it.

Why is "food" anything BUT nutrition for the body? We have been duped into a belief system to make ourselves fat and feel deprived just because we don't reward ourselves with high fat/high sugar non-nutritional "treats". I say just give me the trick and I'll be happy. LOL

1 lb is nothing to worry about hon.
