I have a tendency to see things as black and white. Weight loss is the same. Everyone says its a numbers game. Okay, then I will play by the numbers rule and I will "win", right? Not so much.
This week I EARNED a 2 pound loss. It was MINE!! Yet I came up short.
I did lose 1.5lb so yes I am trying real hard to see the glass is half full.
But in the past, if I didn't hit a number I wanted, I could justify it. I could look back and see where I either went wrong or where I could have done more or made better choices.
Not this week. No! This was a 2 pound loss week! period!!! I am throwing a temper tantrum over a measly .5 lb and I realize the stupidity in it but I need to just vent this out!
I ask myself what could I have done different. Answer: not one stinking thing! I killed it this week in cardio. I did awesome in my strength training, I tracked everything. I ate my fruits and veggies, you name it, I was the poster child for healthy living!!!
I am just PRAYING that there was something,anything, that I can't put my finger on that will change this week.
Something that I know that has me down is, earlier in the week I weighed. I know for me it is NOT a good thing. no no no no!!! I know better. I was all excited because it had showed the 1.5 loss and so I thought "awesome!!!" I am going to really go at it extra hard to set myself up for an awesome weigh in! ugh! The same exact weight!
Okay, new week, I have spewed out all the negativity that I needed to and I am now back to looking forward to the week ahead!
And no, there weren't inches lost so don't even try to go there! lol!!
I sure hope it all goes great for you this week.
Here's to a new week!!
