So I joined this team last week and decided to pick Tuesday as my weigh in day. I've always found Monday too stressful so decided to give myself one day to get back on track from a weekend...
I haven't weighed myself in quite some time. I am fairly active and I work with a personal trainer but my nutrition has been terrible - and it is true that nutrition will yield more results than exercise alone. I went through a family thing in March of 2011 and I haven't really been able to get myself back on track.
My trainer has never said anything and I've never blamed him because what I put in my mouth is my responsibility. I could tell my weight was creeping up and everyone said "It's likely muscle because you work with a trainer". I put it to the test - got on their fancy scale and compared the results to my first session with him. The news was not good...my total weight was up by more than I expected, and hardly any of it was muscle, it was fat! I paid a lot for that little bit of muscle too! The final strike was that my water percentage was also down. I ended up crying while doing deadlifts - my trainer didn't know what to do with me at all!! Poor guy.
Anyway, I haven't stepped on a scale since. I know I should, but I don't want the results. I can't help but get frustrated that a while back I was on the right track and I can't seem to find it again. I know how good I used to feel but I can't seem to make it enough to make the effort...
I'm going to be brave tomorrow - even though I may think of it all day today!
