Feeling a bit frustrated

Sunday, September 09, 2012

Today was my weigh in day. I had hoped to lose weight again. Last week was the first week in a long time that I had lost weight.

So I step on the scale and **BAM** an almost 2 pound weight gain. grrrrrr

It typically is very hard for me to lose weight. Always has been. I have to work VERY hard for every little ounce.

This past week I did miss a few days of exercising due to a hectic back to school and scouting week.

Once thing I have noticed is that when I don't exercise consistently my resolve for healthy eating is also weakened. But what is even worse is that when my stress is up, I run for the junk food. This week my stress was up and I consumed foods I would normally not touch with a 10 foot pole.

Oh well, back to the plan. I am not going to let this deter me. And I recognize it was my own doing due to my less than stellar food choices.

I have found that watching YouTube videos of my goals helps to keep me motivated.

I am determined that next year I will be participating in the 5K Foam Run, Down and Dirty mud run and the Tough and Dirty mud run.

    Hang in there.

    I know how you feel.. I have not weighed in for awhile as I was so disappointed, but then I decided to go by how my clothes fit and not what I weigh. Remember, as you gain muscle you may gain weight, but lose fat. It happened to me.

    My weight also increased but I cheered up again when I saw I have losses at inches measurements :D So, if you see your scale doesn't budge or increasing, double-check with your measurement tape :D
