A loss??!? Really??

Friday, September 21, 2012

Ok, so I cheated this morning....

Saturday is supposed to be my weigh-in day, but after a bad weekend last weekend, and a few evenings of unplanned snacking, I really didn't have any idea what the scale was going to say. I thought maybe I'd be ok, since the past couple of days I'd started to notice some loosening of my pants in the thighs.

So this morning I just couldn't wait to peek. And I'm down 4 POUNDS!!!! [Insert shock and reweighing a couple times to be sure!]


It's so easy to get tunnel vision and only focus on the less-good choices and assume that's the only thing that matters. Never mind the 6 meals before that over the past 2 days that were well within calorie/fat/carb ranges. Or get hyper focused on the 2 days that I was so swamped at work I didn't get to exercise and completely ignore the fact that on 5 of the days I did at LEAST 10 min of cardio, on 3 of those days did strength training, and on one of those days I did an HOUR of

I don't want to get myopic about any of this journey. Each choice matters, but once it's made it's done and doesn't need to be dwelled upon unmercilessly. Poor choices only need to be considered to help avoid repeating it, but what's done is done, and I just need to let it go!

So, I may not weigh in tomorrow. We'll see.
