Found my motivation! (for today)

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Wow! So, yesterday I was struggling with the motivation...having a hard time getting started, etc...But I DID eat an almost perfect diet (per guidelines provided-just a little low on fiber) AND got a workout in.
Then, this morning, the scale showed a 2+ lb LOSS! Honestly, I weighed 3 times to make sure it wasn't a fluke (occassionally my scale messes with me because it hates me). I hopped off and got straight to a work out. Then I had a small breakfast with some extra B vitamin suppliment. Went a little crazy with lunch at Applebees, but still have room calorie-wise for a sensible, small dinner.
AND I got in 2 more workouts for a total of 105 minutes today working out! I've burned 300 more calories than my goal for the week...and I've got 3 days left!
Funny...you would think seeing an increase on the scale would motivate me- but it always bums me out and makes me feel like giving up. Seeing a good loss today really helped. Or maybe it was the B vitamins...or a combination of both. Either way, I hope to repeat the formula tomorrow! Probably won't weigh in, but will start the day with a workout and vitamins/breakfast and eat sensibly. Hope to see a great loss on Sunday! (official weigh in day)
