Positive Self Talk - Spark Coach Challenge

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Today Spark Coach challenged me to talk positively to myself. That isn't always easy. Especially when I got on the scale today and weighed in at 139.4. I have been 138(ish) the last few weeks.

NOw, the logical part of me knows that it is from eating ham a few times a day for the last three days. The logical part of me knows that maybe I ate a little too much beef jerky. The logical part of me knows that I did ST yesterday and my muscles are sore. I don't always think with my logical part. I was pretty bummed out.

I made myself feel better by going to Buckle and picking up my jeans (size 27 - fit perfect) and by visiting the Tea Merchant and buying some Pineapple Upside Down Cake tea.

I reminded myself of how much I have accomplished and a few pounds of water weight is no big deal. I also decided in the back of my mind to go ahead and purchase the fancy bathroom scale that allows me to get a full body analysis. Of course, part of me is afraid to use that scale because it might not read the same as the scale I have? What if it makes me weigh more??

In reality, the IMPORTANT thing is my inches. When it all comes down to it, not matter what number is on the scale, the inches are the numbers that matter the most. I can't help I am so obsessed with numbers.

When I pre-ordered The Spark Solution, I received two of Coach Nicole's Workout Videos. I gave Cardio Blast a try out today. I liked the workout. It wasn't overly difficult physically, but the coordination needed is the hard part. Stepping here, jumping there... it is all just too much for me to wrap my head around. Plus, trying to do squat thrusts and mountain climbers on carpet with socks on isn't exactly easy. Plus, I had a cat trying to lick the sweat off of my face... *sigh* Don't get me wrong, I liked the workout, but maybe not in the middle of my living room? When it comes to bootcamp type things, I should stick with the gym. Not to mention, I wore a pair of shorty short yoga shorts and my thighs were clapping me on as I did jumping jacks!

All in all... it is an alright day. I am looking forward to Support Group tomorrow night. The Psychologist is coming in to talk to us. I think it will be informative and helpful!

    I ate a ton of ham on Saturday and some on Sunday. I had a 3.6 pound drop on the scale from Monday to Tuesday. So I am really confident you are seeing the same thing due to ham. Evil, sodium-filled ham, lol!

    But seriously, I was bummed about the scale too even though I had lost 3.25 inches this past month. It's hard to not focus on it when you know you are working so hard! But it sounds like you are doing great! Congrats on the new jeans!
