Keeping At It

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Despite being preoccupied with the flood situation I have managed to keep up my exercise plan of 20-30 min cardio on the the stationary bike and 15-20 min of strength training with my band. My diet, on the other hand, has suffered a bit the past two days, unfortunately. And this morning I was disappointed with the number on the scale.

I've decided not to let it get me down, though. I just need to keep at it. Rome wasn't built in a day right? It is only a very small set-back, no reason to beat myself up or let it derail me. Also, as I know very well there will always be fluctuations from day to day on the scale and they don't necessarily mean much.

My main focus for now is on meeting my exercise goals, not on the number on the scale. So I'm reminding myself of that and trying to keep that as my biggest priority.

    I always find that a down week (and buy down I mean the very opposite for the scale) gives me motivation to keep pushing forward. It allows me to make some modifications to my weight loss program and I think sticking with your fitness and exercise goals will keep you headed in the right direction. You know... sometimes when the scale doesnt budge, or even goes up, the inches go down. Are you measuring? If not you might want to try that so on the weeks weight isn't lost the inches might be and you can celebrate that! emoticon emoticon
