7 pounds and no, this is not a review of the Will Smith movie from eons ago.
I have Monday as my weigh in day. I like to only weigh in once a week. I dont think I could handle it mentally if i did it every day. too many factors that make one fluctuate throughout the day. so i log and plan and exercise and then come Monday wait with baited breath as I step on the scale bright and early all excited to see the number drop. However this Monday threw me into a spin. I get on the scale bring and early Monday...not a big thing. The needle didnt move. hmmm I thought . Well OK. so I took that as a victory because I had not gained anything. I was ok with that. I really was! No gain and but I knew I had done what I needed to do. change would come in the future.
So, off to work I go following my 2 mile walk with the dog and eating my oatmeal in the car for my 1 hour commute. I got to the office and thought 'im going to weigh myself here just in case my scale is wacked' yea, still a bit bothered i reckon the number didnt go down. So, i hop on the office digital scale and short of calling a code and shaking my head to clear my vision I stood shocked trying to process that the scale had me 7 pounds more than the scale at home. I thought 'wait, this cant be right'....i hop off and on again. yep. 7 pounds. I hopped on and off once more (just to make sure). yep there it was in bright red digital numerics. I had to sit down to process that in my head. How can 7 pounds have such a profound effect on my psyche. well it did. i pondered that for the rest of the day and into the evening and way past into the next work day.
I cant let this trip me up. Time to let it go...and get rid of that excess. I am not going to let this small bump derail me. Time to rework the mini goals ...I so got this!
