Relieved and Ready for More
Saturday, October 13, 2018
I was terrified of the scale this morning. I think I stayed in bed for a long time just dreading my weigh-in. For the past three days, I had been in one of those work/mom/wife/cooking/housewor
k time crunches and had no time to fit exercise in. To make it worse, my co-workers sponsored a Milwaukee Brewers tailgate lunch yesterday, which meant lots of rich foods. To make it even worse, my family went to a buffet restaurant for dinner.
I lay in bed this morning, talking myself down. It's okay. You'll do better next week. Tracking is the 5% skill this time. Just stick to it, plan your exercise, and take a deep breath. You're going to be fine.
I gathered my courage and weighed in. Hallelujah! Only a .2 gain from last week. I am flooded with relief and will definitely learn my lesson. I want to wake up next Saturday feeling good about my decisions for the week.
