When I weighed in Monday I was ticked. I went sugar free. I did my ab challenge. I worked out when it was inconvenient. All of this in an effort to push past this weight plateau and what was my result? I HAD GAINED. It wasn’t much weight but it WAS defeating.
I started pouting, cursed every stinking sit up and then I just stopped doing them. I let myself stay up late and even indulged in some treats. Why should I work so hard if I wasn’t getting results? I’ve been stuck at this dagnabit weight for
weeks months. Why try?
Funny thing is none of the treats were as good as I expected. I was craving fruits. Then yesterday afternoon I felt….gross.
What fun are treats that aren’t that good and feeling awful? None.
Didn’t significantly gain or lose as a result of my week of pouting but I learned/reminded myself there is more to these lifestyle changes I am making than just what that darn scale reports.
Here’s to a week of working hard and trying not to focus on what the scale may or may not report next week.
Wish me luck!
