I was not exactly thrilled to be stepping on the scale this morning. Last week, I was excited to step on the scale because I knew I’d had a great week, eating well and exercising. This week… uhhhh, not so much. Not that I totally fell off the wagon, but I know it wasn’t AS good of a week for me.
I was actually pleasantly surprised to see a loss on the scale, though. Not much of a loss… 0.4 lbs. But I’ll definitely take it!! Puts me at a total loss of 3.6 lbs for the last 2 weeks. As long as the numbers aren’t going UP, I’m pretty happy.
So, where did I go wrong last week? Well… I started to get hungry mid-week. Hungry for something other than salad and fruit and bagel thins!! Still, I didn’t totally pig out (luckily, there’s not much “pigging out” food in my kitchen at the moment!)… but I did have Papa John’s for dinner Monday night. And, I have to tell you that it was the BEST pizza I’ve ever eaten in my life. I knew I shouldn’t be eating it, but I did… and I enjoyed each and every bite!
And, I never did the Bootcamp W2D1 workout, either. I couldn’t fit it in Monday, so I said I was going to do it yesterday. And, ummm, that never happened either. By last night, I was feeling ridiculously guilty about this one missed workout! So, today, come hell or high water, I AM doing the W2D2 workout and getting back on track.
It would be so easy right now to just throw in the towel and say I’m done. But I know I’ll never forgive myself if I do that. It takes a lot just to decide to get STARTED with this fitness stuff. If I quit now, Lord only knows when I’ll be ready, mentally, to start it up again. So, I’m just going to chalk off the last week as “not my best” and move on!
