Is it possible for the week to go by fast and slow at the same time? Part of my is like… wow it’s Wednsday already and the other part of me feels like we haven’t weighed-in in forever.
Anyway, I have to make this one super quick. I’m on my way out the door to squish in a run before Ryan wakes up for school. Now that I have more of a deadline in the morning I’m all thrown off. Plus, my gym is closed this week so I’m missing my regular 5:30AM workouts on Tuesday and Thursdays and my yoga today, and that’s not helping my motivation at the moment.
I don’t have time to respond to lots of comments like I did last week BUT I did want to address 2 things.
- Someone asked if it’s too late to join in the weigh in and my answer is OF COURSE NOT! Hop on in. This is just a simple way to keep yourself accountable on the scale IF you find that it’s something which motivates you.
- We had about 80 less people weigh in last week from the week before. Now… if you decided that weighing in is not for you, cool, I totally get it BUT if you are avoiding the scale or not holding yourself accountable then it’s unacceptable. Those be some hard words, but it’s true. I firmly believe the only way you fail is by giving up. As someone who was stuck in the yo-yo diet cycle of hell for 15 years I know all the tricks. You get all motivated for a day or 2, participate in a new plan or, in this case, a community weigh in and then it gets hard. You slip. You eat a cookie. You have a hard day and binge on pizza. You grab a pint of Ben and Jerry’s after a fight with your partner. You weren’t perfect so you walk away. I’m here to tell you DON’T DO IT. Stay at it regardless and things will start clicking. Things will start moving in the right direction. I’ll say it again, the only way you fail is by walking away. Don’t walk away, face it and forge on.
That was my little ra-ra speech this week. We got this. I’m forging ahead…
Anyway, here’s my scale reading today.
H: 5′ 8”
Down .2 and honestly, I was surprised. I’ve been struggling with the night time snacking. It is my current hurdle and I will overcome.
