Disappointment = Discouragement
Discouragement = Quitter
That was the "old me", that is not the "new me". I refuse to give up! And for the first time I can really understand why the scale said what it said.
I was excited and scared to once again weigh in, I knew I didn't have the same work out as I did the week before. Although I didn't skip a day working out, for some reason the mojo wasn't there. The week before I was so impressed I was able to increase my speed and mileage without much effort. With such a good week I felt that in no time I was going to be a running force. But as if Monday reminds people it starts a new work week and leaves you feeling a bit drab, it started a different workout for me. I had trouble pushing myself to do what I did the week before. Even the first day work out seemed easier than this. My speed was slower, much more walking a lot less jogging.
I was just so exhausted from it all!
As with many times before when trying to make a life change, I found myself getting lax on registering my food intake as well. And the minute you do that, you are forgetting about 10 calories here and 50 calories there. I know for the most part I ate good, but I did have a few moments of weakness. And of course you shouldn't deprive yourself if you have to have a taste of that ice cream cake your daughter made, after all it is low fat. I really did just snack a bit, but my plate balance was also lax this week. (see my balance plate in an earlier blog)
I was GUILTY once again of exactly what my scale told me.
What has made this time different, is my bodybugg. As I plugged it in this morning and looked back on the past 4 days of eating and exercise, I realized I am exactly where I should be for what I ate and exercised. I am at peace with my scale, just not so much at peace with myself. Yes it really is ME that is to BLAME. My bodybugg said I had a deficit of a 1.5 pounds, and pretty much that is where I am today with my weight loss.
Always hold on to the other things involved with your weight loss when the numbers are low...

Positive thinking is your bottom line...keep that in check don't get discouraged by disappointment!!
I am a winner this time!!!!!
After all, it is loss!
