I stepped on the scale this morning and I’m up 4 pounds. So discouraged. I’ve been under my calories all week and have worked my literal ass off. What I don’t understand is the why.Well, I understand the why — Calories out were apparently less then calories in. I guess what I don’t’ understand is the how. I tracked and watched what I ate… I exercised and I burned calories. So boo-hoo poor me. 😦
But instead of focusing on the why and the how of this disappointment, I can choose to focus on what I HAVE accomplished this week.
I’ve been to the gym and according to my Nike+, I’ve done over 38K steps. That’s A LOT.
I pushed myself during yoga and got deeper into some poses that I ever have before and SURPRISE SURPRISE…. it made a huge difference in how I feel the day after, in a GREAT way. Sore but sore with a reminder that I CAN push myself further than I thought and be okay after.
I have driven past Dunkin Donuts each time I’ve said I wanted to go and didn’t stop once. I’m so HUGELY proud of this peeps, ya’ll have no idea. I have been craving a Boston Creme for weeks now and I’m continuing to talk myself out of it.
So yeah, the scale went up..but guess what— So did my self confidence, and that’s worth much more.
