My first scale non-victory today…I didn’t hit my goal of 349.
I kind of felt like that would be the case after waiting a week and a half for my new walking shoes to come in, immediately followed by a visit from the 7 Dwarfs of the Apocalypse. I know exactly what I need: another 7 Days of Sanity to kick off the next leg of my Battle of the Butt.
After the 7 Dwarfs of the Apocalypse departed on Monday, I got on the scale and it was hanging faithfully at 354 – so I felt good that all the water gain was gone. And this morning the scale is reading 351. 3 pounds is not a bad haul for 6 days!
I’m confident that I’ll be able to get to 349 by next week now that I’m working out again. And I’m going to have to push it a little extra hard in April if I’m going to make 339 by the end of the month. Those are my goals for the next month. Pretty big goals!
You know what this means, right? The first leg of 7 Days of Sanity starts TOMORROW! Who’s with me?
From Sunday, April 1 to Saturday, April 7 I will workout every single day for 30 minutes…and rest on the 8th. Then I’ll pick it up again…and so on. I will get there – and I’m sure it’ll be sooner than later.
There is a tiny little voice in my head right now that’s trying to beat me up for not hitting 349…and I just keep telling her to shut the hell up. If I listen to that voice, I’ll start giving up. Failure won’t be far behind. From the moment I started this, my plan of attack has always been to handle self-doubt, set backs, and self-loathing by running full steam ahead towards my goal. Years of drowning my sorrows in Little Debbies and pizza have shown me that the road behind me leads to nothing but pain and embarrassment.
Feel like a failure or not, it’s up to me. I’m not a failure. 30 pounds lost in 3 1/2 months is effing bad ass. 🙂 349 will be mine soon enough.
Tomorrow I wake up and start the sanity. I also think I’m ready to try working out in the mornings again. For a time, I was too grumpy in the mornings…but now I think it might be good to start my mornings with something extremely positive…so I’m going to try that again. After all, what the hell do I have to be grumpy about?
I’ll tell you what: it felt really good to move some marbles this morning. Really good.
