I have been fighting my own schedule to get time to write a blog post I’ve been working on…and I’m still fighting – so I’m posting this update today instead. Expect the actual blog post to show up in the next couple of days, I promise.
I recently explained that I’d gained almost all my weight back because I failed to keep using the tools I value so much – mainly my bathroom scale and my food log. Meanwhile, elastic waists on giant pants don’t help much either.
As you can see by the weight loss ticker on the right, I’ve lost 4 of those pounds already this week. BOOM!
I’m back to logging my food, I’m back in the gym, and I’m drinking a ton of water. I’d like to say something sassy and brag about my awesomeness, but I’m still quite pissed at myself for having to do this work over again. It’s a daily chore not to beat myself up mentally for being in this position in the first place, but I’ve gotten pretty good at focusing on my true goal and marching the hell down the road toward my ultimate goal.
My next blog post will be another very honest, humbling post for me about some pretty constant pain I’m having. So if you’re struggling right now and you can’t seem to stop that scale from going up instead of down, this next blog post might be the thing you need to put the brakes on. Stay tuned…I’ll be back before Sunday!
In the meantime, do one thing today that’s more than you did yesterday. Drink more water…eat healthier…move more. Just one thing. Don’t think about the big picture and don’t beat yourself up. Just do one thing.
Hugs from me,
