I woke up this morning at 5:29, one minute before my alarm was to go off. I quickly turned it off before it was to start playing the heavenly harp music that I wake up to.
I browsed the social media on my phone for a couple of minutes. Then I remembered it was my day to weigh in. So, I got up, remembering what the scale said yesterday. (Yes, I cheated and weighed myself a day early.) It had said I was the same as last week. So, I was thinking if I lost a pound overnight, that would be great.
I stepped on the scale. I waited for the calculation… and there it was in big neon lights –You Gained 3 Pounds!!!
I was frustrated since, just yesterday, I was three pounds lighter! (note to self you really shouldn’t weigh your self more than once a week.)
I got my exercise clothes on because today I was going to run. Now I knew I needed that run.
I was about 10 minutes in and I thought about quitting. I could just walk the rest of the way and call it good. I mulled it over in my mind.
I need to keep going.
The number on the scale isn’t most important!
I will finish this run!
I will keep living healthy.
I will do better this week.
My weight last week: 151.5 pounds
My weight this week: 154.5 pounds
Total weight lost this year: 29.5 pounds
This week I am going to start tracking my water, exercise, and calories to keep myself accountable.
What changes do you need to make this week?
