As I sat down at the computer to write tonight, Mr. V asked me, “What’s wrong?”
“I don’t want to write my weight post this week,” I told him. “I didn’t do enough.”
Like the math teacher he is, his response was, “Well you should have considered that before the night before the test.”
I have a million excuses this week. Do you? Weather. Just feeling “off” and letting my depression get the best of me many days. Libbie is exercising her will. My knee hurts. Yada, yada, yada.
While I don’t know what the result will be when I step on the scale tomorrow morning (I am writing Thursday night), I know I haven’t done enough this week to make a big difference. I only did The Shred once this week despite my post last week extolling its virtues. I ate both Chinese buffet and a “down home” buffet (future post on buffets being from the devil in the works).
In the past, I probably would have forgotten it all and gone back to my non-exercising self, focusing only on what I want to eat at the time. But knowing I’ve committed to the next eight weeks here, exposing myself to you, sets me straight. I will continue to make baby steps–and those add up to big steps!
WEEKLY GOAL PROGRESS
Body weight percentage lost: I weighed myself 3 times this morning and got three different readings. Insert big, grouchy, cross-eyed look here. I will go with nothing lost this week. May buy a new scale as mine is old and I’m not sure it survived the move.
Sodas drank: 3
Water: didn’t drink as much as I should but some each day.
Whole foods: Other than the unknowns in the buffets and some instant mashed potatoes I wanted to use up, I was successful in sticking to my whole foods! Yay!
