Quit Doubting – Weekly Weigh In

What an adventurous week I had.  For it to be my first week “on track”, it was kind of weird.

I did really well for the whole week until the weekend hit.  And we got ice and a little bit of snow.  And I wanted to eat, eat, eat.  I ate too many Doritos and drank some wine (not normally a big drinker).  I didn’t work out after Thursday and took some naps.  We really didn’t leave the house until Sunday afternoon and that was just to get out.  Then, they cancelled school for today.  So…hubs and I went to a movie and got out of the house (not too much ice around us).  Now, they have cancelled school for tomorrow!!!  There is quite a bit of ice in the northern part of the county and it is not really safe for school buses.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for a few unexpected days off, however, the Type A in me doesn’t like not have our normal routine.

But…I will get over it.  I’m already over it!

I do need to workout tomorrow though.  That is a must!

So, onto this morning’s weigh in.

I was very hesitant to weigh in.  I knew it was Monday and I was going to weigh in whether I liked it or not.  I am still not really sure why I was so hesitant.  I ate on track.  I tracked what I ate.  I got in a good workout twice.  I didn’t eat any sweets.  I did have some wine.  Overall, I did quite well.  I think overall we just need to trust the process and stop worrying so much of whether or not it is going to work.

Anyway…I stepped on the scale and was pleasantly surprised to see a loss.

January 9, 2017 Weekly Weigh In

4 pounds to be exact!  I was shocked and happy and ready to rock out week number 2.

So…please, I beg of you.  Don’t look at how far you have to go.  Don’t doubt the process and if it will work.  Don’t NOT start because you aren’t sure if you will be successful.  Start now.  Today.  Make small changes and see what happens.  You can do this!  I can do this.  We will do this one day at a time!

How was your week last week?  Did you have a crazy weekend like I did?

    I’m so glad you are blogging again! I have missed your updates! I live in the Upstate of SC and we also have our second day off of school today…and I also haven’t worked out since last Thursday. I will try to get back on track today!

    I am starting back this week, too! I love your “One Day at a Time” and am going to adopt it as my mantra for the year! I am a worrier by nature and self-sabotage myself CONSTANTLY with my diet/exercise. Thanks for blogging! You are an inspiration!
