Ugh. The past couple of days have just been ugh. Even though I knew it would was likely to happen and knew there is no reason for it, I’m still discouraged that the pounds aren’t just melting off like the first few days. I’m thinking maybe that I should start weighing myself weekly instead of daily now. My stomach also seems a bit confused about everything going on and is trying adjust to all the changes. At least I hope that’s what is happening…
Thank the stars for the other challenge that I’ve signed up for on 3FC, the one who started it is fantastic and broadcasting optimism : ) It’s hard not to catch some of it.
The last two days I’ve stayed within my calories, but haven’t been eating all the great. The difference is definitely noticeable. Time to go back to my usual green-ish smoothie in the morning (I want a real blender!), whole wheat pasta for lunch and a big salad for dinner. It just seems to do really well for me that way. I haven’t done any activity the last 2 days either, obviously that doesn’t help. At this point I’m trying to chalk it up to 2 bad days and now it’s time to move forward. If I get too disgusted with myself or disappointed with myself, it will only bring more negativity into this process, which is the last thing I want. I’ve only gained one pound back and that could just simply be a normal fluctuation, or my very old, very cheap non-digital very iffy scale. A brand new digital scale is definitely on the horizon. I’m hoping it won’t bring a terrible surprise that I’m actually 10 pounds heavier or something, lol I guess if I am I’ll have to focus on the 10ish pounds that I’ve lost so far. That definitely counts for something.
Well, time to go make a chunky green smoothie (btw orange juice is a much better concentrate than apple to use, apple has way more calories and I actually like the oj flavor better) and plan my activity for today. Maybe double, hiking this morning and zumba tonight, that should help get me back on track!
