Acknowledge the Issue and Move On
Friday, September 06, 2013
I have to admit, I've been a little down-n-out as far as my exercise routine is concerned. My setback on my mini-goal threw me for a loop. Did I eat healthy this week and still track calories - Yes. Did I exercise - Yes, but not as much as I would have if my motivation would have been intact.
However, I have acknowledged the issue that - Yes - for SOME reason or another - my weight went from 169 to 172. Is pouting about it going to help - NO! Is dwelling on it going to help - NO!
Can I change the fact that it happened - NO! Can I accept it, kick my butt into gear, and do something about it - ABSO-F*CKIN-LUTELY! (pardon my language, but I'm working on my motivation here!)
I pulled myself up by the bootstraps (or rather tennis shoe ties), and hopped back on the treadmill (for warm-up), elliptical (for cardio), and even did some strength training.
I AM stronger than the SCALE.
I will not allow it to TELL ME how I FEEL. Take that 172 pounds!
