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. emoticon I will not allow it to TELL ME how I FEEL. Take that 172 pounds!

    Awesome job! That's how I felt Sunday; did my weigh in and took my measurements even though I really didn't want to see the truth. Now that I know, I can only move forward emoticon

    emoticon job getting back in gear despite feeling de-motivated!!! The scale indeed does not define you!! Your attitude rocks and just keep that positive attitude because no matter how you stumble, you get right back up and you will achieve your goals!! emoticon emoticon !!

    Sounds like you have a great attitude! Remember that the scale is only one measurement of your progress. It could simply be that you ate more sodium that you intended, etc. Sometimes we have to focus more on how we are feeling, how our clothes fit, etc. Take it one day at a time. Great job on the positive attitute and moving forward!
