Tuesday Weigh In

183.5 Down 1 pound. I wasn’t home all day yesterday and I’m sorry that I didn’t get to post. It was a very strange week weight-wise. I was already 183 last Wednesday and stayed at that weight every day until Sunday when I was shocked to get on the scale and see 185. What happened? Probably a combination of things, but one thing was that I ate out a lot Friday and Saturday. I think I probably didn’t guess at those calories very well. So this weight is as of Tuesday, not Monday. I’m back on track and figure I need to be a lot more careful when eating out.

I did pretty well with eating vegetables this week. I ate them three times a day, except for two days only twice. Some of the vegetables I ate were: broccoli, roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower, salad, tomato and cucumber salad, green beans, and spinach. I will keep this same goal since I think it helped me be more conscious of getting enough vegetables.

I’m still walking, but was not able to get myself to do any strength exercise this week. I know that all it takes is the first time to erase the negative thoughts like: It’s too hard. I can’t. Tomorrow. I don’t have time. I’m too tired. I’m too weak. I have more important things to do. These are the thoughts that hold me back, especially the last one. I struggle with believing I am worth the effort to get healthy. On a rational level, I know that’s not right. However, these negative thoughts are very hard to get rid of and I am working very hard to get rid of them! I have to keep reminding myself how important it is to me to be healthy.

Here’s to your health!
