I worked for a month to get from -99lbs to -100lbs.
It took me one WEEK to go right back to -99lbs.
I am not beating myself up because I know it's part of the journey. I also know that I ate sushi last night, which can be high in sodium and I also ate lunch out yesterday even though I DID make healthy decisions. Then topped my night off with a handful of jelly beans. Not to mention in the beginning of the week I used all my weeklies on wine. So I knew the gain was happening. I expected it. I didn't cry and mope over it and I let it go as soon as I got off the scale but the twinge of frustration is still there since I worked so hard to reach a milestone for a handful of jelly beans to try to take it away.
I say "try" to take it away because in my mind I have still lost 100lbs, I just had an off week. Not really "off" because I followed the plan 99% of the time. It just wasn't one of my best weeks and I definitely didn't workout like I usually do.
BUT....a new week started at 7:05 this morning when I stepped down from that scale and I am going to bust booty this week.
My friend Nicole and I promised to focus on power foods this week and to choose workouts we haven't done in a while. For me, that is Jillian Michaels. I haven't done any of her workouts in a couple weeks so this week I am promising to get in at least one, if not more, of them 5 days out of the week this week. It's times like this that you need an accountability partner, or several!! If you don't have someone that you can text or call when you have a rough moment on this journey OR a huge celebration, then you are missing out! Go get an AP! (Accountability Partner)
Sooo after I left my meeting I was feeling slightly bummed but I think the rainy day and a few other things going on attributed to that. But if anybody knows me, they know that retail therapy can solve all my problems.....at least for the time being. So I bought a bathing suit, a couple new dresses, and a new sports bra.
A work in progress indeed....in so many aspects of my life!! Working on being the best me that I can be. mentally, physically, and spiritually, but that doesn't come overnight!
