I have to admit I was thrilled to see the weight drop this week. It has been one of those weeks where I felt like I did everything right even though the world seemed somewhat against me. The weather was foul, the park was flooded and because of the rains I woke up in the dark which always makes me feel like someone has adjusted my clock in order to play a bad joke. My body has no problem staying up to the wee hours in the morning, but there is something about waking up before there is sunlight that I just do not like.
It makes my mornings feel like I am swimming through molasses just to get things done.
But I did stick with my plan. I kept to my workouts and not only are my muscles noticeably less achy than they were last week but the scale has given me a bit of recognition as well. It feels fantastic.
Yes, I know the scale is not the end all be all and weight is just a number, however on weeks where nothing seems to have gone my way, everything was interrupted by something (although thee were some good interruptions as well as bad), it feels amazing just to have the vindication of the numbers to show that me sticking with the plan, in spite of myself worked.
Somedays a little external validation does make a world of difference.
The Stats: Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 235.3 lbs
This Week’s Weight: 232.4 lbs
Lost this week: 2.9 lbs
Lost thus far: 13.6 lbs
And so with a feeling of good will I leave you here and continue on my day. The rain is still raining and the park is still flooded. But I have a handle on my meal planning and will continue with my indoor exercise plan. I feel really good going into this Friday. I hope you do as well.
