I know it’s really a bit too early to be calling this week a success – I mean it’s only Tuesday, but it’s working! Yesterday I was all upset about that 199 number. Like, I knew it was going to be temporary and water and salt and everything, but I also just hated that it was coexisting with me. I fight so hard to get those pounds gone that any emergence of their existence again drives me up a wall! Obviously. I mean, 3-4 pounds up and I’m throwing my hands in the air with worry, tracking my food and making sure I’m working out… But I suppose it works. Today I weighed in at 195 again. That felt pretty darn good. I always say that if it goes on fast that it can come off fast, too. This time, I won. Mwa ha ha!
Day two of tracking went much better than yesterday. I had a Zumba workout at the end of the day to look forward to so it wasn’t as big of a deal when those pretzels were calling my name at snack time. I wasn’t hungry and looking for food all day, either. It’s funny how a change in environment, from home to work, can shift so much in such a short period of time. The food wasn’t a struggle today! Zumba was great, tonight, but by 5:10 I was wiped out with 20 more minutes to go. We had just finished a set of really fast, more intense routines and I was done. If Jessica and Janice hadn’t been there I may have left. It is a rare day when I will leave a workout early, but today… I just felt worn out! Emily lead us in a few easier songs after that, though, and by the time I left I was bouncing, again, thank you inborn hyperactivity.
I’d chalk day two of my ‘Get Back on Track and Weigh 190 Already‘ plan as a success! Woot woot! If I keep it up, I’ll definitely make my 190 goal my 2016!
