Bad news first...I cheated. Please don't hold it against me but I did. I had a rum and diet this evening to take the edge off of a very crazy, strange and dramatic day. It helped and I am now back on track.
The other bad news is that I gained 2 of the 3 lbs I lost back over the weekend! Eh, I'm not surprised. That's what happens when you cheat. And here I am doing bad again tonight. That's ok. Working out is what really affects my body and weight the most. Way more than my diet. So I will continue to bust my arse!
Which leads me to the good news. Even after a very long, very restless night, I STILL made it to the gym with my little nugget in tow. I did a 20 minute run at 4.5 on the treadmill, biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, back and a boat load of abs! I did a total of 150 crunches in different varities, obliques and 50 reverse curls on the hang-y thing in the weight room. I am happy with my performance today.
So, as I go forward to reach my goal, I need to be sure that I have a reality check. There will be days that I will cheat and that's ok. As long as I keep moving and doing my best to reach my goal, I'm still me and I still have weaknesses that I know I will play into. I just have to love who I am and do the best I can do. I WILL reach my goal...just maybe not as fast as I had hoped.
How are you doing on your weight loss journey?
