Today's weigh in was better than I expected I only gained 1 lbs. in the last 2 weeks -now before I get upset let me clarify a few things first. All last week I was so not on my plan - I ate out more than once (and did not eat healthy) I went to the movies on Saturday night and ate popcorn had soda etc. - also after the race I went and had a HUGE sundae and on Sunday I ate at a local place that has Sunday brunch and I had these wonderful pancakes with whipped cream yummo! So gaining 1 lb not something I am really worried about right now. So in all I did really great!
A couple of weeks ago I was telling my trainer my new focus is to not let the scale be my prisoner. I know I have discussed this before but the scale can rule your life if you let it. I could let this 1 lb gain upset me or just except it and move on and do better from now on. The scale can play with your emotions and also your happiness - I find if I am too focused on the scale I cannot do anything else and I let it rule me in so many ways. Having a good life is up to you don't let something that really does not matter in many ways determine who you are. I WILL lose the weight I have set for myself in the next few months and I WILL accomplish my training for the half marathon (which is really going to be tuff) and I know I WILL be successful. Let's free ourselves from this pattern and learn to love ourselves. I cannot believe I am writing this (ha) after only a few months my whole view of my journey has changed I have changed and I can see for the better and I can say it is the best feeling I have had in a long time. Thanks for keeping up with me!
