The plan was to lift weights and THEN Zumba but I couldn't get myself out the door on time so I went to Zumba (begrudgingly) and as soon as the class started I was glad I did. I actually felt so good, proud, strong and fit that I decided to stay for weights and killed my push and legs day :)
I'm glad I did! I feel so much better than I would've if I had skipped it. I've been allowing myself to feel sad about my 1 pound gain on Wednesday and that's doing me no good. I honestly couldn't have done anything different...I stayed within my DPT, I worked out, I got all my GHG's EVERY day...I killed it! Sometimes the scale just doesn't acknowledge how hard you work which is exactly why I shouldn't be relying on it as a measure of my progress or success. There are SO many factors that make you successful and at the end of the day I'm still down 98 pounds and guess what...there's no time limit on my journey so it's not like I'm getting kicked out of Weight Watchers because I didn't hit my 100 this week.
Things are SO wonderful at this current moment. I'm working out like I've never done before, I feel stronger and sexier and more toned and just overall more WONDERFUL than I've ever felt; work is just...I can't even put it into words!! haha!! I love, love, LOVE my job and my employer; life at home is great...so why am I focusing so hard on the 1 pound gain I had this week?
I'm NOT!! I'm done with that nonsense!! My life is too wonderful and I'm working really hard and my hard work is paying off and EVENTUALLY if I keep putting in the work, I'll get to that 100 and then I'll get to that goal. We can't change if we're not challenged and what I want more than anything is to change and be a better version of me so I'm accepting the challenge, I'm grateful for it for making me a better, stronger person <3
