Weighed in tonight. Feeling hormonal, ravenous and puffy which sucks. I felt super thin earlier this week and woke up this morning feeling like a bloated tick. BLECH.
But that's OK because I'll take it off again, if I was up...not entirely sure...cause I'm still not weighing in...well, I am but I'm not looking at the number and I don't have access to my own Success Record so I will have a history of weigh in's for the month of January...I just won't know what January looks like until 2/3.
It's so weird. Surprisingly I'm not freaking out as much as I thought I was going to. I thought that a month without the scale was going to be a month of panicking and obsessing and freaking out about being in the dark but I'm actually handling it well.
Last week I felt like I was down and it would've been a nice pat on the back to hear that I actually was but I don't need the number on the scale to validate me. I felt good last week and THAT is what matters. The number does not.
This week I need to get it together with my meal and exercise planning. Having it all laid out makes me feel a lot better and makes it easier for me to stick to my plan. Trying to fly by the seat of my pants doesn't work for me and it's what I've been (unsuccessfully) doing for the past couple of weeks which has resulted in a lot of repeat dinners. Mostly frozen fish and a green veggie and possibly a starch either brown rice or a sweet potato. It's a decent dinner but eating that 3 or more times a week is really redundant and boring. And I haven't been working out the way I should be...I've been to tired, unmotivated and not feeling great but I know I'll start feeling better as soon as I start working out. Here's my plan:
Th: Working a double (8a-9p) no exercise; fish and veggie for supper
F: Doctors appointment at 8:30 a.m.; hit the gym afterwards for at least 30 mins cardio and weights if there is time before work. American Chop Suey for dinner
Sa: Work then holiday party. I'll eat a large salad with zero points veggies and spend no more than 3 SP on dressing prior to the party. At the party I'll do my best to make healthy choices but since I'll be full of salad that should be easier. LOTS of H2O :) I don't do booze or soda so I'll save points on the beverages.
Su: Piloxing class at 8:15; weights following Piloxing. Lemon garlic chicken served with whole wheat spaghetti
M: Morning spin class; pork chops with sweet potato
T: Evening spin class; breakfast for dinner (eggs, WW smoothie pancakes)
W: Rest day; sushi for dinner
Going to have a GREAT week this week! I am determined, I am strong, I am powerful and I can and will rise up and overcome! Watch out world!!
