I have to say this week I was rather relieved when I stepped on the scale. The weather, for the most part, was not good this week. We had a couple of sunny days but they were pretty cold and had the sort of wind that steals your breath away and makes you feel vaguely ill.
In addition, this week I just couldn’t face a bright and cheery workout instructor so I just made up my own workouts and got twenty minutes in on the mornings I could. While my loss is less than the pound I would like lost each week, I am okay with it. And yes I know I whined all over the place last week when I lost less than the pound I wanted, but I feel less like whining this week.
I think part of it is that my schedule is finally starting to level out in general. Normality, or my personal version of it, is being restored. And I feel much better for it. I had a couple of projects I was pulled into that just morphed into time sucking behemoths. And everything else in my world got jumbled because of them.
But now they are through and I have to say I will be thinking long and hard before I think about taking another commission from that particular company. But for now, all is well. My stress level has decreased and despite a shorter amount of time walking this week and striking out on my own with my workouts, I managed to actually lose a little weight. And every sliver helps. Because little slivers add up to big ones.
And that is how progress is made. At least in my case. And this weekend I will be pulling together my next week’s workouts. I will post my plan on Sunday and then we’ll see how well I managed to stick to it during my daily postings.
At least that is the plan anyway.
For now, The Stats:
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 219.0 lbs
This week’s weight:218.4 lbs
Lost this week: 0.6 lbs
Lost thus far: 27.6 lbs
So even though the loss wasn’t massive, my mindset is better. My brain isn’t rattling around in my head and I feel pretty good about my week in general. And this weekend I finally get to paint my bedroom. Truthfully, I can’t really ask for more. Well I suppose I could, but I don’t want to be greedy. A good week and less stress is plenty for me right now.
