Well the title kind of says it all. I was so excited to step on the scales this morning. I was sure I had lost at least two pounds. I have added exercise to my routine, 3 times this week, but still have not increased my water intake.
At some point when you start to exercise, fat turns to muscle and muscle weighs more than fat, or so we are told. My clothes are fitting better and I am noticing the difference in the mid-section.
Here it goes, time to step on the scale…”What?! Nothing?! Not even a half a pound?!” Unbelievable! I worked so hard at it this week. I only over-indulged in blueberries, which are good for you, but I guess I should not have eaten half a container of them. I only snuck into my husbands trail mix treats and dug out all the smarties and almonds and ate them, once! Well that is because I stole them all and ate them all in one sitting. Oh, I see, that is where I went wrong! Boy, I tell you, this blogging thing is keeping me honest, about my journey to healthy eating lifestyle. See that smiley face on the smarty? That is how I feel when I am eating them. The blurry ones are how I feel after I’ve eaten the whole darn thing. I can’t believe I ate the whole thing! Remember that slogan?
All I have to do is think back over the past week, figure out what I did or did not do to cause lack of movement to the bathroom scales. This along with not drinking the water I need, is the contributing factor of not losing a single pound. Still I will not consider it a failure. I am succeeding with the healthy eating lifestyle. My husband tries to bring home treats that I won’t eat and normally I would not have eaten the smarties and almonds that are mixed with salt and other stuff, but in desperation, I will eat junk if it is there. I don’t think he will buy those again. At least I have asked him not to buy anything that has goodies I like mixed in with them right now.
I am improving my lifestyle each week. I am moving forward, this time I will concentrate on drinking more water. Oh, I think I have said that before. This time I really mean it! lol!
Alright! Bring on the water!
I’m Frazzled Again.
