Seven Pounds Through It!
Monday, May 01, 2017
I'm at the start of week three, seven pounds lighter. I was shocked this morning to see a four pound loss, especially after the week I had. I am a person who stresses easily, highly emotional is how most people describe me, and last week was a doozy. The kids were being extra whiny and the money was tight and the hubby didn't feel well. I was stressing!
Through all that stress though, I still managed to stick to my routine, minus the sugar in the cup of hot tea I absolutely needed yesterday. I got in at least 30 minutes a day and at my healthy choices.
I wouldn't say I managed my stress, I was still on the floor bawling, twice, but I managed not to stress eat or use it as an excuse not to hit the gym. And I'm typically the type of person who puts weight on in stressful situations.
I wasn't able to blog or track yesterday and I was really nervous that I wouldn't see a change on the scale or worse yet to see a gain. So I was beyond excited not only to see a decrease, but a significant amount. It gives me a renewed sense this morning. I feel like I can take on the world.
Today the hubby and I are going to try rock climbing. Not only am I'm going to challenge myself to a new workout, but I'm going to challenge myself to my fear of heights. I feel like I'm ready to try. I'm ready to try for me.
Tough times don't last, tough people do
