Stupid Doctor's Scale!!!!
Thursday, May 21, 2009
I started my day already in a funk over the fact that I've not been going to the gym (my back has been bothering me) and that I had a terrible binge yesterday. Then I go to a doctor's appointment before work where I received good news (my blood pressure has improved to a "normal" range ... woo hoo!) but my weight is up almost three pounds since visiting him two weeks ago!! My home scale has been telling me that I'm staying the same...of course, my awesome doctor gives me the whole "you're going to the gym, so you're gaining muscle and getting fitter...don't let the scale discourage you" speech, but I still want to see results.
I have got to get back on the plan here...I just wish it was easier to stick with. My motivation and positivity last a few days and then I slide back into "screw it" mode. It probably doesn't help that my job sucks right now, I'm running two theatre companies (neither of which I'm terribly passionate about at the moment!!), and I've been feeling really emotionally beaten-down.
Today's goal: Figuring out how to get myself motivated again. My next doctor's appointment is in 6 weeks...I'd like to lose the three that his scale says I've gained and go down another three in that span of time!
