Prefacing with I'm not giving up...

BUT, this is why I do give up. Every single time.
Today is WI day. I know I am more than just a number on a scale but this is crazy. I am UP 6 pounds. Now, I would love to say that I've been lying. I've been lying to myself, to you, to everyone. I'm not eating as well as I should be. BUT,  that is NOT the case. My calories have been spot on. My workouts are insane. There is no way on God's green Earth that I should be UP 6 pounds!

I'm going to give it some time. There are a few things going against me right now:
1. TOM is nearly exiting the building.
2. I have a UTI
3. I'm fighting a cold AND allergies.
4. I'm under a lot of stress. I really need to start wearing my night guard again before all my teeth fall out from my clenching so hard.

So, I am not giving up. I am allowed to be frustrated. I am allowed to hate the scale. I'm allowed my pity party for a moment. I will take my frustrations out in the gym this morning.

I will break through this. Although, it shouldn't be happening during week 3!!! Just sayin'.


  1. I know that frustration well! As you said, it's not just about the number. Ignore it for the week and keep doing the amazing job you've been doing. Hope you managed to take those frustrations out at the gym!
