As I walked to the scale this morning I thought of my previously cheerful self hurriedly making her way to the scale to record how awesome she is and I just wanted to stick my foot out and trip her.
This week instead of eagerly making my way to the scale I hung my head and dragged my feet as I thought…
Okay, so maybe I’m being a little dramatic.
I did what I do and got naked and stepped on the scale and it said… 211.2
Boo…. last week I weighed 211.6 so I’ve managed to shed a few ounces in a week.
I’ve known this week’s weigh-in was going to be less than spectacular because I only worked out twice. I also had a cheat day on Sunday that kind of trickled into Monday. Other than that I did a pretty good job this week of eating clean and drinking lots of water.
I’m drinking my coffee this morning as I type this and as pathetic as it is I’m secretly hoping it will get things moving so that I can step on the scale again and weigh a few more ounces less.
Too much? Yeah you’re right, that’s gross. Let’s pretend like I didn’t just say that.
Sunday was my first official “cheat” day and I was left wondering if cheat days are a good idea or not. There are many schools of thought but I stumbled upon this article called “Cheat Day- The Best Day of the Week that I found useful.
Do you use a cheat day, if so what are your guidelines? I would love to hear your opinions on it when you weigh in.
UPDATE: I now officially weight 210.8. We will not talk about what transpired to make this magical number happen.
Have a good day everyone!
Oh and here’s a little pep talk just in case your weigh-in didn’t go as planned. There’s nothing wrong with a little daily affirmation
