Today was the day of the official weigh in! Last night I made the decision not to try to trick the scale by doing stupid stuff like starving or not eating what I really wanted (Hershey’s kisses and a beer.) I’m glad I was honest. No point in playing mind games with myself on this issue, or anything else, anymore.
The verdict: -1 lb. , -.6% body fat!
Not huge changes, but considering my 2 week hiatus from working out, I was pleased. I actually expected no change which, for me, would have been fine given that I had my normal stress reaction over the last two weeks: death by overeating. (I don’t want to give the impression that I shovel gallons of ice cream in my mouth under the covers and hide candy bars in my glove compartment…That’s just not the case. It’s just that when I get stressed, I’m not likely to cook or make other generally healthy food choices.) I ate way too much fast food last week, so I’m glad to have made some progress in spite of it all.
And, I have worked out every day this week so far! I think I’m back on track.
Next weigh in: August 30th.
