My Starting Line

Now that we have that out of the way...

After seeing some sort of miracle {or lucky fluctuation} on the scale last week I was kind of hoping for the same thing this morning. But that would have been expecting a lot after only two days back in the saddle.

Starting Weight {highest weight recorded}: 207.7
Last Week's Weigh In, Jan. 29: 205.9
Today's Weigh In, Feb. 5: 206.6
Gain: 0.7
Overall Loss: 1.1

I didn't get around to posting last week for Weigh In Wednesday so I threw it in with this week's stats just so I have a record of it on the blog. Like I said, last week was a miracle or some lucky fluctuation because I lost 1.8 pounds in a week. And while the gain on the scale this week wasn't huge it was still a bit of a downer.

I was very much tempted to skip out on my work out this morning after my visit with the scale. Instead I pushed past the mental BS and got it done because I knew I would regret skipping the work out, I wouldn't be able to reach my goal for the week, and because I knew I had friends that would be checking in with me. {Thanks Carolyn & Tammy Jo!}

I might hate the work out today but I'll be glad I did it later on. Whether that's tomorrow, a week from now, or a month from now we'll see. But we've all got to start some where and this is my starting line.

How do you get yourself going when you really don't want to get up and do a work out?

  1. Gotta remember that number on the scale is gonna fluctuate! You're doing great!

  2. Have you tried judging by inches and not weight? If you're working out then your weight may stay the same.. if not get higher even if you're losing mass.

  3. It could be just some bloating! Keep going! Good luck!

  4. I like the overall loss :)
    I change into workout clothes and that tends to make me workout before I can take a shower.

  5. I try and find things that I enjoy doing workout wise. Spin class isnt for me, Id rather ride outside. Running isn't for me, but I'll walk or jog, etc. Also laying your clothes out where you can see them and having a set in the car, so theres no excuses if you forget them. I have regretted skipping a workout, BUT I have never regretted a workout!

  6. Isn't that the best feeling, pushing yourself to go exercise even though you felt down from the scale? That is when strength is created and winners are made. That mentality will keep you losing. You will get past the weight gain from this past week, just keep pushing on babe!

  7. Anytime friend!! You are doing such an awesome job!
