So I managed to get a nice 40 minute workout on the elliptical when I get home from work. Thankfully tonight was a ‘bye’ week for Frankie’s darts (for those of you who don't understand what that means, it means no darts this week) so I didn’t have to worry about being rushed. We stopped to Wegmans on the way home from work and picked up a rotisserie chicken for dinner…yum, yum!
The 40 minutes I did were quite hard actually. My legs and core are still very sore (I rhymed, hee hee) from running the 6 miles on Sunday. I contemplated giving myself another night off to rest & heal up, but I just kept thinking to myself “I have to try to undo the damage I did over the weekend!”. And then it hit me….
So fucking what?!?! Maybe I wont “undo” the damage within 4 days. I haven't had a gain in weeks. Not to brag here, but I seriously just don't remember. Sometime before Christmas I think. I’ve been losing every week since. YOU CANT LOSE EVERY WEEK!! If I have a gain Thursday night, so f’ing be it!! I can be ok with that because I know that I have picked myself up since Saturday. I got right back on program Sunday and since then I have made a stellar accomplishment with my running (did I mention I ran 6 miles?? lol) and I have tracked all of my food and have even had left over points on a few occasions. I pushed myself through a tough workout tonight and went 20 minutes beyond the minute time I *promised* myself that I would get through. I also have added a TON of vegetables & fruits into my diet this week. Oh…AND…tomorrow I am trying a brand new WW friendly crock pot recipe that I found on a FABULOUS new blog…I will share the results of that, plus the shout out to the blog tomorrow night. So not only did I manage to make one new recipe this month (let alone this week!) but I made 2!!
So you know what…I’m going to stop thinking that I need to “undo” anything, and start thinking “keep on the healthy path that has become your great new life”…sorry, I cant think of a clever way to sum that up into a word or two.
We will see what happens on Thursday at my WI, but either way I know that whatever the scale says, I know that I have picked myself up, dusted myself off, and am following the right path….and that’s all that matters (and that I still fit into my dress, but I’m not worried about that, LOL).
