Wedneday Weigh In
So here it is, the second week of my “no gain” goal. This week I met that goal, but just. I dropped 0.2 lbs this week.
I could have done better this week. But I also had moments where I very consciously made good choices and felt great about them.
The “no gains” goal may seem like a ridiculously low expectation to some, but it was a good mantra in my head when I was thinking about making bad choices. “no gain, no gain” was what I kept telling myself. You will have a gain if you have that drink, or eat that bread or choose pasta instead of salad. I needed that mindset to kick in, to help me in those moments of choice.
Plus, even if I lost just .2 a week, I’d still lose ten pounds in a year. Considering I’ve been with the same four pound range since Christmas, that would be progress. I’m going with what works with me in my head, this week.
I am tracking in My Fitness Pal, and it does help me with accountability.
I am still trying to run most days. I had to take two days off on Sunday and Monday after I donated blood and felt lousy, but now I am back in the game.
Looking forward to a good day and another week of “no gain”. 🙂
