Am I disappointed? Of course. But here's a list of all the positive things that go along with it:
- I know exactly why I gained this week. I only officially exercised twice. My eating was a B-. I came down with a bad cold, and my energy levels were awful. It's not like I worked my butt off by eating perfectly and exercising everyday. If that were the case, I would be seriously vexed!
- I still made my goal for the month of August. I wanted to lose 8-10lbs. I lost 9.5.
- I did something positive everyday for my health. Whether I pushed myself to do some activity, or avoided raiding the cupboards for junk, they were all small wins.
- This lit a fire under my butt to try harder. I know what I have to do. I just have to do it!
p.s. As much as it pained me to do it, I edited my ticker.:-( Ten was such a beautiful and round number. Oh well - next week will go in the other direction!
