I have no idea why I put myself through scale torture, but I decided to hop on again this morning after convincing myself that yesterday's gain was water retention or something. Guess what? I'm UP another pound.
I have been exercising every single day this week. Eating well (except for an extra granola bar yesterday, which I'm not gonna beat myself up over). What the heck is going on? I hope that all of this is muscle gain or something, because honestly, I can't possibly do anymore.
Obviously, I'm perplexed, but I'll keep trudging forward. I'll push myself the extra mile. I've got no choice, and I need to keep remembering that the scale is NOT a measure of my progress. THIS is:
- clothes fitting better over the last month;
- building up the cajones to sign up for a 5K;
- skin looking better than it has in months;
- making better choices for eating.
I need to focus on the important stuff, right?
The struggle continues for another day.
