I'm not the only one on this blog with a little spill-over. Jasper has a muffin top too:
This morning I weighed in at four pounds heavier than when I started my workout plan last week. FOUR POUNDS. Not cool! I guess that's what I get for taking Friday and Sunday off. But on Saturday I did the 30-Day Shred and more than an hour of yard work! Doesn't that even out?
I know, I know, I just started. I shouldn't expect results right away. I did the Shred plus two and a half hours of yard work and cleaning today to up the ante. I could have done something else with that chunk of time, but the litter boxes don't scrub themselves, people.
I constantly have to remind myself that the number on the scale is not the end-all, be-all of getting healthy. My weight can fluctuate several pounds from day to day, and it has always been this way. I still track my morning weigh-ins using a fancy spreadsheet I designed that turns all the data into an easy-to-read line graph, but how my clothes fit is a much better gauge of how I'm doing. My jeans felt pretty good yesterday.
Still, though, I wish I had some little birdies who would help me lighten the load on the scale a little bit so I could feel like what I'm doing is working. One of my short term goals is to have my weight start with a one again, and that's not going to happen if I keep plus-fouring.
