Pound for Pound: Week 6
After the week that I had, you might expect that I wasn’t looking forward to this weigh in today. But honestly, since I processed my thoughts and emotions (via writing this blog post), I was not dreading the weigh in at all.
I truly looked forward to it because I feel like I am starting over again. There are things in life that are not fun to be constantly starting anew, but I feel like as far as health, eating and fitness goes, they are areas that should be reignited at times, even if it means taking a step back to reassess your goals.
I’m not looking at this weigh in as “let’s see the damage I did last week” or as a “bad” result from a week or poor eating, being sick, and not getting very much exercise. I feel like I really had a breakthrough over the weekend, so this is just the starting point for my renewed focus on wholesome nutrition and daily healthy exercise.
- Last week’s weight: 147.5 lbs
- This week’s weight: 151.2 lbs (+3.7 lb)
- Total weight lost to date: 0.4 lbs (8.6 to goal)
Wow. It’s a good thing I prepared myself for this weigh in ahead of time. I have almost completely gone back to square one. Luckily this challenge has 13 weeks left! Definitely enough time that this goal is still realistic for me.
As for the gain…I knew it, I expected it, but still, what a whacky week! I was sick and had a mental meltdown. But I’m definitely over it all now. Don’t worry, I’m not upset. I am using this as motivation. Such a change from the past me!
I really appreciate all the comments on my last post, I hope to incorporate a lot of your all’s ideas into my new plan. Thanks for sticking with me!
This week’s goals
I just have one and that is to get back to a healthy balance of eating good, nutritious foods and getting some much-needed exercise.
What about you?
