I'm trying to remain calm, cool, and collected here. I really am.
I've been really good this week. Seriously. Using Daily Plate, I've been following the calorie count to lose 2 pounds per week with my normal lifestyle activity level. (Not including any exercise.) On top of that, I had 4 days of cardio. So I should see a bit more than 2 pounds right? In fact, I figured it out. I should lose around 2.5 pounds. But I'm shooting for 2 pounds.
I got up this morning and was pretty excited to be honest. What's that scale going to read??
I climbed out of bed. Groggily (I'm so not a morning person) made my way into the bathroom. Did my normal morning business. (You know what I mean. Everyone makes sure they pee before weighing.) Pulled off my clothes, because seriously - who wants to see excess poundage from clothing. Step on the scale.
1.5 *BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP*in' pounds? Are you kidding me?? I worked that hard for 1.5 freakin' pounds??
Well, I guess that 1.5 pounds lost is better than 1 pound... or losing nothing... or heaven forbid GAINING. But man..... it's hard to shoot for something, think you've got it, and see it fall short.
But I will endeavor to be happy about my 1.5 pounds and not be disappointed. It is, after all, 1.5 pounds less than I weighed last week. I think I'm going to start tracking my inches so that I know that I'm losing inches even if I don't lose a lot of pounds.
Hope you guys are having a good week!
