I have never been a fan of roller coasters. Just like everyone, I like the thrill and fear of coming down, but its the going up that I cant stand.
Same can be said of my weight.
Which has been stuck on a roller coaster for about 2 years now.
But its not one of them big wild twisting upside down roller coasters, its more like the little park coasters for children.
The ups and downs arent all that big.
In the last few weeks I have known the thrill of coming down.
A full 14 pounds.
And right back up again about half way.
So, now, I am stuck on the track waiting for a hot fireman to come to my rescue.
Except I am just stuck here.
I am getting pretty tired of the numbers not playing well with others!!!
I know this, I have been working hard. Today, I walked at my regular track, then I went to another park and walked another mile, and added a mile and a half waking up and down the steep winding streets in my home town.
I walked a total of 100 minutes.
Today I have also gotten back to weights doing some dumbbell squats, overhead lifts and chest presses.
Lunges and kickbacks.
Just adding little bits here and there to add to my calorie and activity tracker.
I know I am doing well with the diet. Non-diet. I am just eating alot healthier and while I did have some pizza on Friday night and even had a biscuit with some gravy for breakfast on Sunday.
I know that my weight did not climb a full 7 lbs for that alone.
I am perplexed by the scale.
But on my doctors scale yesterday the number matched mine, So I had no choice but to accept it as it was.
I have no idea how or why this happened.
It is almost defeating.
Makes you question the sanity of getting out of bed so early to walk and workout.
Not going ahead and having some rolls from the bread basket, or dessert or even just drinking a big ol alcohol mixed fruitty drink.
It is more insane, to measure, count, cut, protein load, etc.
But I continue.....
Today is better tho.
I enjoyed my walk, I enjoyed the cooler temps, I enjoyed my music and just being there in the moment, exercising.
Knowing that even if the scale wont cooperate, I surely must be improving my health.
I surely must be lowering my cholesterol and blood pressure and increasing my body's ability to function better.
I will stick with that for now.
That is all I can do. Well, actually I know I can do more. Im getting there.
