Week Two went by quickly and successfully. Following Week 2's challenge and tracking my calories on SparkPeople was far easier than I'd expected. Now I'm wondering why I never did it before. I think it's already made a huge difference in my overall awareness and discipline.
I felt more motivated to take my workouts to 60 minutes more often. And the workouts themselves, whatever they consist of, were non-negotiable. I showed up, I sweated, and I did it. I even moved about on the weekend, although it wasn't for long on Sunday!
I was getting more remarks on how my ribcage area looks a lot smaller, so out of curiosity I measured my bra-band area. I've lost two inches from there, woohoo!!
I stepped on the scale on Saturday morning, expecting to see a loss... And apparently I gained thirty-five pounds.
And then I went to step on it again, and it just seems to be completely broken. Argh!!!
Other than the scale, I'm quite pleased with my week. However, I am NOT pleased that my mind is still a sieve and I'd been forgetting to post my daily numbers in Weight Warriors. Doing this caused us to fall behind in rankings, especially at the end of the week if we'd forget to post our Friday numbers before midnight. Eurgh. I feel like I've been letting my team down. My lack of self-esteem has been whispering things of shame and rejection at me, telling me to ask to resign from the team.
"You're not cut out for this," my mind sneers to myself. "Do everyone a favour and leave."
But you know what? I refuse. I'll just remember to post. I'll set an alarm, even.
Not only am I going to win my body, I'm going to win my mind as well.
