Well, yesterday I did well; I hit the gym, I drank my water, I ate my salad... then after work I joined up with some friends for drinks and laughs. I had chicken fingers and bruschetta for dinner, along with four beers.
I didn't bother to weigh in today. I know the deal. No movement/upward movement. That's fine.
Again, I did well this week. Exercised 5 times, ate my chicken salads for lunch, drank loads of water. It was just one of those weeks where I didn't lose. But the key is, I stayed on plan and didn't get discouraged and give up/give in. So there's an important victory in this week that goes far beyond the scale - keep at it. The scale doesn't matter. The number doesn't matter. Getting healthy, being healthy, acting healthy... this is what matters.
So I'm going to keep on keeping on. Hopefully next week I'm rewarded for my continued efforts this week.
