Guess what!? I worked out FOUR days this week!!! I did the elliptical three days and did strength one day. I felt so good this week and I know it had everything to do with working out. I just don't know why I have such a hard time actually doing it when I know how good it will make me feel. I also lost .4 lb this week which was ehh but at least it wasn't a gain!

So, this week was SO much better! I lost all but .2 lbs of what I gained the last week (yay!). I did work out on the elliptical twice this week and I'm trying to celebrate the small victories and not get bogged down with the "big" picture. When I had gained so much last week I felt so discouraged and felt like a complete failure but after a little perspective I realized that maybe that was the "switch" that I needed to flip in my head. Instead of wallowing in it and just giving up, it motivated me to get my butt out of bed and work out two mornings. Maybe next week it will be three, five, or even the six that I would like it to be. So, I move forward, (trying) not to look back!

So, here I am writing this almost a week late. I think I needed that long to come to terms with it. 10/10/10 was not a happy day for me. We had a wonderful time on our trip to the beach! Unfortunately, part of the wonderful was donuts, pizza, ice cream, etc. So, when I weighed myself Sunday and saw that I had gained 3.4 lbs (!), I kind of lost it, like crying, lost it. It was not pretty. I was happy that while at the beach we did a lot of walking, climbing stairs, hiking and even scaling a sand dune but for some reason that didn't seem to make much difference! So, I'm trying to put a period after it and move on...

This was a really bad week weight-wise. Gained 1.8 lbs from last week. It probably doesn't help that I ate chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes this week. Oh, and I didn't work out this week either. This next week we are going to the beach for a couple of days and I'm hoping to get that "switch" flipped in my head that will get me motivated...here's hoping!
