this morning i had my 7 week weigh in. i know i haven't talked about it a lot, but the new plan that Steve [from Fitness Poynters] has got me on has been going really well. [ps... i do plan on doing a full evaluation/review of the plan once i've finished the 12 weeks. maybe even some before/after pics if i'm brave enough.]
but this morning i had a 'set back'. i gained 2.5 pounds.
and i was pissed.
this i what i like to call the great scale debacle. to weigh or not to weigh? if i lose, it's never enough. if i gain i feel like i failed. and the failure would be easier to deal with if i'd cheated this week. but i didn't. i busted my ass in all my workouts and ate clean. beyond frustrating.
but i ate my clean breakfast, listened to a great message about how we make the small things big, then went to workout.
by the end of my workout, i was over it. isn't it crazy what endorphins can do? while brad was finishing up i went to sit outside to wait and think. while i was sitting there i started reading the lululemon manifesto that's printed on the bag. one part of it stuck out to me like a sore thumb.
life is full of setbacks... success is determined by how you handle setbacks. BOOM.
