I hate weigh in days. I hated weigh in days when I was losing almost 5 pounds a week. You would think I would have gotten over that by now, but I haven’t. I have to practice relaxing breathing before they take my blood pressure–just to sorta get an actual reading. We have tried taking it after — that didn’t help — good news or bad I am hyped up and it will distort. It is easier if I close my eyes and think soothing thoughts–but today one of my buds hubby was there crackin’ jokes, and I didn’t quite make it to relaxed for giggling so hard. Giggling should help, but for me it does not. Why? Well, because I forget to breathe! I don’t know why–I am weird like that.
My weigh in was not great. I gained back the 1.5 pounds I lost last week. I was kind of thinking last week’s loss was a tad big, but, oh well. With all the new training and foods that I am incorporating into my diet–this new upward mobility is not a HUGE surprise. I kinda expected it. I kept warning my hubby so he wouldn’t get worried about me (He worries about my getting discouraged). When he called today he kept telling me how sexy I looked on my FaceBook pic (see why I keep him around–I’m NOT dumb! Just sayin’).
What did I do with my setback? I kicked that setback in the REAR! I took my super cool Cervelo out for a spin in my steeply hilled neighborhood. I actually tried to take video with my phone — all I managed to get was video of the ground. …And … my heavy breathing. Smiling sheepishly …. hahaha! Using your chest as a filming station doesn’t seem to work all that well. I will have to come up with a new plan. Don’t worry I have an Idea. I just hope I don’t make you sea sick.
Today, was one of those days where you didn’t get the news you wanted. You didn’t get the reward you should have for all the hard work. Still, you make the conscious choice to see your possibilities instead of your bumps in the road as walls you can’t jump over.
You guys have a GREAT rest of your Day!
