Mamavation Monday: damn scale

So I weighted myself a couple of weeks ago. Remember how I said I never weight myself cause it messes with my head? Well it has messed with my head. I am feeling fat all because I had found out I was 10 lbs heavier than I thought. 10 lbs in the grand scheme of things is nothing. I lose 30 or so going wheatfree and have kept 20 of that off for the last three years! Not too bad. I need to cut myself a break. I am slowly going back to running and working out. Very slowly going back!

I have started doing my power 90 strength training and cardio. I tried the abs 100 and it kicked my butt. However I spent most of last week nursing a hurt back. It hurt! I took Tuesday til Friday. I went for a 17 min run on Saturday and hit 2k or just under 1.5 miles. Really not horrible for having a three month break from running. I went slow and I want to work my way back to about 10 miles a week. I had been doing so good! I am aiming for a half mary. I can do it! I can do it. I can do it?

Anyways, I feel fat. I am not fat. I just feel fat. I guess you could in fact fight the assessment of my fatness but whatever! I will keep working out and keep moving. I am also working hard to eat cleaner. So more cooking and planning ahead. I know that if we eat at home I will feel better because I will know what I am putting in my body. I am also going to do better about packing my lunch so that I am not stressing in the morning and worrying about what I am going to eat. I must plan ahead!

  1. Good luck & you will get your running stride back in no time

  2. BIG HUGS for you Martha! It always stinks when the scale says you weigh more than you thought you did, but now that you have the baseline, you can work to whittle that number down. You can do it, I know you can! Have you been taking measurements too? Sometimes it helps to see those go down if the scale is stuck!

  3. Sending you HUGE hugs!!! You will get back into this faster than you know it, and we will cheer you on.

  4. Good luck getting in a groove soon and seeing results. It can be frustrating when you want to see progress and it is not there. Stick to developing great habits and above all feeling positive about yourself. Have a stellar week.
