Fit to be Friday (On Time!)Posted: February 1, 2013
Yay! I actually weighed in and have a chance to blog about it on Friday! Viva la Bovine! I also lost my weekly goal of one pound. Moo.
You would think I’d be on cloud 9 but I’m not. It would be more worth celebrating if the loss wasn’t due to the fact that I ate very little yesterday knowing I was going to record my weigh- in today. It feels like cheating. I did not do much on the dieting front all week (Although I didn’t gain weight which in my world is always a plus). Spent one day eating nothing but almonds and cottage cheese and lost a pound. Cheater you say. To which I respond, “I know, Moo!”
Not only is the 1 pd weight loss not a cause of celebration but if I were a betting Bovine, I’d bet on me gaining it back ASAP. So, technically, it was a loss solely for the purpose of recording a loss today. How stupid (but very Bovinesque). Only made worse by the fact that I am coming clean about it so now you know that even though I happily recorded the one pound loss on My Fitness Pal, it is a fib and in all likelihood won’t be there for long.
I am going to work hard this week to keep that pound off and even harder to lose another pound by next Friday. Admittedly, I am happy to weigh 5 pounds less even if it’s only for today. That’s 1/2 way to 10 pds and 10 pds seems substantial; a loss far enough away from my starting weight that I won’t gain it all back, does that make sense?
I am really determined that this is going to be my year to lose weight. 2013 is my year of getting lean. Dammit. I need to step up my game. I want to be fit and lean, I do, I do, I do. I just wish I didn’t have to work so hard to get there.
Why couldn’t I have been born a cheetah, instead of a Bovine??
