I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays. I love that it is the weekend. I love that it is church day. I hate that, for me, it is weigh in day.
WHen I weighed in today I had a big gain. so I began to look in the rear view mirror of my past week.
I tracked all of my food, and I was in range every day. I tracked and drank plenty of water. I even got in an extra day at the gym, in addition to my two one hour sessions working with my trainer. Every day I got at least 10,000 steps in and most days it was over 12,000.
I spun the wheel here on SP, visited Spark coach and read healthy articles every day.
Daily I posted to Community feed and left positive comments on other's posts.
I visited my SP teams every day, where I huddled and gave as wells got encouragement.
I committed to blog every day through the end of the year hoping to help me figure out some of my issues and work through them. I blogged every day.
Yet with all of that, I gained weight this week. ANd looking in that rear view mirror, I have either gained or stayed the same every week for a long, long time.
COntinuing to look in that rear view mirror - I eat healthy food. I have no junk in my house. I did not go out to eat.
I reviewed all of the things I have done in the past to try and help - pills and powders, diets and drinks. NOthing has made any difference.
I have seen doctors about my hormones and metabolism, and though this has not made a difference, I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycycistic Ovarian SYndrome) but I am determined not to let that either discourage me or make me give up.
THe rear view mirror can be helpful and it can be discouraging.
I also need to look ahead
I need to keep an eye on my goals. I need to take small steps every day. I need to continue to plan my meals, to eat healthy and to exercise. I cannot focus on the weight gain. I have to keep moving ahead to unlock the mystery that is me.
I hope you all have a great day.
