Confession time: I was dreading today's weigh in. I've been seriously slacking on my nutrition and I haven't been as amped about my workouts lately, and my weight and measurements reflected that today. I back pedaled a bit and gained back most of what I lost in the first 15 days. My fit test scores were better, but I think a lot of that was because I was mad at myself for letting my nutrition slide and I was punishing myself.
I could take these results one of two ways:
Option 1: Whine, complain and give up. Say "it's too hard," or, "I'm just not ready," or "I don't know how to fix this." and just quit.
Option 2: Realize that I slacked and I need to get back in gear if I want to see any real progress.
I spent a good chunk of today seriously considering option 1. The problem was that I can't. I can't give up knowing that I'm fully capable. Giving up with simple be the easy, lazy option and I can't do that. I made a commitment to y'all, to my boys, and most importantly to myself. I will not give up on myself just because things aren't going the way I had planned. I'm not getting the results I wanted because I'm not putting in the work like I need to! I have no one to blame but myself and I can absolutely do this.
Today, I will focus on the small wins, the places where I did still manage to lose, and the rocking fit test scores and I will spend the next 15 days getting my nutrition back on track so that by day 45 I'll be where I should be!
