Ahhh yesss. . . directions. We hire trainers to tell us what to do. At some point we all don't follow directions.
I have been doing EVERYTHING exactly as Tony was telling me. But I was super zealous and he said I was doing too much cardio. ARG! Stop doing so much CARDIO?!! that is a hard thing to listen to, it would have been easier for him to say no more oatmeal in the morning seriously!
And my period started on the Sunday I was going to weigh in. Tony and I talked and he said don't get on the scale 'til 2 or 3 days AFTER your cycle is FINISHED . I stepped on the scale yesterday my weight said 136.7 . .looked like I had basically lost nothing in the last 2 weeks . . .
I posted in my journal at M&F Hers :
"In the last 2 weeks I have only lost 0.7lbs . . so basically nothing . . cuz that is just a minor body fluctuation. I have yet to take my jeans progress pics, they may fit a bit better, cuz weight is not everything all the time. I am stressed about being stressed and not losing weight and then sitting around not exercising has me stressed that I am not doing anything to fix my problem, but that is the problem I am stressed and need to take a break from being stressed. .. it is not only stress it is emotional anguish I guess.. I have been having a lot of dreams, and flash backs to that last day in the hospital . . and then the body in the funeral home. . so far beyond anything I have ever experienced in my life . Many emotional stages to go thru and the family feud and unsettled estate and bills piling up is not helping at all. "
I stepped on the scale today, which if I had listened to Tony I would have avoided it until now . . 134.5 !! The scale DID move!! yay! So I have lost 8lbs in the past 4 weeks! Things WILL work if you follow directions. We pay them to think for us, I must remember that.
