I was so looking forward to weighing in this week because I worked my ass off. Then I stepped onto the scale...and I seen a half pound gain. I was so disheartened and so disappointed. I know that a half a pound is really nothing and that muscles retain fluid when you begin working out again (seeing as how my workouts have been sporadic since...well Christmas). But it's still so frustrating when you put so much into your goals and you don't seen the evidence of that. I was upset and just ready to give up and I had a bad day of eating yesterday. I even said "me and my diet are fighting right now"...apparently that is an excuse to have fries at lunch, then to split the left over mac & cheese with Chris, then to have not 1 but 2 breaded chicken burgers...I'm pretty embarrassed and ashamed of that. But today will be better and I'm going to continue. I just want so badly to see my 270's by my birthday goal and I'm going to be so disappointed if I don't. I will try my damnedest though!
