I put effort into my fitness goals this week, like I always do. I did some kind of exercise everyday, like I always do. I ate whole nutritious foods most of the time, like I always do. I drank lots of water, like I always do. But the scale remained the same. I’m not thrilled. But I’m not upset. I’ve been down this road many times before. I’ve said it 1million times. The window of opportunity for weight loss is very narrow. I know I ate too many raw almonds. I know that extra large bowl of oatmeal didn’t help. I know I could haves upped my intensity when I did cardio. I know I can come up with lots of excuses. I was busy! My mom is sick! It snowed this week. I know I just need to try harder. I heard Earth, Wind and Fire’s hit song from the 70’s on the way to the gym this morning,
“You’re a shinig star, no matter who you are. Shining bright to see what you can truly be.”
I know I need to try harder to get to where I want to be! I know I can do it! It might not be happening as quickly as I want! But I know it will happen! Everyday is a chance to begin again!
