So I finally weighed myself after over a month today, as to be honest I was very nervous about what the scales would say
So, it turns out I have gained 5lbs over the last month.
I’ve been back on track this week too so it’s likely to have been more than that tbh.
I have to admit, I did have a little cry when I saw the number as it was gutting
But then I realised that actually what the scales don’t show, is WHY I’ve gained weight; I slipped a bloody disc in my back, I was in a job that made me miserable, I lost my beautiful nana, I then left my job and ya know, there’s been a global pandemic
So, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not that bad really! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not happy about it but we are NOT robots, we’re human beings and none of us are perfect! Anyone who says they’ve never had a bump in their weight loss journey is pretty much certainly bullshitting you
Don’t let instagram let you believe that anyone’s journey is perfect, and that you’re any less successful because you’re not doing 20,000 steps every single day with 7 workouts a week, whilst being positive blimin Polly 24/7 and God forbid should you dare eat a slice of pizza! IT IS BULL SHIT.
Progress is not linear, you are meant to live your live and frankly there will be bumps in the road! Life happens and set backs are part and parcel of that but it’s how you respond that matters Focus on one day at a time
Today is a new day, so I’m going to keep it simple and just get back to doing the things I know work, that I can achieve and that help me feel good: lots of water, satisfying foods, some steps, and hitting the gym. Slow and steady wins the race angels, and I’m back in the saddle
