But on to the weigh-in. I didn't make it to the gym today, not because I didn't want to go but because it was so busy at work today that I didn't even get a break. I probably could have stayed a bit later than I did, but not getting a lunch break meant after-work errands and I wanted to get home in good time. Though I think a break from the gym was good for me; my muscles are a bit sore from weights yesterday and my shins were a bit achy (I've been stretching a lot because I really want to keep my running up!).
Tonight, the scale looked up at me and said 193.6 lb. That's 0.8 lb down from last week (yay!) but still not the 190.2 lb that will get me a book (boo). It's also not where I wanted to be but at least the number is going the right way.
I know I can do this and I have to really work at not getting frustrated. I also have to really work at making better choices and - this is most important - watching my portion sizes. I've mentioned this before and I'm still not doing what I need to do. But I am getting more vegetables and I've actually discovered I enjoy some fruit!
So I'll keep trying.
(Hm...can I blame the not-much weight loss on weight gain due to muscle gain? Somehow I think that's wishful thinking!)
