Woke up this morning and weighed in...only to find my weight has not budged. 😣 It’s frustrating when you’re doing everything you’re supposed to do yet the changes don’t come as quickly as you want them to. For me, I have to be mindful about this. I’m a person who lives in extremes—all or nothing, black or white—and when I don’t see changes I go to this place of, “So why even bother?” I went to that place this morning, but here’s the thing: I know that if I give up today, I’ll regret it. A couple days down the road, I’ll hate myself. I’ll wish I had stuck with it. I know this because it’s what I did over this past summer—something I still regret every day.
I care about fitness. I care about my health. I care about the way I want to feel about my body. Giving up solves nothing. Pushing through the disappointment and frustration will build character, and hopefully, ultimately, the person I want to be.
So no giving up. Instead it’s trusting my coach, continuing to feed my body right, working hard, and being patient. .
Breakfast this morning was a Mocha Protein Waffle (following @’s Waffle recipe) • 2tbs of @onal Maple Syrup • 60g of Banana
