I've had a really stressful, emotional week.
All self induced of course by the UNMOVING scale so I thought... well, my clothes are getting too big and Banana Republic is having a 40% off sale, I can prove that things beside the scale are changing! So, I mosied on over there because I was sure, absolutely sure I would be a solid 12. eh, nah. i wasn't. I'm currently in between dress pant sizes. and dresses, forget about it! still a solid 14. frick! so I left, crying. I cant remember the last time I cried at a store. I've been working hard to not let the dress number bother me but last night it was all too much.
I still went to the gym, although I mixed up locations and instead of being able to attend the 6 o'clock spin, I just hopped on the StairMaster and did 45 minutes of that instead.
came home, still feeling sorry for myself and watched the TBL, where all of a sudden I felt silly. REALLY?! I'm upset because the scale isn't moving and I can't fit into size 12 pants, yet. What would I do if my entire family died in a car crash or if I had had a junky mother and ended up living in foster care?!
Seriously... my problems, are trivial in the grand scheme of things.
and today, I feel better. I did a quick search through the WW boards regarding plateaus etc. and although I wasn't really satisfied with the majority of conversations however I did find this comment about (and I'm rephrasing it) how a plateau is a time where you decide that those changes you have made are worth sticking with or if what you have been doing (to lose weight) was all a fad, and that those who make it through this are those who will keep the weight off and have an easier time maintaining.
The reality is, I haven't been off course or binging or any of that (I know I can't believe it either), and I just have to get through this time.
I switched up my workout again this week. I had been doing resistance training and on Tuesday I replaced it with Jillian Michael's "Winning by Losing". My third time on her fitness routine, and it is tough! Holy moly... I've been sore since Saturday. Strike! always gets me and now with Jillian, I'm just not letting up. I've been sleeping so deep this past week that hopefully something is moving!
I'm still in shock! I had wanted to go darker for the fall but damn... my NATURAL color!? Nate didn't even know this was as close to my natural color as I've ever gotten!
oh well... it least it's not permanent. It is supposed to get lighter. Iza did feel bad and offered to add highlights next week if I wanted them...we'll see...
Have a good one peeps, tomorrow is Friday!
