#Mamavation Monday - Breaking The Scale
I have to remind myself that when my super awesome coach posts pictures like this on Facebook that he doesn't really hate me. lol - I'm preparing for a thruster. What you would see next is me having to squat my butt down to that red ball and stand up again while raising that bar over my head. That's why I look like I'm in complete focus mode. It's a lot of movements for an obese woman. Yep, that's right. Even with this photo the numbers will tell you that I am clearly in the obese range. It sucks but it is what it is and I'm still a work in progress. For the past week I have been putting nothing but crap in my body. Yesterday was the worst and I felt all of it today during my work out. So tomorrow I am back on the Whole 30/Paleo plan again because I have also gained all of the weight back that I lost at the beginning of the year. It's all freaking diet!
I was watching an Insanity Work out infomercial. I work out 5-6 days a week. I work hard and some days I do more. Some days I work out twice a day and I mix it up and I sweat like crazy! It's gross but you know it's all just water weight. Sucks! But then they tack on the whole nutrition part and how you should eat 5 meals a day. If you look at another diet they will tell you to count your calories etc., I know what I need to do but I just didn't do it for more than a month. It's all about what you put in your body! Ugh... Why can't I just be a fat burning machine without taking a bunch of crap to get me there? On with the results...
Eating out: Chick-fil-a

Scale Reading- 170 which is a huge gain - 6 pounds. I'm not proud. Don't tell me it's muscle. lol - I have a scale that reads BMI, water weight and all that fun stuff. It's just sugar from those cokes I drank, those Doritos and that birthday cake oh let me not forget the ice cream.
Stress Level -Very high....it's always high, I wonder if that is why my mid section stays large. I can lose in all other spots but there. Unless I omit all grains from diet oh and dairy too!
The UP side - Fitcation is coming!
Injury prevention is important!
Be a good role model. A special reminder for us all...
