Week 4 Weight Loss- Disbelief

I checked 3 times and the scale did not lie: 6.1 pound loss for this week.

I am in disbelief. I did not make all the targets that I set for myself:
I did not drink water every morning when I woke up. I did about half the time.
I only worked out 3 out of 7 days this week. PA Calories were under 2000 :(
I did not keep in 3+2+5.
I did not keep in the box (within my food plan). I had to have a taste of the brownie. I had to have a little dip on my veggies. I did dip in the guacamole. Dang Super bowl!
Ethel is making her mark. She is angry and bloated and wants to make her presence known. She seems to have gained back her girth from last week.

So, when is the other shoe going to drop? I feel guilty as I did not do the work to support the number. I am very mixed in my feelings. I know that getting something for nothing is the attitude that got me to this size in the first place. So, in addition to my regular commitment, I am going to set a few more goals:

1. Add 1 more set of at least 3 exercises. Continue to do my weight training 2X’s this week.
2. Drink more water and eliminate diet soda’s this week.
3. Get to sleep by 10:30 each night this week.

Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful and Lord knows that I need to lose, lose, lose! However, if don’t feel like I earned it, I am not going to get very far.

Missa, you are still on the hook!
