I'm just feeling gross about myself today.
I've made great choices all week. Today I had a light fruit and yogurt breakfast, hit the gym for a 60 minute cardio workout and had a fresh and healthy lunch at extreme pita.
I went to a movie with my boyfriend, stayed far, far away from any snacks, and at dinner I had a half order of pot stickers for a treat. Then, instead of ordering the steak sandwich and Caesar salad that I decided I would splurge on, I changed my mind at the last minute and had a spinach salad with shrimp, avocado, goat cheese, apples, and tomatoes - no dressing. And then I only ate half of it, and brought the rest home for lunch tomorrow.
By all accounts, I should feel great about myself today!
But I don't. I feel fat. I'm tired. I feel anxious, and even though I'm pleased with my results so far, I'm not seeing any change in my body. I've been taking weekly photos and nothing. I see nothing. Yes, it's not even been a month yet, and my 7 lb loss so far is great, but I feel a bit like I'm two steps up a giant staircase, and I'll never get to the top. I've got a mountain to climb, and I just wish I looked a *little bit* slimmer. Even if I'm the only person who could see it.
Do you ever feel like this? How do you get past it? I know better than to get discouraged and quit, but still...I'm just not feeling great about my progress today.
