Week 4: Getting Over the Hump
I'm going to be honest. I'm not really happy with these progress pics. I thought of not posting. But really....what does that accomplish right??? I made a commitment to myself to post pics every 2 weeks, even if no one out there reads this.
So here we go....
The one on the left is from 7/10/15 and the one on the right is from this morning, 7/24/15.
This is where it gets hard.
This is where I look in the mirror and I get frustrated.
Not because I'm not working hard or liking how far I have come along, but because every, let's say 4 weeks ;), I carry more water than usual. My clothes fit just a bit tighter than usual and that "UGH!!! Why am I even doing this if this is what is going to happen!?!?!" sets in.
Well, I know why.
I know that within a week the extra water weight will be gone and I will have gotten even closer to my goal.
I know that this frustration, as long as I keep on track, is a temporary thing.
And I know that it's a mind game. One that can take over your life if you let it.
This is one of the issues I do have to help my female clients with. They will be working their a$$ off (literally) and are doing a great job with their nutrition, but that pesky little week comes around and a lot of their drive goes out the window. They see only the image at that particular moment, not how far they have come.
So my advice is DON'T LET THIS WEEK GET TO YOU!
Let that 1 week a month go.
Keep working hard and keep moving forward!
