Weekly Weigh-in...Week 4

There will be no shouting from the mountain top this week. Today was our weekly weigh-in. A day early but that hardly matters. I gained this week. ONE POUND. One stinking lousy pound. One more pound that I now have to take off. To be honest with you, I was expecting it. I got the ungracious visitor this week. She always brings way to much baggage with her...bloating, mood swings, loss of sleep, water retention...the list goes on and on.

There were other issues as well. I didn't work out but only once this past week. I ate fairly well, but was over my allotted calories for Wednesday and under my calories for the two days prior. There wasn't a ton of food preparation going on either.

I have been thinking a lot this week about excuses. I'm certainly a pro at making them. I can always seem to find a reason (ie., excuse) NOT to exercise or eat right. Housework to do, a meeting to prep for, a meeting to attend, grocery shopping, too tired, that cheeseburger was calling my name, just plain don't want to, the ungracious get the point. I am an A+ excuse maker, maybe that is why I never reached my goals.

"I attribute my success to this:I never gave or took an excuse." ~ Florence Nightingale 
"We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse." ~ Rudyard Kipling
I know that I don't want to fail, so I have got to stop making excuses. I have got to make the time and do what needs to be done. And maybe next week, I'll be shouting from the mountain top again.
