What a Weak Week!

The day to end my seventh week out and the scale let me down. I weighed in at 118lb. and I'm hoping, really hoping that it's just tons of water weight. I have been bloated this week and for a good reason. Our bodies surprise us at certain times of the month, if you know what I mean? I wasn't expecting three pounds extra though. One or two pounds, I can deal with but three has hit me pretty hard. Nothing changed with my diet or training I did everything the same and absolutely have not cheated. I've worked too hard thus far but times like this make me wonder if I'll be show worthy. I'm far from the perfect physique but my expectations are pretty high. I definitely need to be much leaner than I am now before I even think about strutting across a stage. I'm not sure what to do about not stressing over it. Deke told me not to worry, to avoid the scales until next Wednesday. My husband says I'll probably go right back down to where I was in a week. I'm supposed to avoid stress which so far I've done a pretty good job at. I have been really weak and unmotivated this entire week. I have taken several naps which is not typical. I hope the next few days are better and hope that I regain more energy. It's hard to describe the emotions I'm feeling right now. It's almost overwhelming but Deke says its just part of the mental battle. Nonetheless, I am ready to get ripped and shed these last few pounds. Wow! I can't believe I have six weeks to go!!

Don't be so hard on yourself. You look GREAT and 6 weeks is still a lot of time for things to happen. We are always our own worst critics though...believe me I know ;)All you can do is give it your all and see where it takes you. So keep on trucking.

Thanks Christina I really appreciate your thoughts! I am certainly my own worst critic, no doubt but I'm on the up and up. I'm looking forward to starting a new week and coming out stronger!
