Why are the Numbers Going UP???

Ok, I actually know why.  But it’s still frustrating.

I like to think I’m eating relatively healthy – but I’m not.  I’ve had the “if I exercise this much, that’s this treat, or that treat  in calories” mindset.

Add grief and sadness and being lost in a hole, and you have a mom who’s making dinner with the phone instead of cooking.

Fast food is easier than making a sandwich.

Plus I’m putting on muscle.  Eating fat foods, putting on muscle, not drinking enough water.

And as a result, I didn’t pass my skills test.

I’ll pass next time.  I passed so much of it – but the hardest part has always been endurance for me.

This time – fatigue killed any extra endurance I may have found and I wasn’t bouncy enough for some of the skills (knees were locked)

It’s all related to the fuel I’ve been putting in my body… and now it’s time to look at that.

I am not my scale.  I am more than that – the clothes fit differently, I move differently, I look differently… somehow I get stuck on a scale though.
