Stuck in Suckville

I’ll apologize in advance for the boringness of this post. But I just don’t have a lot to say. (Shocking, right?)

Total steps: 91, 108. Waaaaay down from last week, but still very respectable at 13k steps per day. I walked every day and racked up 32 miles. Nice.

The biggest improvement is that I lifted weights twice – yay! I’m not going to push my luck, so I’m just hoping for a repeat performance this week.

I burned 2239 calories/day and I consumed 1948. That should have netted me about a half pound loss. But yeah, I woke up yesterday and I weighed a pound more than I did the week before. Suckville. Today looked different though, so I’m hoping I’m pissing out the retained water and soon I won’t want to throw the scale across the bathroom. I don’t like being stuck. Not a fan at all.

Dramatic much?

Anyway, I’mĀ noticing that my confidence is struggling, and I’m trying so hard to consider the reasons why. It could just be a hormonal issue. Next week, I’ll feel like a million bucks. Being a woman is an emotional rollercoaster. I suspect it’s a lot of things: launching a coaching service and creating a whole set of journaling exercises is scary. I put my heart and soul into everything I do, and of course I want it to be successful! I want to help the most amount of people. So it’s natural to have some anxiety about the whole thing. And anxiety translates to self-doubt and fear. But I’m working on it. And I’m surrounded by some pretty incredible and supportive people. Things are gonna be juuuuuuuuust fine.

Because I spent the majority of my week on my computer working my ass off, it seems appropriate that I show you an image of that.

Exciting, right?

Well, this next bit is. (At least for my family!) My girl is following in my (childhood) footsteps and getting a taste of the theatre! She completed her first camp on Friday with a little performance. This week she began the second part of her camp that’ll go the entire month. She’s so excited and I can’t wait to see how things go for her. She is so much like her mama – she loves an audience. But she has a confidence about her that I only wish I’d had at her age. She is going to do BIG things in life.

So that is all my news for the week. Not every week can be sunshine and rainbows! (Although I do live in a tropical paradise, so I always get to experience a little of both of those.)
