Ugly Monster

I'm not trying to lose weight. I've been in what I feel is my perfect weight range for quite some time. But there is a part of me that is so frustrated. There is that STUPID number in my head that I want to be. That STUPID number that I am ALWAYS telling ya'll to ignore; and it's haunting me. That STUPID number is at the bottom of my ideal weight range and it's not far from where I am {we are talking 3 pounds, 5 pounds MAX}. I think that's part of why I'm so frustrated.

I have been avoiding the scale more than usual {typically I only weigh in once a week, now it's more like 3-4 weeks}. For me that's probably a good thing right now though; I know my limits and my weaknesses and it would be stupid to let them get the better of me. But I'm frustrated that this inner demon has decided to rear it's ugly head.

So I have been trying to strategize a little bit. I NEED to do my strength training workouts. I need to change things up. I honestly haven't done a strength training workout since April 1st. Before that was March 16. YIKES!! {There's an eye opener for me} So. The plan is to get in all my strength training workouts THIS WEEK. I'm not looking past this week.

All the while I am going to be watching over my shoulder for that feisty beast. Wish me luck!

ha! that ugly monster is sitting right on my shoulder reminding me EVERY DAY! And every time I think I've lost him... I see a picture of my old (aka prebaby) self and a picture of my self now.. hello monster! Man, kids and age do a number on our bodies eh? but it's nice to know that someone as fit and tiny as you are still struggles with that ugly monster too! :-)
