Amazing food shall happen today. It shall happen because a good Monday is a state of mind, and because I have been doing this healthy eating (and working out) for a week now. I made it a week, yet, when I stepped on the scale: nothing.
I’m starting to despair. Nothing, really? Yep, nothing. At first I’m really angry because I have been starving, then I think there’s something wrong with the scale so I walk over to the gym and use the scale there. Still nothing. Fine…acceptance – perhaps my weekend was a little more wonderful than I thought. I did eat all-you-can-eat sushi, one of my meals fit on a FULL-sized plate (imagine?!), and I did have frozen yoghurt. So, perhaps that all adds up to nothing, which is good I suppose – at least it is not up.
I’m redoubling my efforts, making sure to weigh and measure every morsel today, and in the meantime also try my best to make my food look colourful and fun.
