This week feels so weird. Maybe because we traveled last week or because the hubs is gone for a few days this week also… I don’t know. Either way, it just feels weird this week.
Today is Weigh In Wednesday and while I don’t have much to report in the way of numbers on the scale. After our trip to Texas last week I was actually up 3lbs, but came back down to 186.8 as of this morning. I’ve been around 185-186 for the last few weeks. Even though I know better it will always be a bit disappointing not to see the scale move. It does, however, make me all the more thankful for other signs of progress when they come. I take progress pictures often. Sometimes I find it harder to see changes than others. Here is one of the most recent comparisons…
I can see my whole midsection area has gotten smaller, as well as my upper arm. I wish I had a more dramatic picture, but results are results no matter how small!
On top of that I’ve been seeing some massive performance improvements. There have been several times this week I have really surprised myself with my performance. I jumped up on the rope and was able to actually climb up a ways, a few weeks ago holding on was a struggle. Today I did my first ever legit Toes2Bar. I jokingly tried it and actually did it! I was shocked. These are things I’ve struggled with for the longest time and now I’m finally seeing them happen! Those are things I can get excited about! Now if I can just get more consistent with my pull ups and work on my handstand push ups… and then on to muscle ups! Bring it on!
This week I’m planning on staying on point trying to make up for lost ground from our Texas trip. Which wasn’t really lost ground, it was a prescribed “refeed” to shock my system. My coach also changed up my macros on a few days increasing protein and decreasing carbs. I can’t wait for my check in next week to see where I’m at. In the meantime, I’ll keep surprising myself!
When was the last time you surprised yourself?
