...and the scale said "HAH"

I am being harassed and laughed at continuously. I am arguing and fighting and yelling and cussing and screaming and laughing at and with the enemy.

Let me tell you about my tormentor. This week I walked forth and back across the Newburgh Beacon Bridge 4 times. I took spin class 4 times. I did 700 crunches, some upper body and lower body weight training. I spent a lot of time being a hot sweaty mess.

I was diligent in my quest to eat healthy foods. Mainly eating fresh veggies and protein. I did everything right....and yet lil miss scale said "hah". as she laughed at my efforts. I didn't lose any pounds but on the bright side, I didn't gain any either.  But that's OK because she can't break my spirits. Sticks and stones may break my bones but that big mouth scale can't hurt me...

What I know for sure is that if I didn't do it, I'd be worse off. I also know that eventually she will have to give in and start lowering her numbers. I will win and have the last laugh. Her victory is only temporary. It means that I have to make an adjustment in my efforts. Either I bump up the intensity or check to make sure I am not over indulging on my portions.

So as I roll my eyes and suck my teeth at the enemy I shall keep pressing on. I have the evil villain look as I plot my revenge.  This round belongs to HER. Tune in to next weeks episode. Let's see who wins!!!
