Fitness Update - Where I Stand Heading Into the Holidays

I wish I had better news to report, but the reality is I'm really frustrated at the moment. On Friday, November 6th I hit my goal weight. I was so excited! I felt great & yes, I did have a hot chocolate to celebrate a little. I mean, it's red cup season & it was skim milk & I tracked it. 

The problem is.... I stepped on the scale on Monday, November 9th & weighed five pounds more. No joke. I brushed it off & thought to myself there is no way that I gained five pounds from Friday to Monday, especially when I haven't had any fried food or binged. I tried again on Wednesday. Still up 5 pounds. And to this day... I'm still five pounds away from my goal weight. 

So right now, I have no clue what to do. I've thought about buying a new scale because quite honestly I've had this one for awhile & maybe something is wrong with it. I've thought that maybe I'm just stressed - because November 9th is coincidentally the day that winter cheer season started & I made the most progress between seasons. I am also aware that my hormones are still adjusting to their normal levels - and that there is a possibility they'll never go back to where they were before Olivia. I know there are tons of reasons WHY this could be happening, it just doesn't make it any less frustrating. 

So as we head into the holidays, I'm just going to try & relax a little. I'll still get my steps in & I'll still track my food (except on Thanksgiving because duh...) but I'm going to try to let go of that number on the scale & enjoy the season with my family. #screwthescale #bringonthepie
