Dragging- Brooke

You are welcome Katie! I'm glad that tip helped. Don't let your weekend derail you, just get back at it.

I am literally having to drag myself to workout this week. I had to give myself a little pep talk last night. The talk went something like this.

 I don't want to work out. Blech! I know you don't. I feel so weary and it's already 10:30pm. I just want to go to bed. Well exercise might make you feel better. I know it makes you nicer to everyone else. I know, I know!! Maybe do one of your other videos. Yea I think I will dust off my VHS of Mina. I haven't done that one in years.  Okay so I'll just go get my workout clothes on and strap on my shoes.

 So I did it but I felt like a bumbling idiot the whole time because Chad was watching and he made comments about the blond on the video looking like a big ape marching in place and swinging her arms. I thought maybe he was saying things like that about me but just in his head. A little frustrating but I made it.

I'm feeling the same frustration as Mom with the huge fluctuations in the daily scale reading. How can you gain 4 pounds in one day and lose half of it overnight?

I have been browsing a site called  his transformation is inspiring!! I want to be healthy!!! I want to be more muscle than fat!! I just have to keep dragging myself one day at a time and I will make it eventually!

Courage to all of you.


  1. My scale just stares back up at me with the SAME FREAKING NUMBER!!! one morning it'll be 152.9... the next 152.5 the next 152.7 and then 152.2 and we start right back we began. Sigh. No real progress! Next time make Chad do the dvd with you! Katie

  2. Brooke, did you read the article about weighing every day on "Eat to Live Light"? It had helpful insight as to why it fluctuates so much - and gave tips for not letting yourself gain. The other article (which I cannot locate - grrr) said to graph your daily weights to determine the overall progression. I will have to check out the fat guy site - sounds good. Also - good job on working through the grumps, slumps and blechs! Every day will not be this way. Love you! Mom
