The Tuesday Morning Weight Loss Tune Up


“Going back to basics strengthens your foundation” – An Iola of Truth


Before I headed to the scale I stopped at the counter in my bathroom and picked up the grapefruit essential oil I had set out the night before. I read a few articles saying that grapefruit essential oil could help weight loss and I thought I would give it a try.  The articles also said the oil could support the lymphatic system and like many overweight individuals, I have struggled with my sluggish lymphatic system for years.  I put a few drops of the grapefruit oil on before I started my dry brushing ritual.  Within minutes I found myself in the bathroom and I feel optimistic that the grapefruit oil helped!

As I approached the scale, I found myself talking to her like she was an old long, lost friend.  It’s been 3 days since I’ve stepped on you and it’s been odd without you.   I did the best I could while traveling with a ten-year-old boy and I hope it shows when I step on.

Before I step on the scale, I want to share a non- scale victory with you. I asked a stranger to take a picture of Drew and me on the beach! I was so proud of myself because for the last 16 years I have run from the camera when I’ve been in my bathing suit.  I feel like I learned my lesson from that terrible confession I told you about in Why.  I was standing on the beach beaming from ear to ear with pride and with my arm around my little guy when I saw it – the boogie board.  The perfect prop I needed to cover up my enemy I told you about in the Pursuit of Ketosis- Day 4.  Don’t you wish it could be that easy and we could all just cover up our tummy fat?

Hiding my Tummy at the Beach

When I finally stepped on the scale, it showed I weigh precisely what I weighed one week ago today.

Before I could form an opinion about the scales findings, the inner sales manager in me surfaced and she is relentless and has extremely high expectations.   She’s cordial for a moment and recognizes that I had a lovely beach vacation with my Son but quickly wants to transition into the plan lose weight this week.

My inner sales manager and I came to an agreement on the following plan for the week.

Return to the Pursuit of Ketosis for 4 days

Walk 60 minutes at least 5 days a week

Lift weights twice this week

Yoga at least once this week

and until next time, no alcohol

How about you?  What is your plan for the week?
