Wah wah wah…
It also means no pizza (or donuts) at work since I’ve recognized that those are triggers that lead me in the path of all that’s carbs and sugar.
Something that I am proud of is that even when I know the scale will show a gain, I’ve never not stepped on it. I hold myself accountable for both the good & bad. I do wish I could get back to the good days though.
Have a great Monday everyone!
P.S. The Chocolate Macadamia Nut Kona coffee is AMAZING! You all need to try it.
One of the great things about tracking (when I actually do it) is that I can see & recognize any behaviors or triggers that may lead me away from my long term goal of being fit & healthy.
I seem to do really good on Monday through Wednesday morning. Wednesday night I become a snack monster and I try to get back in control on Thursday only to fuck it up on Friday which bleeds into the weekend. Then I start all over again in this pointless cycle.
I think I’ve found the culprits. Wednesday it’s pizza day at work & on Friday mornings we get donuts. Yesterday I had a healthy breakfast & snack and then two slices of pizza. They filled me up but didn’t really satisfy me. Then the snack monster was happily out & about.
The point of this post is to say that I won’t be having pizza or a donut at work anymore. The only thing these heavy carb & sugar foods do to my body is make it crave more carbs and sugars.
Have a weird sunburn on my hands & my arms as a souvenir from yesterday’s game.
3 pound gain. What did I expect when I treated the whole week as a cheat meal.
Forgot my lunch at home.
Drove back to get lunch & checked to make sure my flat iron was turned off. Lunch was still forgotten.
I’m blessed with the life I have if these are my problems. Hope everyone has a terrific Monday.
I know I shouldn’t have done it since my weigh-in day isn’t until Monday but I got on the scale this morning and surprise! If you make good choices & track your food you will lose weight.
Does that mean I can take it easy & let loose the next three days? I don’t think so. It means to keep doing what I’ve been doing the past four days so that my weigh-in will exceed my expectations.
Pants are starting to feel not as tight and I have some pep in my step. Saying no to myself when I want something that I know I shouldn’t has been easier than previous weeks. Glancing at my anchor (my Do Life tattoo) has really helped me as well.
Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend. It’s supposed to be in the high 80’s here. Whooo hooo!
In April I:
Ran some miles & completed my first half marathon.
Felt miserable & uncomfortable due to the horrible food choices I made.
Realized (again) that it isn’t about what I eat. It’s about changing my behaviors and how I view food.
Worked on setting a budget.
Plan for May:
Run some miles.
Work on changing behaviors by reaching out (WW meetings).
Be kind, rewind. Whenever I have doubts or feel like I’m going in the wrong direction, take a moment to look back and remind myself of what I have accomplished.
