Weighed myself today and I'm paying for the weekend food fest! I didn't plan it that way but this is what happened:

Friday: The one night this weekend I had planned to go wild! Rodizio and drinky-drinks were on the menu for the evening. I was blowing off steam with my BFF and we were gonna say to hell with the diet!

Saturday: Saturday morning was taken over by my overindulging the night before and breakfast was at iHop. At that point I had a bite of a pancake and some hash browns. It was the only thing I could keep down. Saturday night turned into another food fest because I ended up going to dinner with friends and they ordered. Nothing terribly unhealthy/deep fried but just too much food!

Sunday: Lunch we all headed to City Island and had seafood...I love scallops! Since we were all stuffed and didn't want dinner we headed over to hang out at a friend's house and snacked on cheese (uber weakness), wine and pastries.

So what was the common catalyst in this disaster? Lack of self control, my BFF and socializing. I don't know if it means I haven't found my happy medium during the week which is why my body/brain tells me to EAT on the weekends or if I just go hog wild because I can!

It's a puzzle I'm determined to figure out.

    I am sure the drinky-drinks didn't help in food choices, been there! However if you find that you overindulge on the weekend could it be that you are depriving yourself during the week, being too strict? I know that has happened to me before. I eat really well during the week then the weekend comes and it can be a free-for-all. This past weekend I was GUILTY of eating like an oinker BUT I did hit the park for some cardio Sat & Sun. That still doesn't justify the thin 'n crispy veggie pizza I had, I could've done worse but I digress. Anyway, it's all about balance and we will find it fore sure! Good luck!

B*tching Day

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I've been sore for days...

Last week it was my neck/back. Frozen so it limited my range of motion. Today I'm still sore from Saturday's hike.

...and I'm tired because I haven't been getting enough sleep

...and I'm afraid because I need to make a big change in my life

...and I'm lonely - dating scene does not improve as you get older

...and...enough complaining...time to go to the gym!

    Enjoy your time at the gym! It usually makes all things better.

Big changes can be stressful, but they can be good also.

    You're doing it right - being active and staying out there in the world. Though our soreness and fear can make us want to stay at home and hide, the more we get out and "just do it" the better we feel, whether it's exercise, dating, or work-related activity.

Don't Overthink!!!

Friday, April 05, 2013

Woke up this morning with an "Ugh!"

Sat on the edge of the bed with a "I don't want to"

Got on the scale with a "I didn't eat a sensible dinner last night so this won't be good!"

Read the numbers on the scale with a "Woohoo!"

Heading to the gym with a "Bring it On!"

Good Friday

Friday, March 29, 2013

Just a quick blog about my day. Had my nutritious pre-workout snack, a protein shake for breakfast after kickboxing and then lunch with a friend at Baja Fresh. Nothing friend...all tasty! Tonight I plan on having a salad to to get the rest of my veggie servings in for a the day.

With the increase in my exercise I need to start consuming more calories..healthy fruit and veggies ones though.

Angel vs. Devil

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Going into Week to of unemployed and trying to keep my spirits up by focusing on exercising and learning some new healthy recipes (can't say I don't have the time! lol).

I've noticed over time that my trend is to eat like an angel during the week and then I go hog wild on the weekends! I can't seem to just have one "bad" meal and go back to eating 'good' for the rest of the day like others.

Going to keep working on finding that balance...

    I will soon be joining the unemployment line too as the office where I work is closing...I want to go back to school and try something new. I'm not worried about going back to old habits, I tend to snack and eat less when I'm home so I think it will be better for me...Good luck to you! Stay strong! emoticon
