what a set-back, but ... no I WON'T GIVE UP!

March 3, 2010

Ok, yesterday ended with a disappointment, a big one. I was good all day, I went to the gym after work and did interval training on the elliptical for 40 minutes. I was all sweaty and felt so good and satisfied! Then I went home, I ate what I should (cheakpeas and chicken breast) and then ... I heard something calling my name from the fridge! I knew I should have left the kitchen right after I had finished my meal. But NO! I wanted to respond to the calling, a delicious chocolate cake with white chocolate on top. And what was the result? An awful feeling afterwards, it was a mix of disappointment, failure, and physical discomfort. And then tears came to my eyes once again.

So, one day lost. But, I won't let it win. I won't lose (the fight, because I want to lose pounds!). Today, I woke up early and went to the gym before work to lift some weights. I'm planning to go after work too, for an interval trianing session. And then for dinner I have a plan: I'll take my plate and leave the kitchen, I'll go to my room and eat there, then, immediately after I finish eating, I'll brush my teeth and ONLY THEN will I enter the kitchen again to do the dishes.

I promise that I'll do what I mentioned above. I refuse to have another night of crying because I wasn't strong enough, because I gave into temptation. Monday was good, Tuesday was bad, but Wednesday will be better, better than Monday that is!

What I have to realise is that the first week will probably be difficult, because, yes, I'm addicted to sugar, that's no secret. But I want to believe that I am stronger than sugar!

Actually, I've come to believe that weightloss is a mental thing. I know everything I need to know in order to lose weight. I know what I should eat and what I should avoid. I know I need to exercise, to eat right, to drink water. I know all these things and yet I haven't lost a pound and of course this is because I lack the necessary determination, or to better put it, I lacked.

To conclude, a new day, a new begining, a new chance to do a good thing for Phoebe. I lost yesterday's fight, but I didn't lose the war!

Good day to everyone who reads this!!!

  Hey BLEBJO! thanks for the comment! So I'm not the only one who thinks that it's better to not eat in the kitchen! The problem with me is that I plan ahead, I eat according to the plan ... and then I eat some more (and the extra food is usually something sugary or fatty). But today I'll be good, I don't have anymore time to waste!

    You can do it! Getting off the sugar train is hard. I've tried it, and didn't feel so good the first few days. I find that planning ahead when it comes to meals and snacks is working well, and I always bring my food out of the kitchen. I eat in the living room instead.
