The good the bad and the chubby...

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Okay so, I was BAD and I'm coming clean about it, because hiding things like that make them easier to do.

So, last week I was at the boyfriends. I DID go for: 1 walk, and weight trained 1 day (and worked up a sweat which is good)
BUT I also ate bad things. I let him order for me one night when we went out for a date- which was nice because this isn't a thing we do often- and he got me a burger- A BURGER with cheese and all sorts of things on it and it was good, it WAS, but really, come on, is it necessary? Sure, one night isn't going to kill me and it was a GREAT night, we went to see Toy Story 3 3d and it was great- so nice! He's such a nice boy.
But, then the next day we had sushi- which is okay- then Italian subs, and ice cream and oh my lord did I go off the diet!
In the grand scheme of things, I didn't go off so bad that I ate the same amount I would eat before this diet- BUT I still disappointed myself.
That Saturday, I had a family party, where once again, I ate like an oink oink.
Sunday was OKAY not too good not too bad, slowly getting back into the realm of eating like a normal person thing...
Last night, was my brothers birthday dinner- and I don't even want to talk about it!

I gained a few lbs, but I've been at the gym for 2 hours today (1 hour with personal trainer, one hour alone, and she said it would be okay for me to come back later tonight to do another hour with my mama if I feel up to it.)

So, yeah. I was bad. But the good thing about actually paying for a gym is that I can't go "Oh I failed this week so I fail forever and forget it" because there is my personal trainer texting me asking me when I'm coming in, and the gym keytag on my keys, and the cars that have my gym's logo on their bumper stickers, so I go back and fix my eating.

So I'm not beating myself up exactly- just coming clean.

SO in other news

Has anyone who is actually reading this nonsense and gotten this far had an issue where their feet go numb on the elliptical?
I have some nerve damage in my back and neck but jeeze oh pete the only time I have the issue of the sleeping feet is on the elliptical!

Also, I still think I am the bomb, I just fizzled a little bit last week.

    Use this time as a learning experience and try to plan ahead to make better choices in the future. This lifestyle is a choice and only you can stick with it. Not everyday is perfect but have a serious chat with your bf and tell him you want to be healthy and ask him to help you find better food situations. I am sure he cares for you so much he will do whatever he can to help you and you will both benefit. Congrats for wanting to make changes and keep it up. The rewards are worth it.

    Well that's cool...everyone falls off every now and then the difference is the correction...and you have already started the correction...its like before like you said we would say oh well I've failed for life and just forget it...I know exactly that feeling..that's how I was before I got serious...but now when I binge...and then the next day mess up too..then the 3rd day oops...I put my foot down before too long and get right. You are still the bomb! lol...and feet go numb on the elliptical and the bike when I'm on there too long... I don't have any nerve or back problems..I think that's just what happens, I've heard other people ask about it too.

    Remember this:
    There is no such thing as a 'diet' that will last. Just make better choices. Eat less of the bad things and more of the good things and be more active. You're still better off than you were before you started this, and you're still made of awesome.
