I have been really struggling to get back on track since the holiday season, but I started this week off great. Monday and Tuesday were great - I actually ended each day at the bottom of my calorie range & worked out more than scheduled. Wednesday I didn't get home until pretty late, so I gave myself the night off - but I still hit the low end of my calories. Thursday I was really tired - so I gave myself the night off, knowing that I only had a half day on Friday and could get in a great workout Friday afternoon - but then I didn't.

Starting with a planned breakfast treat Friday morning, I didn't stick to plan the rest of the day - though I made good choices when I went off my plan - I was still off my plan. Which would have been fine if I had gone ahead and worked out and/or put myself back on track Saturday - but no. Every excuse that was even remotely hinted at - in my own head - I jumped on with both feet.

End result - on Wednesday morning I was showing a 5 lb. loss - scale today says -.02. All that great work early in the week, completely undone by excuses over the weekend. GAAAH!

    I read on somebody else's blog this week something to the effect of "progress, not perfection." That I can deal with. You ARE making progress, just don't let yourself get discouraged and give up!
