Rough Week

Monday, August 22, 2011

This has been a particularly rough week tracking, exercising, and staying on my calories. I guess I just haven't been feelin it this week. Although, I feel incredibly guilty for the poor choices that I have made.

I haven't been eating every 4 hours, so when I'm hungry I am definitely making poor food choices and overindulging. I haven't been exercising and I've been making up excuses as to why I can't.

I have been doing really well the past few weeks, but to be honest I am terrified to weigh in on Wednesday. Any weight I gain will totally be understandably and am hoping it will jump start my motivation to get back on track next week.

It sucks when you know you've been doing bad, and you just give up the rest of the week because of it. I know that I can do better than this. I want to lose the weight, and I want to reach my goals.

Everyone says that "bad" weeks are all part of the journey, I guess

I'll take the good with the bad, and hopefully in the end the good will win.

I just need to remind myself that I am human, but I also need to stop making excuses for myself. Excuses are not going to get me where I want to be.

On a positive note, I am still here and I feel an overwhelming gratitude for the support I've received on Spark.

Wednesday starts are new week, and I will continue to rock on with my bad self and get back on track. Remember from my previous blogs, I have to be a fighter and I have the greatest motivation of all, my children. emoticon

    I am really, really trying to keep a mindset of "one day at a time." If I do poorly one day, that doesn't mean I can't start over the next day. In fact, I'm even trying to take it "one choice at a time." If I binge and eat a few more cookies than I probably should, I really try to not let it become an excuse to overeat the rest of the day.

    One bad choice doesn't ruin a day. One bad day doesn't ruin a week. One bad week doesn't ruin a goal of losing weight. Just keep trying, you are worth it!!!

    I think it's going around. I'm doing okay on the food but I cannot seem to get into the exercise routine I need to in order to make a difference.

Hopefully, it will pass and next week we'll all be back to our Sparkly selves.

Good Luck!
