I've been really struggling this week. My girlfriend has hardly been at home because of university work and in the evenings I've been bored. I'm so tempted to eat. I convince myself that I'm hungry and get hunger pangs but I know that it's just boredom.
I've also worked out that one of the reasons that I lost so much last week was because I was on a course and didn't have my usual supply of fruit to hand. This means that I must be eating far too much fruit during the day and it's slowing down my loses. I know you should have 5 portions of fruit and vegetables so I'll be having this much but no more.
I need to keep the loses going to keep me motivated. I also should workout this evening when I get home but I know it's going to be at least 6:30pm before I get home meaning that if I workout it'll probably be after 8pm before I eat dinner. The workout is also going to be hard. I know this because it's the same one that I did last night. 3 sets of pushups, squats, front lunges, side lunges, front lunges with a twist, back lunges, arnold presses, upright rows, bent over tricep extensions and bicep curls. It's a REALLY hard workout. I'm just so tired after a long day. I know when I get home I'll make the decision either way so I'm not going to say now.
I have to remember that I'm not going to be making the same loses every week. 4lbs last week was amazing but I have to remember that this probably won't be the same this week. As long as I keep on losing something, I'll be happy.
I've had 3 compliments this week from people saying how good I'm looking with my weight loss and how well I'm doing. It just makes me glad that they can't see the struggle going on in my head. I LOVE snacks. Mostly savoury things like crisps (potato chips) and sausage rolls. I've been resisting them. I've had the odd packet here and there but nowhere near as much as I was having before I started dieting. It is so difficult to see the people around me eating all the crappy things I used to love to stuff in my face! I just have to remember about how good I'm going to feel and look when I reach 185lbs.
To cheer myself up, I'm going to the Nike store tomorrow to get a new pair of running shoes. I think I deserve it.
