I'm on a bad cycle.

I hadn't gone to the gym in two weeks (I just got back five minutes ago). I lost my gym buddy and therefore lost my motivation/encouragement. I went tonight though, I did good.

As for my food. I'm on this 4 day on - 4 day off kind of cycle. I just have one of those days where I'm just so hungry (or think I am) and I eat whatever I want, and large amounts of it too. The next day I do the same and then the next. I eat horribly for 3-4 days without thinking twice about it because if I stop to think about it I'll have to admit my failure. I then spend the next 3-4 days right on track. Eating within my range with lot of fruits and veggies. Then I go off the deep end one day and for the next 3-4 days. Then back on. It's been this way for a few weeks and I haven't lost any weight in a month because my good days are just counteracting my bad days.

I don't know why I keep giving in. I think it's just bad habits creeping up. What ever the reason it needs to stop. It's not going to happen this week. I know what I should be doing and that's what I'm going to try (and succeed) to do.

    Would allowing little daily splurges (and budgeting for them, so they don't knock you off track) help prevent the "going off the deep end"? The more restricted we feel, the more likely we are to toss caution to the wind and eat whatever we feel like. Perhaps by incorporating a treat daily, you can actually stay consistent with your healthy eating?

    Congrats on getting back to the gym! What's your plan for the future? You can do whatever you like, now that you're flying solo. Perhaps you can pick a weekly class or two and go to those regularly, as a start at consistent gym-going? If you go more than just those one or two times, that's gravy!
