I had a rough couple of weeks. I ate some food that made me feel bad, I overate on more than one occasion, and I stress/boredom ate a couple of times. I skipped at least three workouts and one week didn't exercise at all. I gained back three of my lost pounds and pretty much hated myself. This was the first time that I gained back any of my weight that I had lost and I felt so defeated. The good thing in all of this? I saw the effects of not sticking to the program and I HATED it.
I know how serious that I need to be and for what reasons. I got back on track and got my weight back down to where it was minus an extra pound! But I was only able to do this by working extra hard and being extra mindful of my snacking. I found myself eating a bite here, a mouthful there during my "break" and not even including it on my tracker. I can only imagine what those added up to! I'll be going to the doctor this week for my hypertension check up and I'm really excited to see the progress that I'm really making and perhaps even be able to take a lower dosage of medication! Fingers crossed!
In the meantime, I'll be throwing in a couple of extra workouts this week and remain a little over mindful of the snacking just to be on the safe side. Hopefully the binge urges won't be so bad as they have been recently. And with that note, I'm off to do my reading to get my mind off of food....
