The past three Tuesdays have been a problem for me, food wise. At first I thought it was because I was going to Weight Watchers that night (I could write a whole blog on the stupidity of the program. I don’t follow the program per se. I never lost any weight counting points. I’m a lifetime member from about 20 years ago and after I lost weight on my own this time, I went back to meetings because I thought the information/”support” would help me in maintenance. But I find the points to be a stupid game and the constant talk about the orgasmic quality of eating some new product sets off binges for me.)
But I digress.
So this is why THIS Tuesday was my Waterloo:
>Food day at work (I should NOT have entered the food cube at all.)
>I didn’t get a break at work. Not even 10 minutes to take a quick walk. (We had “issues” at work. That is what we call problems - "issues")
>Two hours of unexpected overtime. (We had “issues”) So I entered the food cube on more than one occasion.
>Then I had to wait an extra hour for the bus after work. And didn’t get home until 8:30. And the binge continued. :(
>I didn’t drink ANY water – what was I thinking?
>I haven’t been sleeping well the last couple of weeks.
>I already have my first quart of water sitting here by my bedside
>My tummy is in an uproar from all the sugar – just to remind me to make better choices today
>My calves are cramping (a combination of extra elliptical on Sun/Mon and the lack of water – my bad)
>I will definitely get some time away from my desk today
>I committed to ramping up my cardio this week, so I will definitely get in my elliptical today.
Now I wonder if it is more a matter of me being hyper vigilant on the weekends, because I know weekends were my downfall in the past. And by Tuesday I am letting my guard down.
Enough whining from me.
Everyone have a good day!
