I'm slipping into some old bad habits, eating good maybe 70% of the time (weekends are still a killer). Not only that, but not listening to my body; not eating ANYTHING when I don't feel hungry even though I've been run-run-running all day long. Then the Big Hunger strikes, and even if I don't go over my normal calories for the day, it feels like a guilt-inducing binge.
....Anyway. Been avoiding the scale and finally (wo)manned up today to face reality (disclaimer here: I'm ABSOLUTELY FINE going by how I feel as opposed to what that number says, however, I've been FEELING larger, jigglier, and bloated. Hence the need to check in) and let out a word that-you guessed it-rhymes with "duck."
Not only am I up 10 lbs from where I seemed to have stabilized after entering maintenance, but I am back into an old "decade" I never wanted to revisit.
So the plan:
1. Quit half-a$$ing the tracking of calories. Much as I hate it, it's time to get real (strict) again
2. Drink my water every day, no weekend slacking
3. NO MORE ALCOHOL.
Even 1-2 drinks is enough to hang out in my body for a while in the form of added weight.
4. Run Sunday. Period.
When I gained weight before, my first significant block of weight (34 lbs) I swear it happened in a month. Really it was about 3, but felt like POOF! You are now Obese!
I DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. I CANNOT LET THAT HAPPEN AGAIN. I WILL NOT LET ALL THE HARD WORK, SWEAT AND SACRIFICE BE FOR NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
