The good, the bad, and the ugly...

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

So I am not proud of it, but I have been on a bit of a healthy me "brake". Here is what I have found out about myself in the past 2 1/2 to 3 weeks since I was last on track...
The Good: I kept up with my workouts. I meet a few friends about 5 months ago at the gym, and we help motivate each other, so I really thank them for keeping me on track there.
I also had no weight gain (but no loss either).
The Bad: At first it was ok, I still was mindful of my portion sizes, and what I was eating, but then one bad choice started leading to another, and then to another and so on. This scares me for the day I have to start maintaining my weight. I don't want to end up putting all this weight back on, and kissing all my hard work goodbye.
The Ugly: This time of the season scares me. All of the self control I will need for the holidays. I got candy for Halloween and proceeded to eat 5 pieces. Why do I always feel the need to overindulge? One would be fine, but I can't seem to control myself when I am not diligently tracking my food intake.
The upside: Going nuts on candy made me re-think my attitude on my lifestyle change as of lately, and I am recommitting to being diligent about tracking my food & fitness. I CAN DO THIS!!!! We all can!!!! emoticon

    On the bright side, it was five pieces. Not a whole bag emoticon You slipped a little, big deal. Don't beat yourself up. Be kind to yourself. Plan for a few treats over the holidays so you don't feel deprived or guilty when you do have one. Remember, you are emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It always seems like that snowball starts rolling and growing awful fast in the "bad" direction, doesn't it!? Good luck trying to right yours.
