Fell off the wagon big time.

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I hate to be such a negative Nancy but I have fallen off the wagon big time. I was doing so well and then AF decided to show up and confuse the heck out of myself and my husband. I haven't worked out in several days and haven't been drinking my water like I am supposed to. It amazes me how easy it is to fall off the wagon and stay off b/c it's just easier than getting back up, dusting yourself off and starting again. I really want to lose the weight but having a husband with IBS who can't eat all the healthy fruits and veggies makes it so difficult to plan meals. I would be happier eating grilled marinated chicken and veggies but he can't eat the veggies and instead replaces it with carbs that I just happen to enjoy. I'm hoping that through the support and aggressive push from my BLC 21 Mocha Hunters I will get back on the wagon and find a way to feed myself and my son as well as my husband. I finally got some healthy cereal and Omega-3 enriched skim milk(Smart Balance) and some Greek yogurt(which is really yummy and good for my PCOS symptoms b/c it's low in sugar and high in protein for a 100 calorie serving). So tomorrow morning I will get up and have a healthy breakfast to start off a healthier day. I am going to have to take this one day, one meal at a time til I get adjusted to it. I hate feeling like a failure and that's exactly how I feel right now-a complete and utter failure for allowing myself to get so far off track.

    Our journey won't be all UPs... There will be some "Downtime" too. That's just natural because that's life! We are doing this, adapting our life to a healthier one is a life-long thing. Do you really think that it will be plain sailing all the time? Not at all. This is a test for you. AND YOU'RE WINNING! Why? Because you are back up!!

    My boyfriend doesn't eat like me either so I usually have to prepare 2 different meals. It takes more time, true, but it's worth it. Anything that will get me to a healthier ME is worth it. I have to admit that he sometimes help out by cooking his own meal. But this only happens like once a week haha.

    You can do it!

    Well, at least you're gonna get some cardio running to catch up to that wagon!

    Seriously, all of our journeys have a bit of time off the wagon - it's not, no matter how much we want it to be, a linear path. You fall off, maybe go over the cliff next to the road the wagon is on, aaaaaand you climb up the cliff and catch back up to the wagon. Only thing to do, really. The fact that you're blogging about how disappointed you are in yourself, rather than stewing in that self-recrimination alone, that puts you approximately halfway up the cliff right there.

    Hope you can find a dietary balance that works for both you and your husband.
