Yes, I gained. No, I'm not happy. Yes, I am frustrated. But if I am being totally honest, I know where I need to improve. I am so frustrated because I've been doing a LOT of things "right" - much more water, exercising, way more freggies. But I haven't scaled down my portions as much as I need to, and I'm still "cheating" and losing control with some snacky sweets more often than not. Ugh. I was still SO disappointed to see that number on the scale this morning. This is way higher than I have ever been not pregnant. My clothes don't fit. I never feel comfortable. I don't feel like "me". You would think that should give me the motivation to get my act together. But honestly, I am more likely to want to reach for a donut, which is precisely the reason I'm stuck in the situation I find myself in. So, that's the Monday scoop.
Off to drink more water and make my lower sugar oatmeal and eat a few almonds in preparation for boot camp....
Just not feeling things today, though I know I need to get myself together. If anyone knows how to reprogram a brain from "live to eat" to "eat to live", please point me in the right direction!
