I've had two disappointing weigh-ins in a row. I admit, its my own fault. The first week I had tried some diet I found online- 3 day diet. I don't recommend it. I wanted to mix things up, I wanted a boost so I tried it. The food choices were pretty bland and unsatisfying. Most meals I was just trying to get over with! And I was hungry ALL THE TIME! So then after the 3 days, I spent the rest of the week overcompensating , eating too many calories or eating the foods I had decided I'd rather be eating than one cup of plain tuna on a slice of toast. Then, on top of it all, I started my period (yay). So 1/2 pound weight loss. I tried to tell myself "you'll do better next week" and went over my mistakes so I could improve. The second week I made efforts breakfast and lunch but sort of took the rest of the day off! My period usually leaves me prone to craving decadence and feelings of self loathing so emotionally all my motivations and commitment just seem nothing compared to a double chocolate brownie with caramel and ice-cream!! So, I close out this week with just another 1/2 pound weight loss. Yes, I am happy (and a little surprised) that it wasn't gain, or even no change at all, but still, only 1 pound in two weeks is a disappointment. Mainly because I know I'm capable of more. I'm disappointed because my goals are pushed out further. But nevermind! Because what is done is done, and tomorrow I start a new week! I need to shake off my self inflicted disappointments and just do better!! That's all we can do right? Refocus, re-asses and do better next time!! So, my goals for next week: run again! Shame on you for taking 2 weeks off! You love yourself enough to do this; stay in your calorie budget. You know you can do this and not even feel too hungry if you eat lots of veggies and fiber and spread your protein out through the day. You love yourself enough to do this! ; drink that gallon of water everyday! You know it makes you feel better and healthier! You know it makes you feel less bloated! You love yourself enough to do this!!
