Losing Momentum...

Friday, August 16, 2013

My last blog mentioned that I was doing great and that I was seeing progress, and that I was so suprised that I hadn't been craving any crappy food. It's funny how 3 days later I feel the exact opposite.

I've been pretty exhausted these past few days and I have been craving junk food bad. I was feeling like I could sit down and just spend a night in with a bag of chips or a dozen donuts or a large pizza or a pint of ice cream. BUT I didn't do it. I thought drinking lots of water and other things would help kick it, but it didn't. Nothing I ate was curbing the appeal of greasy bad food- so I gave in, somewhat. Last night I went out to dinner. I ordered a cheesesteak, but it really wasn't that bad. It wasn't at all greasy (or satisfying) and I ended up basically just picking the meat off the bun. I'm a huge french fries girl (is that a thing?) though and am pretty sure I could survive off of them. But the ones that came with weren't that great either. So I didn't eat all of them. AND I didn't order a beer or cocktail- just water. It kicked my craving, without going overboard really. So not too terrible. Though my scale jumped up a pound thanks to it :(

I didn't work out Tues or Wed but I made myself run last night. It felt good. And I think it helped me sleep a little better than the previous nights. So I guess I am seeing differences there. Though I really don't have sleep problems normally.

I need to get my momentum back though. My excitedness about losing weight has worn off a lot. I still have 3 1/2 weeks left and I really want to lose 10 more lbs! 6 is great.. but 6 in 5 wks?! I know, I know, it's the healthy way.. but it sucks. I need this stuff to start melting off. And I measured again yesterday. A half inch here and there was gone, but nothing exciting or noticeable :(

I have Boot Camp tomorrow morning. And then yoga Sunday morning on the beach. And then Yoga Monday night. And in those days (including today) I need to finish my week 3 for C25K. much to do! But maybe my pounds will disappear some with all this and Monday morning weigh in will be satisfying.

Here is to hoping!! And here is to trying hella hard to make it happen.

    Sometimes your cravings are all mental...stress, anxiety, or sadness. I know I don't start craving sweets until I'm alone and bored. When I'm not productive, I feel sad, which causes me to eat sweets.

Maybe if you start jotting down, what emotions you are feeling when you get the cravings you can find a key!

Good job not caving to your cravings! Once in awhile French fries aren't bad! :) I'm a donut queen!

    I'll bet with the exercise you have scheduled, you will see a difference! Sometimes it seems the scale gets "stuck" for a bit but keep on making the right choices and it will get unstuck. BTW, I think French fry girl is a thing, cause I certainly am one!
