A frustrating morning

Sunday, May 25, 2014

It's been a frustrating morning.

I know I haven't been working out like I usually do all week long. I honestly figured I'd not loose any weight, but I was upset to find I've gained weight this week.

How is it when I bust my butt, I'm lucky to loose 1.5lbs, but when I relax a bit and watch my food, I can gain over 2lbs in a week???

this is seriously pissing me off this morning.

But it has opened my eyes. I guess my nutrition is not as good as I was hoping. I've tracked about 80% this past week. Looks like 80% tracking is not good enough for me. I NEED to be accountable for EVERY BITE.

I know this. I just slacked off.

As for fitness, I was thinking the other day. I have a few runs ahead of me, and I have no intention of not doing them.

However, my knee is aching again. I really need to watch my running so I don't hurt it.

Maybe it's time for me to consider not running anymore until I can get this dealt with. Or maybe it's time to find another way to stay fit. This upsets me, but is a reality I really do have to face.

Top that all off, I went to McDonalds to get my breakfast. I know - look at the scale. I get eggs and coffee every morning. That's it. I'm celiac, so that's all I can have there. I got home from the drive thru, and my eggs were runny AGAIN. Scrambled eggs are NOT supposed to be liquid. I took them back and demanded my money back.

That's the third time they've done that to me. I told them today - I'm DONE. No more. I've already had it out with the managers there about the runny eggs last time. I told them it was beyond unacceptable to give someone runny eggs ever, but especially in drive thru.

So that honestly gets rid of one of my weaknesses. I won't be getting breakfast there anymore. When we travel, it's a safe way for me to get some inexpensive breakfast in the mornings, so I may go back to another location at some time. But it will no longer be a go to for me at home.

So all in all, it's been a rough morning, but I think it's opened my eyes.

Needless to say, I'm out of my dietBet's. There's no way I can catch up in a healthy way at this point.

But that doesn't mean I'm giving up on me. I need to tweak things.

Unfortunately We're going on holidays in 6 days - we'll be gone for almost a month. I don't know how I'm going to do this. I think all I can do is make better food choices, write down every bite of food, even if I can't track it on SP, and keep moving as much as I can. I still have my bodymedia, and I'm sure I can get online every couple of days to update that. Maybe even catch up on tracking my foods then. But day to day I'll just have to do it on my own.

I'm thinking salads for lunch - as much as I hate to say that. It's time to grow up and just do what I need to do for me.
Snacks - heavy on the freggies. If I want nuts, etc, I'd better portion them myself BEFORE we go. That way I know what I'm eating.
Breakfasts? I have no idea. Eggs when available - ask for egg whites.

That will help out when I'm stuck with whatever they are serving for supper. I can't control how they cook it, so that will likely add calories I'll be unaware of. I'll just do my best to eat as clean as possible.

Oh yeah. And lots of water every day!

I will hopefully not gain any weight on holidays with this plan. I have two half marathons while we are away. Between the two races, I'll keep moving as much as I can to keep myself ready for the second one. I'm going to strive for 60min fitness every day.

    Hi there,

    I'm Angela. I'm new to the blog world and I just read yours. I hate to read that you have had a rough morning. I understand how all that can be. It's like you're in you're own way. LOL I know trust me, I know.

    As I was reading your blog I couldn't help but sense the urgency you were feeling. I was going to ask if you have ever taken a step back and just assess the situation, prior to reacting without having to increase your stress levels? I noticed that you're really worried about charting your food, well, that's great, but if you slip up, just learn from it and move ahead. No sense in borrowing trouble. I just wanted to share my observations.

    I hope you have a great holiday and I hope the marathon goes well, too.

    All the best!
