5 days left of 32...and I messed up this weekend

Monday, August 25, 2014

Yes you read that correctly. What good are plans, goals and desires if you don't stay disciplined? When I say messed up I mean I ate junk and more junk. Sad part I didn't even give it thought while I did it I just ate junk. Shows me that this journey takes 100% focus at all times or those bad habits that I've harbored for years will show up. I guess it's like people addicted to drugs, alcohol, etc., it can return if you're not completely delivered. God I need you to help me

My goal was to workout and eat right for these last seven days. Well Friday went pretty good. I worked out at the gym. Saturday rolls around and my plan was to get a workout in after or before my church event. Well that went bust. I slept in got my coffee and bran muffin and headed to the church dinner sale. Worked all day until 5. Thought I would be done by 1-2 at the latest, not!

The bad part was i drank a soda while there, ate chocolate cake while there, had a dinner with Mac n cheese and fried fish afterwards but I didn't workout. Sunday I did get up and strength train but after church I ate cake, cake and cake along with ribs, some more Mac n cheese, Taco Bell supremes 3, and no cardio at all.

Bad weekend, bad, bad bad! Now I'm just 4 days away from my weighin after two weeks of not weighing in. Last weigh in I was 272.4. My goal for August was to hit the 260s. To lose 5#s this month. I'm nervous since I haven't seen the scale at all in over two weeks. Then I mess up like this! Now the question remains...what can I do for the next three days to squash my weekend damage?

Drink my gallon everyday...all of it
Diet restrictions, no cheats at all
Workout and torch some serious calories
Prepare mentally for whatever the scale shows Thursday morning
Be prepared to return from my mini vacay stronger no matter what this months results are...

I've recently read that losing weight and this journey is about changing mentally and preparing mentally. Part of that preparation includes preparing for pitfalls and mistakes. That too me is the hardest part and creates development. Because when you get back up and keep pushing forward you win every time despite what the scale says.

So I will not leave this weekend feeling defeated. I leave this weekend behind me with greater knowledge of who I am inside and what I still need to be healed from. This weekend I won't forget but I will give serious thoughts to my actions and the changes I will make so that this won't be the topic of another blog
