weekend a bust

Monday, September 08, 2008

Aloha Sparkfriends!

I blew it over the weekend. Last Friday wasn't all that bad compared to Saturday and Sunday. Both days I started out well, and both days ended in a binge. I felt horrible and to top it all off, I couldn't get online! I was having connection problems, and didn't know why. I connect via a wireless connection, and it would tell me I'm connected and the dsl box would be humming a long properly, but no connection! I tried and tried so many time, resetting and restarting... still nothing.

Today I finally had my hubby look at it. I thought our dsl box was toast, but, it turned out to be something very minor... and I'm glad really, but feel rather silly for not checking this sooner. the phone cord had come unplugged. So, everything works fine now :)

I'm sure I"m way off my goal now because of the weekend I had. I did get in the water on both days, but not near as much as I normally drink, and I"ve had a massive headache and general mully-grubs for 2 days now. I KNOW it' has to do with my going so off my plan.

I'm also sure that those 2 days have probably set me back from my goal by lots. I wouldn't be surprised it all that I lost in a month (8 pound) came back in just those 2 days. I'm scared to check my theory.

My plan is now to bust my butt this week and then, if I'm feeling good about it, I"ll weigh in.

Man, I hate it when I lose focus, it takes so much work to get back.

I'm working on it again, and still not giving up or letting it get me all depressed.

    First - I bet the scale isn't as bad as you think.

    Second - You can still make your goal or close. A goal is just a guideline, and I think it isn't as bad as you think.

    Third - You aren't the only one who could not behave. I also behaved badly. I ate, DRANK, and was merry. A little too merry. I weighed this morning and I still lost three pounds. I am guessing it is the turbo jam, because I sure consumed some calories this weekend.

    Fourth - You are worth it to keep going, no matter how rotten you feel about your eating. Always move forward.

    Five - Hugs!

    You have come SO far. Don't beat yourself up about this. I'm glad you have the right attitude - just get back up and keep it moving. I totally agree with your theory of staying away from the scale if you don't feel like it. I would hate for that number on the scale to make you feel worse.

    Stay Blessed!!!

    Renee, have you thought about the fact that you have done this quite often lately and your body is trying to tell you something. What it is trying to say, I don't know but, when I have a graving, I give into it. Like I did last week with Oreo Cookies, and I'm diabetic.

    Then the very next morning I still weigh, (I do that every morning) and start my basic routine all over again. But, I don't push myself. If I don't feel like doing Zumba that day I might just go for a slow walk. But, I have found that if I start my morning off with my normal coffee then a hour or so later my favorite breakfast everything else falls into place, and it seems to go up hill from there.

    We all have a set back from time to time!

    Been there, done that, outgrew the T shirt. Don't give up but don't try to "purge" either. Just continue on the path. Any purge will be a punishment and you don't need to get on a binge/purge cycle. A purge can be calories too low, over-exercising, or other crazy behaviors to "make up" for the binge. Just continue on the right path.
