Confession of a junkaholic

Monday, February 15, 2010

So I need to confess...not only did I get a box of chocolates for V-day and they are already gone, I swear it was not a big box lol, but I also had chinese, General Tso, Saturday evening. So the chinese was good but also right after I feel over stuffed and know that it was soooo not worth it. But it was on like Donkey Kong with the chocolates. The worse part is Lent begins Wednesday so even if I wanted to save them and have one a day, I couldn't.

It sucks knowing that I back tracked half of what I accomplished during the week. And I keep asking why am I not losing the weight as fast as I did last year??? Lol. Okay, Hello, can we say Denial?

I wanted to write a blog and actually say out loud or well write it out loud what is stopping me to get past 135, which I having been complaining about so much. I didn't want to just add it to the traecker quickly and close out the page and never think about it again. Yes, what is done is done. But I wanted to learn from this, cause I should have been at my goal weight already. I only have 8 lbs. to lose to be where I would at least like to be.

In exactly 2 days, February 17th, I will have exactly 5 months to the wedding. If I only lost 2 lbs per month, at LEAST, that would be 10 pounds before the wedding. So thats definitely not my goal, only 2 lbs per month, but I guess in black and white it seems funny to think how I am sabotaging my weight loss with my weekend splurges, and if I only lost 2 lbs per month I would still surpass my goal of 130.

Okay so this blog was definitely written more for me, but if anyone reads it and gets something from it, Awesome! The good thing is lent is on Wednesday so no more sweets, and the Fiance had a physical and his family history of high cholesterol and blood pressure has finally hit him so our "better eating" habits will be getting even better. And now that I am doing P90X religiously. With those two good habits, and my confession to myself, no more steps backwards, only fowards!

    Weekends can definitely be difficult, but this one was a bit harder since my fiance's uncle was over and he was the one that offered to get chinese for everyone, couldn't resist. And then of course it was V-Day, so those chocolate boxes only happens once a year, thank goodness! And I definitely believe I am stressing myself out for sure, and thats is not helping!

    Don't even stress it:) I'm sure that if you stop focusing so much on "doing bad" the weight will start to melt off! You are probably totally subconsciously stressing and your not even aware. Relax, I am sure you will be absolutely stunning on your wedding day. And a couple pounds lower than your goal;)

    I definitely got something from this blog! I have been sabotaging my efforts, too! The weekends are the hardest for me because I am home more and more prone to snack mindlessly. This is a work in progress for me, but I will defeat it! One day at a time!

    Congrats on your wedding!!!
