This past week was a total 100% bust. I both ate poorly and I barely exercised. It was awful and I felt awful all week because of it.
I saw my old self again. I caught myself overindulging probably 4 out of the 7 days. The girl that I used to be came back to bite me in the butt... And I regret it so much now!
My official weigh-in day is tomorrow and I know I have not gained, but I also know I have not lost much either.
I was down 1 pound for the week on Saturday then I continued to eat over 2000 calories and double my recommended fat intake for the rest of the weekend. Ugh, why do I do this to myself.
I have not learned to control my cravings and to have willpower yet. I can't handle it when things get tough. I tend to do fantastic 3 weeks out of the month and then the 4th week comes around (typically right before TOM comes to visit...) and I lose it. I lose control of myself and my fat ole' tummy takes control.
I am going to spend a lot of time today on Sparks. I want to re-motivate myself.
I packed a nice lunch of homemade chicken salad on a Sandwich thin with dijon mustard and 2 cups of sliced yellow sweet pepper. I also brought a yogurt so that I can have a snack... I think I am going to look into an actual diet that gives me food guidelines to stick to. Maybe this will help...
TODAY I START FRESH. I ONLY HAVE 25 DAYS LEFT IN THIS CHALLENGE AND I WILL SUCCEED.
I know I am going to be in a bathing suit over July 4th and I want to be more comfortable than I have been the past couple of years.
So... Cheers to a new day. Today is a new week. I will forget the past and move forward with more conviction than ever before...
there will be ups and downs in you life changes.. You can get back on track and you can succeed... Be strong.. for your week with TOM.. plan out your food and snacks ahead of time.. if you increase your calories.. do it with healthy snack options.. there are LOTS of good recipes out there for what ever craving TOM gives you.. for me it is chocolate. and i have found numberous cookies, banana bread with choc chips, options so i do snack.. and have my sweets.. i find it is getting less and less.. but i have not deprived myself.. TOM will get better when the eating is better.. go ahead and eat it but when you get the urge.. get it out, put it in front of you and see how long you can go before you actually eat it.. you might surprise yourself.. 4027 days ago
