A kick-start or a kick in the @$$

Thursday, October 28, 2010

This morning I feel like poo. And it's all my fault. I take full responsibility. I just wish I would remember this every time I attempt to do the same thing again.

For the past 4 days, every show that we've sat down to watch has involved pizza in some way, shape, or form. We've been putting off the urge to buy pizza every night. Last night was complete chaos at the house--my husband is trying to build a huge shed out back, but it's raining so he's taken up our entire garage to build the damn thing, leaving our two cars out in the effin cold rain; my step-daughter had soccer practice; my son had swim lessons; the dog sprained his knees somehow...the list goes on.

After my DS's swim lesson was over and I knew my DH was still at practice with my DD, there was no way I was going home to make a gourmet meal. Screw it, we're getting pizza. I did plan, however, and decided to get only mushrooms, olives, and pineapples on half of one of the pizzas. No one eats that combination when there is cheese and the full-meat version available. WRONG! But I beat them away because those were MY pieces.

But a bad situation went worse because I'm on a plateau right now so I was bummed about that. I had a rough weekend that I'm still trying to get over. So I ate way too many pieces of pizza. Then cookies sounded good. And we had gotten some from a school fundraiser (we had to support our DD, right?). So I popped those in the oven--oatmeal raisin--and proceeded to eat way too many of those, as well.

This morning I feel like someone punched my gut. I knew I shouldn't have done it, but I did it anyway. And now I'm paying. I'm trying to think that maybe this is something positive, though--that I bombarded my system with so many calories all at once last night that it'll kickstart another burst of weight-loss since I'm back with the normal stuff today...and maybe I'll get over my plateau. (a Sparker suggested I try intervals and change up my routine. I wish I could. I can't afford a gym membership and I'm very limited--I can do the treadmill or go outside when it's not pouring, I have Pilates workouts...but I'm not sure what else to do being limited on equipment and whatnot. I'll take any suggestions you can throw my way.)

AND...I am having that time of the month (which I didn't think I got anymore since I'm dammed up. HAHA TMI!!) Think positive thoughts, think positive thoughts, think positive thoughts...

    It's OK. Don't beat yourself up. Get back on track. It's possible that the calorie jolt will break your plateau...... emoticon

    So you destroyed your will power...

    I would make sure your write up something to remind you to stay focused...

    There is plenty of things you can do inside. Stairs, walking in place, sit ups, jumping jacks, you can get a exercise ball.. those are like 15 bucks and most come with a video.

    Beachbody is a good place to get ideas and products.

    You can go to your local library for videos and books on exercise...free to you. you can go on line also for free.

    It sounds like you need schedule each day with events with kids when to eat and what you have planned to eat, and plan your time for work outs 5-10- or longer... If you have it set up you most likely will stick to it.

    Sounds like a pre planned dinner and meals needs to happen. Maybe if you had something set up you wouldn't of broke down and did the pizza.

    I would look on line or on here for quick 30 minute meals. The kids seems to eat anything when they are hungry.

    You make a motivation poster.. Put a calendar for the month and plan ahead... Pictures from magazines, motivational words, stickers for your rewards and goals met... before and after pic and your goals. Make is fun...

    Good luck!
