Not giving it my all :(

Friday, September 02, 2011

Alright confession time.... This week started strong hit every workout goal I set for myself stayed in calories the first 2 days and then my bf decided to go on a crazy binge eating week and I unfortunetly decided it was easier to join than to fight the urge! I have still been working out twice a day like I said I would and I know that's the only reason I haven't gained 10 lbs this week. Meals and snacks during the day are great I'm within all my ranges lots of healthy fruits & veggies, dinners usually a little more carb filled than I'd like but still not to damaging and then the evening rolls around and my bf looks at me and says I'm hungry I want (insert horrible junk/fast food here) and after debating for 10 min we both cave and eat whatever it is last night we made a grocery store just for junk food cause I haven't been keeping it in the house! The night before was a mc donalds run.

Now we don't normally eat like this and I know that I should still be able to resist even when the temptation is right in front of me but I'm just not that strong I know it's ok to indulge sometimes but this is ridiculous! I'm not going to make any progress eating like this and it's frustrating to me to know that all my hard work is going to waste this week because it's just canceling out the crap I'm stuffing my face with instead of trimming off this stock pile of fat I already have! This morning I woke up early and did 2 miles hopefully I get this crazy snacking under control so that I can make september the great month I know it should be!

    You just need a hug BIG HUGS! I am right there with you hun. WE are the best at beating ourselves up arent we? You are still working out and still doing good during the day. So you are indulging..you recognize the issue so push through it and make it right. This Labor Day weekend has kicked my arse...Today is a new day and we gotta do what is right for our bodies. Dont get down on yourself. emoticon

    I took a "break" from eating healthy after our last challenge. You can get back on the wagon now! emoticon

    Keep trying! You're still working out twice a day, so even though you're bringing in calories, you're burning them right off again :)
    I get those crazy snacking weeks too - in my case my healthy lunches get tossed aside for deli sandwiches (which my hubby LOVES, so it's hard to say no when he's having one!), and my usual healthy snack of a banana becomes a banana smothered in peanut butter and nutella!
    Keep up the good work, we can do this!!

    I truly understand. The later in the day it is the lower my self-control. One thing that helped me was making a veggie tray with low fat dipping sauce while I am making super. The second I feel the urge I place it in front of me. Within seconds the urge is gone.

    I do allow myself small treats by I limit the caloric intake to 100 calories per day

    Be patient with yourself, I know you will be able to do it. What is in the past should stay there.

    I am having the same problem! My self control is lacking and I have been snacking on junk food! Very frustrating! But we are aware of the problem and now we can fix it!
