September was really bad.....

Saturday, October 01, 2011

I'm so ashamed of myself in September. I'm really embarassed to be posting this, but I feel like I must.

Really?? Pretty much no change in measurements and I gained. Well, honestly I don't think my weight was right this morning when I took these because I could tell the food I ate last night was still in my system. So I don't feel that 166.6 is my real weight right now. Tomorrow is weigh in, so we'll see. As for my measurements, well... the scale can definitely lie, like I just explained. But the tape measure definitely cannot, and that's what I'm ashamed of.

And I'm pretty sure I know exactly why there was no change in my body this entire last month. My exercise was great! Especially this last week, I rocked it so hard! But my eating... oh boy. I got sick in the middle of the month and I used that as an excuse to buy candy because I felt I deserved it because I was sick. I know... that's really bad. I'm almost over being sick and I've got a little bit of candy left. I ate a bunch of chocolate and I also got Wendy's and Dairy Queen in the same week. What the hell is wrong with me!?

When I saw these numbers, I knew in my mind that I'm saying "no more" to eating like crap. I can have "treats" every now and then, but definitely not as often as I was having them in September.

So what am I going to do to fix my nutrition disaster? I decided that since I only have a little bit of candy left, I'm not going to just throw it away. I need to learn to live with it. I'm going to practice control of myself. Plus I'm not one to waste things... Then I'm also going to start adding in vegetables into my diet. I know that sounds kinda funny hearing that come from me after I've already lost a lot of weight, but I hate almost all veggies so I never ate them regularly. I decided to do what I do with fruit... have at least one in each meal. So I chose to use baby carrots, cucumbers, and green bell pepper. I know I can do the carrots and cucumbers easily, but the last time I tried eating bell pepper raw, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. They smell way more delicious than they taste raw. But I hope it'll turn out ok.

I'd also like to work on drinking more water. Yea, I've said this a million times before and never gone through with it, but I really need to get on it. I know I don't drink as much as I should, so I really need to work on chugging it or something.

Well that's all for now Sparkers. October is definitely going to be better!!

starting weight for October is 161.8

    There must have been something in the air last month, I experienced the exact same thing (Exercising great, but too many uncontrolled treats which left me at a gain for the month) and have talked to a couple others in that situation as well. But at least you have a game plan for the future, which is always key. We'll just have to kick extra butt this month and show September who's boss.
