Hitting the Reset Button ~ Back to the Basics
Monday, December 19, 2011
Lately I have really been struggling with my new lifestyle changes. I have gotten lazy when it comes to planning and preparing my meals. I have let other engagements keep me away from atleast two workouts a week for the past two weeks. I am not making the best choices when eating out and my water intake has been severely lacking. What results have I gotten? A 2.7lb weight gain last week. This is the first gain I've seen in a while, and I know it is the direct result of my choices. So, I am regaining control before this thing gets way out of hand. My meals for the rest of the week will be planned. My water intake will be back on point, even if I have to chug a half-gallon right before bed knowing that would mean no sleep! I have lost about 16lbs (18+ before today's weigh in) over the course of 11 weeks. That's a little over a pound a week average, which is okay, but because I am over 300lbs, I know that I could have pulled some really big numbers by now had I been consistent. Pulled really big numbers.... can you tell I watch The Biggest Loser? LOL!
Anyway, I am not gonna beat myself up over this too much. I know what I did wrong and what needs to happen to correct this. I know that I have to go back to what works. I know that I cannot continue to eat sausage biscuits for breakfast. I cannot have hotwings or any other fried meat for dinner. I cannot drink regular soda or eat honey buns and Cool Ranch Doritos. I have to go back to my grilled or slow cooked meats, freggies, and Crystal Light. With Christmas approaching, I need to get on Spark Recipes and find some healthy dessert recipes. I will also be busting my hump in the gym this week and get 4 work-outs minimum.
When Santa runs, he will be leaving Just Dance 3 in my daughter's stocking. I'm sure that will help me work up a nice sweat while I am at home. I am not tripping over today's weigh-in anymore. I'm hitting the reset button and going back to the basics!!!
