So this is the chat I had with my friend Ryan this morning. He wasn't trying to play Devil's advocate, but in the end that's exactly what he ended up doing for me.

Morning Ryan

I feel bleh today. I gained back 2 pounds I lost, I don't wanna eat healthy (although I had a healthy breakfast and packed a healthy lunch). I am supposed to run/walk with Tim tonight but I don't know if the weather is going to cooperate
3/20/2012 10:21:51 AM Ryan says
Ahh well, don't force your body to eat healthy if it doesn't want healthy.. Give yourself a day or 2 of unhealth and get it out of your system
3/20/2012 10:22:04 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
See I just did that over the weekend and I think it derailed me
3/20/2012 10:22:24 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
I had Hartley's potato chips and no bake cookies from Sheetz on Sunday coming back
3/20/2012 10:22:40 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
and McDonald's for lunch on my way home Saturday (Shamrock Shake and chicken nuggets)
3/20/2012 10:23:48 AM Ryan says
Well.. until you get the urge out of your system, it will be hard to stay healthy. I would advise being unhealthy for a little... Then you can make up for it next wk!
3/20/2012 10:24:09 AM Ryan says
You can go twice as hard on your workouts next week?
3/20/2012 10:24:44 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
Well I have to keep up the workouts this week. That's the only part I feel like doing
3/20/2012 10:24:46 AM Ryan says
I am currently getting that urge out of my system... Once April 1st arrives... It is back to eating healthy and working out
3/20/2012 10:24:52 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
I don't feel like doing the healthy eating
3/20/2012 10:25:07 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
And if I don't keep up the workouts, I won't make progress on my 5k training
3/20/2012 10:27:25 AM Ryan says
Take a day and be really unhealthy.. Then tom.. you can start up again
3/20/2012 10:27:49 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
nope, no can do Ry. But I will plan to eat what I want Friday night. Tim and I have theater tickets
3/20/2012 10:27:53 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
then we are going out to eat
3/20/2012 10:28:20 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
Going to see West Side Story in Hershey.
3/20/2012 10:29:39 AM Ryan says
That's even better.. Sorry.. I feel like I was telling you to be bad or something lol.. I was just trying to help :(
3/20/2012 10:30:00 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
It's ok, I think you did :-) It's like reverse psychology
3/20/2012 10:30:34 AM Ryan says
Well, that is how this guy has been living.. eat anything, and everything in sight until April.. sorry!
3/20/2012 10:31:20 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
Part of me wants to. But the rest wants to get fit and be hot.
3/20/2012 10:31:50 AM Ryan says
Rock on Suz.. rock on!
3/20/2012 10:32:18 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
And if the pounds aren't coming off, I need to look at other things, like muscle definition, my energy levels, etc
3/20/2012 10:33:17 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
See, I do know how to do this. I lost 20+ pounds last year.
3/20/2012 10:33:27 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
and we just bought a bunch of new healthy groceries
3/20/2012 10:33:59 AM Ryan says
Well.. forget anything I suggested in the past 20 mins!
3/20/2012 10:34:24 AM Ryan says
And then I bring in snickers too!?
3/20/2012 10:34:37 AM LanTalk message to Ryan
Hehe :-) No really, I think it helped. I needed someone to personify the little voice that says "Eat the donut/snickers etc" so I can argue it down
3/20/2012 10:35:26 AM Ryan says
Hahaha.. Good side/ bad side type thing

So off to drink more water, planning to do my 5K training tonight, going to eat my healthy lunch. Woot, go me!

    hahahha it's like reading a little shoulder devil arguing with a little shoulder angel.
    "no no it's okay have a cookie, have five"
    "but I want to be fit and hooott"

    :3 People will mean well, but you gotta do what's best for you. If you've been off for a couple of days, you already know being off for a couple of more won't help it. Enjoy that healthy lunch XD !
