Rant. Vent. Whatever you wanna call it Just Getting it off my Mind!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Sometimes it seems like old habits return to me every weekend. And not sure if it's a bad thing or a good one. I've been working on changing my lifestyle for 6 weeks I believe and feel pretty good bout it. B ut on the weekends I'm not counting calories nor working out. Most weekends i limit on how much chocolate I am going to have or limit portions and only go out to eat once and not the whole weekend.

And this past weekend I ended up going out to eat at least 4 times and having chocolate to often. I mean I know my TOM didn't help but jeez I really ate a lot of crap. I know so far this is seeming to work for me so it doesn't seem like I am restricted but wondering in the long run if this is not going to help or make matters worst.

What I am thinking is that when I stop losing weight every week is when I need to change the way I am eating on the weekends. Maybe when I hit a plato that I'll feel differently and want to change. Or to continously see changes in my body may help to stop going back to those old habits.

I have been doing really well just a bad weekend. Usually it's just a bad day not a weekend.

Either way I am refocused and Am kicking my butt this week so far. I feel good and sweaty when I am done. And doing a different type of workout to change it up to keep seeing results. I just need to focus myself on the positive things rather than the negative. And keep moving forward.

Well if your reading thanks for reading my rant i appreciate it :) Sometimes we as humans need to just vent to get things off of our minds and chest to let it rest.

    First be proud of the small changes you have made. We all struggle with different things and new habits are truly hard to form. I tend to be a little of the opposite finding it a bit more difficult to be consistent on days I work because of the irregularity in my schedule.

    We all need down time and we can easily fall into old habits when our mind flips into weekend mode. Maybe trying thinking of the weekend as a time to do what you want to do. And think about what you really want to do. And if you are motivated enough to be here and to have come as far as you have already I am going to guess the things you want to do are not the bad habits that led you to where you are. Maybe start planning on doing a few relaxing things you like. Maybe it is a road trip somewhere, visiting a local park, maybe it is walking out your front door with your ear buds in and getting walking/exploring your neighborhood for a few hours, or cleaning out the garage, or finding something new in your neighborhood. Or whatever it is that you want to do.

    Keep remaining positive and the changes you want will keep coming. I love motivation quotes and recent one I have seen I like was something along the lines of 'You want to know the future, look at todays actions'

    Weekends always suck for me, too. I just do the best I can and get back on it Monday morning. emoticon
