Feeling lost

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I'm still reeling from the post yesterday and this weekend.
Okay, moving forward...I feel heavier.
In thinking about what I'll eat tonight at home...I have no idea. Picturing the food in my frig does not excite me. I don't feel like much of anything and am still mad at myself for the weight gain this weekend.

At home tonight I'll probably have two potatoes and some dressing like I did last night :( I brought about 4 cups of homegrown cherry tomatoes as a snack at work. Just ate two hot dogs for lunch...nothing else sounded good...well, B.K or McD did, but I avoided the pull toward the drive through. I need to get back on track again and quit wallowing.

    I am right there with you. This weekend was a huge binge for me. Saturday night after being good all day, even walking over 5 miles in the morning, staying within ranges all day, I had a binge, and it was a bad one. Over 2000 calories in just my after dinner snack. Then what happened? Sunday i kept it up, and didn't even bother tracking anything I ate. Went to movies, had popcorn, went to a store and tried a risotto ball, apple bread pudding, peach rolls, then for dessert had 3 chocolate eclairs. Then what happened? Monday morning I am up 7lbs. So is it time to throw in the towel and say I'll just take the 70+lbs I've lost so far and be happy with it? HE double hockey sticks NO!!! I went for a walk, joined a new spark team, went to gym, and got in 153 fitness minutes. Woo Hoo. Today the scale is still stuck where is was yesterday, so I know it's not just sodium, so it's back out walking today.
    The weight did not come on over night, and it's not going to go away over night either. This is a journey, and sometimes we lose our way. The trick is to get back on track ASAP. If I could have jumped back on the train Sunday, I think I might have only had a one or two pound gain. But each day is a chance to make better choices. Each day make more good choices than bad, and recognize those good choices you are making.
    GREAT JOB on avoiding McD's and BK. Before you started on this journey you wouldn't have thought twice about stopping. So GREAT JOB!! If you're only win for the day is no fast food, that is still a WIN. Remember this is a journey with little daily steps. You've got this!!!

    Boredom with food can be a challenge. It definitely sounds like when you are bored with your food you "settle" for things you know aren't great, but you don't know what else to do. When I do when i start getting bored of food is go online to the menus at my favorite restaurants (fast food included). I'll make a list of foods that I really like and then i'll go on sparkrecipes and other websites to find recipes for these foods. For example, I like the grilled chicken ranch snack wraps from mcdonalds, so I make a healthier version for myself. I like pizza, so I get a pillsbury pizza dough tube and make myself bbq chicken pizza. I like chicken piccata from olive garden, so i make it for myself. I had a really great margarita chicken with black beans and rice from Chilis, so I made it. Looking at actual menus from my favorite restaurants usually helps spark what types of things i like so i have a place to start versus staring at a bare fridge wondering what to try to throw together.
