Wk 79 Weigh In - Roller Coaster

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Horrible week... completely my own fault though. I overslept, didn't get hardly any gym time (my back was hurting so I used that as an excuse) and I snacked way too much. I just couldn't seem to keep myself focused on anything this week, just a few hours of focus here and there. Feels kind of like self sabotage... not sure why though.

I'm not going to spend a lot of time writing this week. It's 9:30 in the morning and I've already had 3 glasses of water (my water intake was below my norm all week) while thinking on this past week and the many ways that I could have done better. My son and I will be going to lunch in a couple of hours and we will be discussing weight issues (he has some weight he wants to lose himself). We need to sit down and put together a plan that we will both stick to, both for eating and for hitting the gym.

Here's this weeks numbers:

Weight : 219.8
Gain : 1.6
Total : 97.4

Yep, gained 1.6 lbs when I wanted to lose 1 lb. I'll steal and change a line from Batman, "It isn't the weigh in I wanted, but it's the one I deserve". Being lazy and snacking got me the results that I deserve this week.

Okay, so now I will think on what has transpired this week and try to formulate a plan to turn things around and get myself back into gear for next week. A temporary setback is all that this is.

    Bad days happen, so do bad weeks. You just have to remember to get up, dust yourself off and get right back in the saddle. This ride is for the long haul and you have done a great job so far! Keep up the great work Ken and good luck to your son too. If he is anything like his dad, he will have the weight off in no time as well.

    Hi, I'm a little late reading this one, huh? I sure hope this week is going better for you!

    I know the feeling of self-sabotage! I'm so close to being under 200 (for the first time in my adult life!) and I went through a really rough time of self-doubt and low self-control a couple weeks ago. I'm pretty sure that some of it was related to a very stressful situation at work. Then one day last week, I realized that I needed to stop, reassess the situation, remember my goals, and re-commit to what I want!! Part of my success is that I have actual tangible goals - like running the alpha race next June and taking my kids to Michigan Adventure and riding ALL the rides with them. Things that I need to reach my goals to be able to do.

    After thinking about what I'm trying to achieve, I decided it was time to re-commit to what I want. I started tracking all over again, working on some strength training (I hate ST!!), and added more protein/fewer carbs to my daily food plan. It's helped in a BIG way!!

    The hardest part about this journey is that we all need to find our own way and that noone else's plan will work as well for us as it does for them... You're doing great on your journey! Maybe take a minute to remember what you REALLY want to achieve :)

    Good luck to both you and your son - he's lucky to have a dad who leads by example!! It's ok to show him the set-backs too...that way when he's faced with a set-back of any kind, he understands that it happens and he'll know how to work through it...

    Horrible weeks suck! But I know things will turn around for you, because you want them to. It just might take a little while.
    I think it's great that you and your son are working out a plan together!
    p.s. - It strikes me that it might be helpful to do more writing these days, rather than less? Just a thought.

    We all have bad weeks. You are probably still recovering! Give it another week! Oh by the way I am on Oahu. Honolulu/Waikiki area :)

    The big thing to remember is that your weight will fluctuate and you do have to take care of your back. What good will it do you to hit the gym only to injure yourself? I'm sorry that the results were rough but I know your future results will rock. You've already got a head start! emoticon

    Your temporary setback is so small, it will be off in no time. How great that you and your son will be working on this together. My daughter and I started 4HB to begin with and had great success.

    Sorry to hear you're having a bad week - but it does happen to all of us so good on you for not beating yourself up but just regrouping and moving forward. Maybe the camaraderie of doing it with your son will be just the boost you need. Good luck!

    I think if experience has taught me anything I have learned that you are never done this process of watching your weight if you ever had a weight problem...or maybe that's just me. At the same time do not beat yourself up for a pound because you are so close to goal that your weight is fluctuating as I imagine a normal person's would under these circumstances.... or what do I know I think self sabotage is my new middle name. emoticon

    It's fun that you and your son can do this together. As for having a bad week it happens... you just have to pick yourself up and move on. I know you can do this!

    Great idea for you and your son to sit down and regroup. Together you will both get into gear.
