Fell off

Monday, November 05, 2012

I have officially fallen off my kick'n ass weight loss wagon. I have not been working out since my ear, I have no tracked any food in like 4 days or so. I have made poor eating decisions. I want to get back into the mind set that I had when I started but its like gone away to hide somewhere. I started small today by tracking what I am eating, Ive stayed away from the scale completely since I know that Ive gain back the weight that I lost. I have made plans this week to go to Zumba twice and will try to work out every evening since right now my condo is being re-sided and there are lots of guys right outside my windows!! I am sure every person on their journey goes through this probably more than once, I guess I'm just not sure how to hop back onto the horse so to speak.

Where should I go from here? Should i just brush off the lost days and look forward? Should i be eating less and working out harder to make up for the days?

I wonder when I will cease to be surprised by the emotions that this journey has. Sorry to have been such a bad Sparkfriend the last week I guess I am just tripping off myself! I will pull through this and keep trucking on, just not sure how that looks yet!

    Everyone is different, but I have learned that eating less to try and "make up" for some higher calorie days leads me into a cycle of under eating and over eating. So from my experience, it's best to just move forward and shoot for your normal calorie range. You can do this! emoticon

    Happens to the best of us! Life happens and sometimes it sweeps us off track.

    Don't punish yourself by cutting extra calories or pushing harder in your workouts. Just dust yourself off and forgive yourself for being human! Start tracking your food again and try and stay within all your ranges. Ease back into working out - you don't want to injure yourself!

    Every one of us has fallen off the wagon - more than once. Sometimes it's for a few hours, sometimes a day, sometimes weeks. As long as you can get back up and get going again, that's better than just throwing your hands in the air and giving up completely.

    Don't give up on yourself - trust me, the rewards are so worth the hard work and commitment!
