seriously though, what's with the pasta?

Thursday, November 08, 2012

I can't seem to get it together! By the way, full disclaimer, this is my official monthly PMS ranty blog, you'll notice i stay pretty consistent with them.

i was so focused for most of october and then i lost it and i just cant seem to get back there. i just dont have the ambition. I get home from work and i dont want to eat a healthy dinner. i want pasta or pizza or mexican. ive allowed more and more processed stuff to creep in. what am i doing?


And the craziest thing is that after i went off track, the scale moved! A solid month - well 3 weeks or so of serious exercise and eating right and my weight wouldnt budge and then i relaxed for a week and dropped 4lbs like over-night. So now I'm like woo-hoo, I can party and still lose weight, but really i know thats not how it works and i need to get back to good habits before i ruin my progress. but i just cant seem to make it happen. My good intentions get bodychecked by dinnertime.

ive definitely been more stressed out with work and finances these last couple weeks which is always sure to inspire an "aw screw it" attitude from me but i know i cant do that. i know it with my head you see, but my stomach just doesn't want to believe that food can't, in fact, solve problems.

Its just a little scary cuz im not really sure how to fan that flame again to get all systems go again. im just kind of putting along. Eating GREAT until dinner time. Still working out, but not every day. And im still having trouble making myself do the dreaded and loathed strength training - although i did do some yesterday. But still. I feel so meh when its healthy choice time. But then i think about how im just prolonging my half-way goal and everything after that by spinning my wheels with all this CRAP I keep putting in my body. And then i start to panic. But not enough to actually stop the cycle.

Come back motivation!!! Don't abandon me like that. It wasn't over for me. (This is the part where motivation is supposed to come running back and exclaim "it still isnt over" while sweeping me off my feet...... still waiting)

    I know what you mean. Pizza is my downfall! I try to limit myself to 2 pieces at a time but it's so good. Perhaps though, your body needed the higher calorie jump start to get your weight loss going. Just work on going back to your regular, healthier foods. emoticon

    Maybe it's the PMS causing your body to crave things it needs. emoticon Hang in there!

    "And the craziest thing is that after i went off track, the scale moved!"

    I TOTALLY had the same experience when I was losing! I took it mean that I needed to be eating more (at BMR or just above) and exercising less... and then the weight really started to come off! My personal magic recipe for weight loss was eating 1600-1700 cals daily and burning 1000 cals a week (for me that's about 2 spin classes and a run).

    Ugh, yes. Winter + PMS = A Bad Combination
    I personally find that I'm better off eating a little bit of whole wheat pasta every now and again instead of trying to stay away from it entirely. I've also found some light rye bread that has small slices and isn't too bad. I eat it almost every day. It keeps me sane at that certain time of the month!

    Oh I'm right there with you! The pasta! Sneaking pieces of my boys pizzas. I'm having a hard time getting it together too. Maybe it's the mix of cold and PMS? I don't know. We'll get there though! :) emoticon emoticon
