Hopefully this will be a lesson learned!

I am not going to lie-- I feel ashamed of myself. I have not seen the scale budge the way I would like it to in a while. I haven't gained weight--but I also haven't lost anything either. I don't want to say its a plateau-- it is more along the lines of me not giving it my all.

The last few blogs I have wrote (though few and far between) have been all about me not doing as well as I would like. I always try to put a positive twist on things because that is my personality-- and lets me honest, there are too many damn debbie downers in this world! But right now- no sugar on top, am going to say I need to snap out of this funk and get back on track.

Truth is-- right now I am really beating myself up over something I could have prevented (and something really silly). I was at a training all morning 8:30-4, and instead of planning ahead and packing a lunch-- i decided to use a xmas gift card for dunkin donuts. Once again, not planning ahead by looking at calories, I ended up ordering and eating a chicken salad sandwich and just realized it had almost half of my allotted calories for the day. Totally failed myself on that one!

Promises to myself--
1) Be honest on my food trackers. The only person I am hurting by skipping foods is myself.
2)Stay within my calorie range.
3)Get back into the gym routine! I know it is good to rest when not feeling well, but WORKING OUT makes you feel AMAZING.
5) Get that sleeping scheduled worked out! 12 hrs one night, then 5 the next... not healthy.
6)Plan ahead
7)Celebrate small victories and remember how amazing you are.

Hopefully the next blog I write will be all about me getting back on track and kicking butt!

    Keep positive. Everyone hits a plateau and makes a few bad decisions.
    My most recent was cheese curls while dringin. I ate the whole bag on the way home from work. One curl at a time....4 servings!

    Sounds like a great plan, and one I need to follow myself = ) I've been in such a funky place lately and can't seem to get it together. You can do this!

    Okay, you got me. With all that's been going on, I let myself fall into the "debbie downer" trap! Make you a deal, I will try pulling myself out of that one while you are getting back on track and then we are both going in the right direction! Thanks for the "Gibbs smack" emoticon It got my attention!

    Have a wonderful day tomorrow. Big hugs! emoticon emoticon

    Remember, you are emoticon !!

    I am with you. I gained 2.8 pounds after Christmas which does not sound like a lot but I have yet to take it off. I have not gained any more but I have only lost one pound in the last three weeks. I have been exercising. Have been eating ok but I have not been "doing as well as I like". So how about if we go out there and kick some bootie!
