Fallen but not out for the count

So I am still HERE on the SHRED diet. I must admit after Monday's disappointing weigh in I wanted to give up. Really still in the 180's! 180.4 to be exact emoticon

But I decided to stay with it until the end of the 6 weeks. The temperature here has dropped and it is extremely cold. From 40's to the teens emoticon That combined with this week being PMS time has a seriously increased my appetite emoticon

So far it has been a challenge this week-

Monday- I was at an event that started at 7am, which meant I had to eat breakfast at 6:30. I think this got my internal clock all off and by 5pm I was STARVING. That combined with some emotional eating resulted in me eating an ENTIRE spinach & tomato pizza I made for dinner emoticon

Tuesday- Today I woke and and packed and ready to go. I was at another work event this morning. Then my co-wokers wanted to go to lunch- WAIT! I had not expected this and since they were my ride I had to go. I had planned on eating some Chinese vegetables but they wanted Spanish food. This was NOT on the plan! emoticon
I ordered baked chicken, beans (no rice) and I ate 3 plaintains. I had planed on eating 1/2 the chicken but before I knew it I had ate almost the entire 1/2 chicken that came with my platter! emoticon

Survival- It's not too late. I am still full from lunch so the family is eating leftovers for dinner. I tracked my food and I am still within calorie range so I will just grab something low cal for dinner in case I get hungry. I am about to change and workout for 45 min at home and then get ready for tomorrow. I plan on following the plan for the rest of the week. My scale is in my closet and it will only come out to weigh in on Monday and back it will go. Since completing the SHRED diet is one of my challenges for 2013 I will not give up! I will do it but I know I will slip sometimes but I will not give up completely emoticon

    Keep going Rocks! It is always a challenge to stay focused. You have come so far and you are doing this. I am motivated just to hear you say you have set a goal and are sticking to it for those six weeks. Slip ups happen but you just get back to it. That is strong, my friend! No matter how much weight you lose on this shred, you will be able to say I did it! If you lose or not you will have tried. Weightloss is the ultimate goal but the learning process is of the greatest value. You are learning. Keep Sparking! emoticon emoticon

    I glad you're hanging in there. I had to give that up for now. I felt my body was not liking what I was doing to it and I got a goal I need to meet soon. I'll try it again later, but I reverted back to the 30 day meal plan he had from the 50 million pound challenge. I can work with that a bit better and until I find out what's going on with me physically I got to get the food in. I hope you have great success as you continue on. Glad you were able to balance life events with your plan.

    It is great you continue with your chose nutrition plan!
    Look at the bright side: even if you didn't follow the plan exactly, you ate well during the week, and chose healthy meals most of the time.
    Success will come!

    we all slip up, and it seems like I do more than most, my motivation and will go out the back door quite often, so just remember do not give up, and it will happen
