I have been doing better about binging and not over doing it over the last month (give or take a few days from being an entire month) and last night I fell into that stupid "let's have 3 of EVERYTHING instead of just one of one thing" hole. I could definitely feel it this morning when I woke up, as well as when I woke up a few times during the night because I felt so gross. UGH. And of course, I weighed myself to see how much damage I did.... 4 lousy pounds.... I know that I can get rid of that weight by getting right back on track and being consistent with my food choices and also by working out a little extra this week but it still just baffles me at how I can gain 4-6 pounds within 1-2 days.... it didn't help that I didn't drink as much water throughout the day on Saturday, or yesterday. Its so much easier for me to get my water in when I'm at work because I have a consistent routine. I get to the school in the morning, drink some coffee, drink my water, drink my Plexus, and then fill my Nalgene up again (if not 2 more times) through the day. I know that I can do this, and I've been really proud of the weight I've lost in February (11 pounds!!) I just have to re-lose the 4 lbs that I gained between yesterday and today and then I'll be back on track. I don't know why I binge because as I'm doing it I know and tell myself that I'm going to feel really sick in the morning... At least I've been binging MUCH less than I used to and I can look at that as an accomplishment. I used to binge literally almost every night or every couple of nights. Now its more like once a month or even less than that. I know its not good to really do ever, but I'm working on that!

I'm sure that part of it has to do with the fact that I SHOULD (key word is should) be having my TOM soon. I've been really off the last month and a half (don't worry I'm not preggo (I took a test about a week and a half ago just to make sure/ease my mind)). I had a week where I was just spotting for like 5 days and then it stopped and then a week later I spotted for 7 days, and then the day I took the test, I spotted a little.... I just want to have it and get it over with!! I really want my BP to be going down with this weight so that I can get back on my BC and will be able to plan it and know when its coming! Oh the joys of PCOS (not!!)

I started getting a sore throat yesterday and didn't sleep so well last night because of it...I've started getting the sniffles too. (Blah) I just hope that I can push this out of my system by drinking my water and making healthy choices before it turns into more. I hate being sick, and unfortunately, when more than 1/2 my students are feeling "icky" I tend to get at least some variation of what they have. Luckily I've never had to call out sick yet (knock on wood) and just do what I can to get through the day/week when I'm not feeling well. I was really hoping I could work out tonight, but I really need to see how I'm feeling by the end of the day. I just don't want to push myself and then end up feeling worse.

Sorry about the randomness lol but that's really about all that's going on on this fine Monday morning....

Have a great week my spark lovlies!!

Until Next Time emoticon

    We all slip up every now and again. Brush it off and just get back to what works. No sense beating yourself up about it. maybe start a binge streak tracker and just keep trying to beat your last streak. Hope you don't get sick and have a good week!

    Wow. I could have totally written this blog. Now that you've blogged about your bingeing (sp??) struggles, let 'em go. Focus instead on how good it feels to be on track and exercising and eating healthy foods and drinking plenty of water. Those 4-6 pounds are temporary and do not define you. I had a similar situation over this weekend--and gained 4+ pounds. Ugh. We've gotta just let it go and focus on our positive habits. I think I'm going to dive back into the Shrink Yourself book. I'm not crazy about his writing--he definitely doesn't baby the reader. However, some of what he says rings true and has helped me to fend off a binge or two.

    You can do this! You even know HOW to do it..like you said, jump right back on track with healthier eating! Drink lots of water too.
    Sometimes your hormones running amok throw your whole system a bit off skelter.

    Best way to learn what your fall backs are is to fall down adn pick yourself back up and start again. You're doing great! Just keep it up :)
