Confession, Productivity and the great plateau

Saturday, July 20, 2013

So, the confession is that I gave in to stress and ate like a drowning man wants air. I had opened up the mail, and got overwhelmed by the amount of bills, and thought, " i have room today, I'll have a piece of the leftover cheesecake." then I watched TV and ruminated on how I was going to try and pay the bills. I ate the rest of the cheesecake. Then I felt gross, went to bed and slept poorly. During the night, I ate four cold hotdogs and a handful of almonds. I finally gave up the pretense of sleep, and got up. I've been up since 5. I've been fairly productive, I did the dishes, planned next weeks menu ( with no grocery store event till payday),and sparked for a while. Spark coach was about the plateau. I know why my weight loss has stalled. Because i have nights like last night. I can undo a week's worth of deficit in one episode. I picked the two action steps to bust the plateau. 1) weigh, measure and track, staying within my new range. 2) make work outs, don't skip them. Work harder. Now I have to go be more productive for the day. I'm going to do the weeks laundry, go to the bank, go to the farmer's market and go to the gym.

    It is amazing how it' s so hard to stay on track but so easy to go off.
    Your plan to reverse things is a good one. emoticon

    The good news is that you admit when you go wrong and then get back to healthier eating. Thanks for your honesty.

    I agree w/the other comment! No worries! You've got the tools & can do it! Just pick yourself up & try, try & try again. If that doesn't work like you'd like, hey! Try again! :) We all work at our own pace.
