Getting back after a big ol' boo-boo

Sunday, February 09, 2014

So here I am sitting at the end of what I know was a pretty not-so-great week. I'm not going to make excuses because even though I was running around with literally no time to relax and wasn't home for most of my meals, I know I could have still somehow done better. I didn't need the pizza I decided I could have because "I'll just do better tomorrow" Mhmm... that ended well. I didn't need the breadsticks OR the dessert pizza to go with that, either.

In a way, I feel like I hit a 'Almost to a HUGE goal, better rebel now' phase. I'm about 10 pounds shy of a 100 pound loss, and I lose it this week? What am I hiding from? Am I scared? Or was I just THAT lazy. I've been the strong one this whole time, so dedicated and determined and then I just flubbed up big time. Sunday through Tuesday was good, I worked out fabulously.. but I fear that won't be enough since my diet still wasn't so hot.

On the plus side, I did get some GREAT strength training in this weekend! Believe it or not, 60" TVs are quite heavy to haul up three flights of stairs, then the glass console to go along with it.

Not only am I little disappointed in myself, but I feel I have let down my sparkbuddies. I've never really had to bring bad news, and I don't want my loss of touch to make them feel less motivated or anything of the sort. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but I feel like I have to set good examples otherwise I'm not a very good buddy. Probably way overreacting, but that's me for ya. The accountability of it has been a big factor I suppose.

This wasn't just one day to make up for, this was days of bad decisions. I just need to jump back in now, there's nothing else I can do. Hopefully I can learn from this.

    I think you are doing so great. I love the fact that you hold yourself accountable, your honesty , and looking for answers. That does show a commitment to good health.

    We all need help and support at times. There is no failure if something is learned from each attempt.

    Don't beat yourself up about it. We all have bad moments, weeks etc. The best plan is to not look back, but keep moving forward. Jump back into your regular program and habits that got you to a 90 pound weigh loss. emoticon
