What happened??

Monday, April 23, 2012

Friday was fantastic - I was really doing well. I was already down two pounds for the week though my weigh in was not until Monday. I only had to maintain for the weekend, and I had planned lots of exercise for the weekend which would surely make maintaining easy!

I had got up, baked healthy brown grain rolls for my kids for their lunch. I had cooked them cookies as Friday is a day they are allowed a treat for school. To avoid problems with the cookies, I halved the recipe and only cooked ten. I brought three to work as I was going to allow myself one and give one each to the two others in the office.

While baking, I did 15 mins and 500 jumps on my skipping rope in the kitchen.

Got to work and all still went to plan - had my one cookie and was fine with that.
My boss (who we are convinced is a ‘feeder’) had come back from a trip and brought a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts for each of us in the office. I resisted opening them.

In the evening while my kids were at music lessons I ran/walked 3.3 miles in 35 minutes which is just over a 5k. I felt fantastic!!! Nothing was going to stop me now! Or was there something?

Yes- the box of chocolates – kids in bed, husband away, box of chocolate coated nuts and a bottle of wine. The rest as they say is history and so was my whole weekend!

The icing on the cake was that on Sat my kids dancing classes were cancelled, which was to give me an hour of walking/jogging. Added to that was a weekend of wind and rain!!

Four pounds up this morning, disgusted with myself, but I am not logging that weight because if I do I think I will give up. I will wait until Wed as it can’t be real – I def didn’t eat that much as I don’t keep rubbish in the house any more so I didn’t have the opportunity. But I did over eat and I did zero exercise as I was too tired!

Hopefully lesson learned. This is where I normally would fail and hide away with some more food! But I am trying to drag myself back this morning and I know I will!

Need to make a more definite plan – times etc for exercising. Off to do that now.

    When I read looked like I wrote this. Similar existence. I don't want to back track. Or, rather, I can't allow myself to back track this time. I am desperate to move forward.

    This is an incredibly inspirational blog post, if you ask me. You had one of those days we all have. I had one last Saturday, so Sunday was the hardest day ever--getting back on track is a bitch!

    But this seriously inspires me because I feel more connected and less alone. If you gave up, I hope you'll get back on this week. I'd love to see what you're up to...even if it's grazing and lazing!

    Best, emoticon

    If you can't beat them, you might as well enjoy them. Next time just have one or the other. Just a thought. emoticon

    Just one of probably many bumps in the road! We're all bound to give in to temptations occasionally. But you can recover from this! You got this, girl! emoticon

    Wine and chocolate! That classic evil combination! Essential, but hard to moderate!
    Happens to all of us, and its ok to blw out once in a while!

    It's ok, these things happen to all of us. Get back up, brush yourself off and start moving again!
