Two Hard Weeks Weight Loss

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I have had a couple of hard weeks. I have been making decisions that do not support my goals or becoming the person I want to be. I have not taken the time to journal as much as I would like. I have not focused on my emotional work, instead I have used food and books or TV to run away from it again. I have come home from work hungry with no plan and pulled out Salmon or Veggie burgers and popcorn instead of making a salad or something healthy. I have sat in front of the TV mindlessly eating 3 or 4 times in the last 2 weeks. I totally over ate on Mother's day 2300+ calories and then again on Friday 2400+ calories. I did not hit the gym at all during the work week. I went to the grocery store without a plan and end up going back every day last weekend. This weekend I have not made it to the grocery store and have been eating burgers and popcorn again. I have not done my dishes since Thursday. I have been staying up eating and reading or watching TV and not been sleeping.

On the upside I went to a meditation class on Monday night and have meditated every morning since. I worked out on the elliptical training for an hour both yesterday and today. I have a plan to go to the grocery store today, mental list, and a plan for my food for today. I have acknowledged what I am struggling with mentally and emotionally and plan to address the issue instead of continuing to avoid it.

My weight went down for the 4th week in a row, but I would not call last 2 weeks a success because my weight going down is the side effect of me taking care of myself and I do not feel like I took care of myself over the last 2 weeks.

    I am right there with you on this one. Don't beat yourself up for mistakes, just keep moving forward. No one is perfect, all you can do is try your best, and when you stumble... just keep trying! The meditation and elliptical workouts are awesome! See, you are taking care of yourself!

    Always remember that YOU ARE WORTH IT!

    I have to give myself this same speech over and over. We will eventually get it! emoticon emoticon emoticon
