Paying


polar bear hangoverI totally have a food hangover today.  I’m drinking my coffee, fighting off my normal morning snifflies, and hoping that my daughter sleeps a little later today so I have a few minutes to blog before she’s ready to go.  So the food hangover?  Might have been… becauseIateacheeseburgerandfriesfordinner.

See, if I say it all fast like that, maybe you’ll find it too hard to read and skip it, right?  Maybe I won’t have to admit to eating a cheeseburger, french fries, a lemonade, and a large cookie?

I have to say I am PAYING for it now.  I slept poorly, my stomach is achy, and I feel totally worn out.  Hopefully I’ve learned my lesson and next time I want beef, I’ll make my own burgers and skip the stale fries.  And then, as I sat in bed with my husband bemoaning my stupid choices and making him promise to remind me of this the next time, I heard myself telling him I’m only 5 pounds away from my halfway point.

WHAT?  I’m only five measly pounds away from my next mini goal?  Five tiny pounds away from my halfway point?  Oh that’s it people.

GAME ON.  It’s only Tuesday, so the week is not yet lost.  My new plan is to cut back the calories, amp up the workouts, and get as many of those five pounds off as possible.  I’ll be trying to eat a lot more fruits and veggies, a lot less sweet stuff.  I’ll be trying out new cardio workouts since soaring temperatures in our neck of the woods are going to mean missing our morning walks for the next two or three days.

Ideally, I’d like to see that five pounds gone this week… but I haven’t seen a big loss like that since I first started losing in January.  So instead I’m shooting for two weeks and hoping for the best!  Send me good thoughts, tips, cheers… and I’ll update you after my Saturday weigh-in.

  4. You win for blog picture awesomeness!

  5. Just found your blog via Healthy Tipping Point … I want to try Jillian’s No More Trouble Zones–which one did you do? (I’m behind in reading your blog–first day!) And it’s so good to know that someone else struggles! Well, I mean, I wish you didn’t, and I wish I didn’t, but it makes me feel better to know we all have those “Krispy Kreme” “french fry” and “burger” days. I keep having those days more often … I keep trying to remind myself that I can start over again tomorrow! I find I do better during the work week … I wish my husband would do more exercise with me, I think that’d help with the motivation. Anyway, good luck to you! I’ll try to read more often! 🙂 Your words help others! Stay strong!

    • I did her Slimdown program which alternates Shred 1, Shred 2, Burn Fat Boost Metabolism, No More Trouble Zones, and Quick Trouble Zones (the first four parts of NMTZ)… You should try it out. No matter what, you’ll feel stronger when you’re done!
