Oh man, you guys. Today was… bad. I woke up feeling crampy and cranky thanks to my cycle. I then found out it was raining and would be all day, which cancelled my planned long walk. THEN I weight in and saw ZERO loss in weight or inches, even though I tried really hard to cut back this week to speed up the weight loss. Between the hormones, the gray clouds and rain, and the progress disappointments… I just let it all go.
I ate cookies for breakfast. I ate a bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch, and then we stopped for ice cream on the way home. I ate half of a buffalo chicken calzone for dinner, and then made rice krispie treats. I feel horrid. I feel sluggish and a little sick.
I’m not allowing myself to feel guilty about today’s choices… and I will definitely be starting anew tomorrow… but the whole thing has made me wonder two things.
#1 – After so many times doing this, why haven’t I learned? I know now that the food isn’t going to taste as good as I want it to, and it doesn’t help anything. In fact, it tends to make me sick and that just makes everything worse. So why do I do it over and over again?
#2 – I was worried earlier in the week that I wasn’t working hard enough, since I’m definitely not as sore or sweaty as I was during my month-o-Jillian. I decided that was alright, but now that I’ve hit a standstill, maybe it’s not alright? Maybe I need to be pushing harder? I know it’s partly hormones, but last month I still lost during that week…
Anyway, I’d appreciate your thoughts on all of this… and I promise to get back to tracking tomorrow.
