Still Learning!


Today I did a little cheat weight (before weigh day) because I had dipped my hand into the the cookies and chocolates at work and I just wanted to make sure things were still on track.  Well, they weren’t!  I can’t even find the track.  Looking back, I’m sure it wasn’t the cookies, or the chocolates, or the burritos.  It was all of them together within a short week that have done me in!  Lesson learned, dusting off, putting foot back int he stirrup and getting back on the proverbial horse!  Maybe I can get away with one or two infractions in a week, but “what was I thinking???”  I was feeling a bit too good about how things were going and got a bit overconfident.  Not only that, exercise seemed tough this week, so I didn’t give it my all.  Hmm, was exercise tough because of the chocolate and cookies and burritos?  I see a connection here.

This isn’t the first time I’ve done this on a plan.  Somewhere in the back of my head I get the idea that I’ve got it all figured out, and I’m in control.  I’m just glad I caught it soon, before it got too far out of hand.  I was up 5 pounds today, not even a week from my last weigh in, but some is water I’m sure, and I can fix this although I have lost time and certainly stalled this week.  My weight seems to bounce around quite a bit now, so I need to look at trends not just snapshots anyway.  This incident was still scary enough to send my tail promptly between my legs and get me shivering though!  My attention is back to the goal and my eye is on the prize.

To get myself back on track, and back on the horse I’ve prepped some marinated veggies which I’m grilling right now, made some broccoli (reduced fat) soup, grilling chicken breasts so they are all ready to go for packing lunches for work, and I’m planning ahead! I – with all you fellow bloggers helping me- can do this.  We can do this together!  Holidays will be over next week and lot’s of the temptations will be gone.  Looking at average, I’m still down 2 pounds a week since I started.  Not bad, and I have to keep reminding myself to look at trends, but I’m keeping an eye out for those de-railers!
