Today was weigh-in day, and I stayed the same. I lost a lot of momentum last month being sick, enjoying the holidays and not attending my regular weigh-ins. I did lose weight during that time, but I didn’t do as much as I could have done.
That being said, I started pressing forward before entering into the new year. And I made progress (according to the scale) last week. This week, I stayed the same. And while that has only happened a few times in the past, I’m not terribly disappointed today.
I exercised like crazy all week last week. I mean, I really pushed the limits with myself. Maybe I should have eaten a little more throughout the week. (I was disgusted by food much of this week, but not over the weekend.) Maybe I shouldn’t have eaten junk foods Friday and Saturday. Yep, I’m going with that. 😉
Over the weekend I made choices to indulge in portion-controlled amounts of a couple foods that I don’t usually eat. And when I made those choices (on back to back days) I knew I would have to work hard to even things out. And that is precisely what I did.
I ate a bacon cheeseburger AND donuts. And I’m okay with it because I planned to do it days in advance. But to be perfectly frank, the burger wasn’t that great. I could have been just as satisfied with a chicken sandwich on a whole wheat roll. But I ate poorly. It happens, but it doesn’t happen often. And it will not happen again this week or the next. I’ll make smart choices, and I’ll lose weight.
When I do my best (or mosty my best) it works. So I’m not frustrated. I’m simply determined to make this a healthy week like most of the other weeks I’ve enjoyed since taking control. And I’m overjoyed that I can honestly say that I remain steadily in control of what I eat.
Oh, and I feel like a rock star because I’ve been exercising like a champ. It’s a long, long road. And there will be ups and downs, but I’ll continue pressing forward.
