Merry Xmas all!
I hope all is well and you have a wonderful time with family and friends!
As a Jew, I am using this time to catch up on work and eat pickles. I am so into pickles these days. I am not preggie, I am just loving pickles, I am turning into Snooki (remember how much she loved pickles even before she was pregnant)...yum, pickles!!!!
So, today was my second WeightWatchers weigh-in.
Positives for the week: I worked out a bunch and it felt great and I tracked everything I ate.
Negatives for the week: I also went out to eat 5 times and indulged too which included a huge apple torte with ice cream and several (seriously) demi baguettes of warm french bread with sweet butter....HEAVEN!
Typical me would have been to simply give up after indulging at a restaurant because of my all or nothing mentality. But, I held myself accountable and tracked it all, even though it wasn't pretty. This was a huge step for me as I typically eat tons, binge, gain 30 pounds, and then realize it when my pants don't get past my ankles because denial is my middle name.....I am sick of it, so I am finally making myself accountable, it feels good.
I figured out how to salvage the week and got some extra workouts in to compensate. I ate pretty clean for the majority of my non restaurant meals and slept 8 hours a night. I had a great loss, 3 pounds! Very pleased and I am getting some great workouts in this week before I leave for Charleston.
Moral of the story, I didn't play the typical mind games I usually play with myself and give up midweek, I actually tried and I had a good loss.
This isn't easy, but it isn't as hard as I make it. I like to hide from the truth, but I am sick of doing it, its so exhausting.
I know I am going to get this weight off for real, I just know it. My blockage has always been in my mind. It is clicking, finally.
Everyone enjoy and I am going to get some pickles!
