No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
What has happened?! The week has swept by so quickly. Not disappointed - just shocked!......I'm working on a big national project on top of my teaching load and a million other things so I've been going to bed SO late and not sleeping well at all.
Something happened. I have been doing really well with eating and exercise and I've lost all of my vacation weight for sure. On Wednesday, I called my husband on the way out of work and told him I was going to PF Chang's for dinner for wine and food if he wanted to join me. Of course he did! So, I had 3 glasses of wine and not a lot of food but overall it was a bucket of calories. Then i felt that I had 'it' out of my system - whatever 'it' is. Then yesterday I was working on a few hours of sleep and we had to go and meet some old friends who flew in from the US for the long weekend. I just knew I was going to drink . I really wanted to just blow all out. Like I said - something happened. I just have no idea what it was. We did at least hit the gym before going out! Then I had 2 drinks before we left the house and another 3 margaritas at the restaurant. Lean beef and some plain avocado - not too bad of a choice. Today I brought my food and ate it all by 12 noon. Instead of the hunka chocolate brownie I was craving from Starbux I opted for 3 of those miniature biscottis - 150 cals for all three. I also had 1 little cheese bread thing. It was OK.
The strange thing is that I felt none of this coming on. No TOM. Normal high stress levels. Not pissed off at anyone. Just normal days of eating well and then wanting to inhale the planet in the way of drinks and food when I leave work. Oh, and a major desire to skip the gym. Like major as in I had to force myself to go last night and will go tonight also but I just don't want to. The only thing I can sort of pin this on is that I am seriously getting tired of eating the same shit day in and day out. I mean I don't hate it and it doesn't taste bad. I'm grateful to have food but when I think of eating yogurt, granola, Fiber One, fruit, salads, lite dressing, lean chicken, salmon, eggs.......welll, you get the point, I'm sure. So, this weekend will be dedicated to trying to get out of this food funk and find some new and healthy recipes, etc.
Slowly catching up on blogs. BTL has been busy lately!
Super happy Friday!!!
