No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
OK, here it is - long, boring and un-analytical. There is no need for that. So, basicallly.....
I got back from the US knowing I had gained weight but I didn't step on the scale. Why confirm what I knew?
I got right back on track with food and exercise and did great for the first 28 days of the month.
On the 29th day of this month, I skipped the gym and went and had wine and chinese food.
On the 30th day of this month I went to the gym but then had 5 drinks and dinner out.
On the 31st day of this month I forced myself to the gym and then went out to a party and drank a lot of wine. At 2:30am this morning we had to stop at the taco stand and have a few since we hadn't really eaten mcub. I had 3 tacos.
On the FIRST day of a new month I woke up and made myself a quesadilla and then scrambled eggs, tofu sausage with some LC and another 1.5 tortillas. I pretty much ate more than half of my calorie count for the day.
Now I am going to work all day and try to get caught up.
I usually don't get this disappointed in myself. Usually I just move on and get back on track (which I will certainly do).
But this time I was FINALLY starting to notice a difference in my size 16s. They were feeling loose and I know I'm only about 5 lbs away from the 14s.
I know I haven't undone all the hard work but right now it sure f**king feels like I have. I stepped on the scale a few weeks ago and it said 181 - the lowest I've been in blahblahblah years. So, there was even a part of me that was happy to finally have lost some more weight in addition to the summer weight.
New month. New September.
I fought with myself last night after the gym. I kept telling myself that I shouldn't go because I don't like to go to parties and not drink. I don't like to stand there with a glass of sparkling water in my hand. I do not want to bring my own (insert calorie-free beverage here). So, I should not have gone. Even though I went to the gym I probably drank and ate a million calories overall.
So, here it is. BIG DEEP BREATH. Two 'goals'.
1.September will be absolutely 100% alcohol-free. There will be no 'I had 2 tequila shots and I'm OK with it'. Not one. Not even one. Please join me in this commitment/challenge if you are interested.
2. I will do my best to find some new foods to eat and cook.
3. I will exercsie 5 times a week without fail.
Happy long weekend everyone!
