Two Steps Back

This week was not great week for me. My husband was out of town for work and I ate like crap! When I am cooking for both of us I always write down what we are eating for the week. I had made a plan this week for myself, but I didn't write it down. In the end it backfired.

One night I ate refried beans, hot sauce, and cheddar with tortilla chips. Another night I met a friend and had a couple of strawberry margaritas. Not to mention 2-3 nights I ate bananas with melted chocolate chips for a late night dessert.


 

I have been craving pizza and a rich chocolate cake for the past month. I ate both Friday night! I indulged in the craving and it was delicious. Saturday morning I went to bookclub and enjoyed cinnamon french toast with maple syrup. Then B and I went to see Insurgent and had popcorn. It was all delicious, but none of it was nutritious. 


 

Guess what? When you eat like crap you feel like crap. It is time to get it together. I have gained weight this week and my tummy hurts. So I am going to make menu for this week and schedule my workouts for next week once I finish this post. 



For some reason this always seems to happen. I will do great; loose weight, eat right, and workout. Then I fall. Hard. I always pick myself back up, but for some reason I splurge and go back to some of my old habits every time I loose approximately 10 pounds. When I get down to the lower digits (low 180's, 170's, and now 160's) this seems to happen. No idea why it happens, but I stumble around this point. So I am brushing myself off today and going to get it together. Again! 

Do you have any weight loss patterns? Do you stumble and have to pick yourself back up?

  1. We all struggle and fall short. It's what we do next that matters. It happened. Move on and learn from it!

  2. Your perseverance is really inspiring. If you ever want to change up your workout routine for a day just let me know. I have a zumba, cardio kickboxing, yoga or pilates routine we could do :)

  3. I also think it's really easy to say "Well I ate like crap this morning, so this day is shot. Might as well throw in the towel." Don't forget you can "go back to healthy" any time of the day.

    1. I agree. I find if I don't plan for my lunches and dinners it turns into a problem. Apparently it is part of the journey... :)
