First Week Back on Track Update

Hey ya'll!

This has been my first week back on track and if I had to rank myself from 0-10 I would give myself a 7.
Monday-Wednesday I rocked it. I went into some of my weeklies, but not very many and I was constantly full. By Thursday I was EXHAUSTED!! Summer school is pretty much sucking my will to live right now. It's so stinkin' early, and it's a full day. A full day with little to no structure = one stressed out teacher. So Thursday night I decided was cheat night.. Fried pickles (Get in my belly!!), two beers, and some catfish later I was feel PRETTY sick. However, Friday was stressful, and I eat my feelings (this HAS to stop) so I ate some cool ranch doritos for a snack instead of the fiber one chocolate chip bar I had brought. Needless to say Friday was a bust too.

It's so funny, because normally I would be like screw it. I've already screwed up my week, I'm out of all my points, etc.. Except this time it's different. I'm not quitting. So I had some screwed up meals. So I screwed up today and ate some CRAP food. Tonight for dinner I'm back on track.

I've learned that just because one meal was crappy doesn't mean you have to eat crappy all day long. Just start over at the next meal.

I won't give up! I'm in this for the long haul.

Check back tomorrow for my meal plans/grocery list for the week!!

How do you stick with it on the weekends?!

Starting Over

Today I decided to weigh. I haven't really weighed in like 3 weeks, but I'd been hovering around the same weight. Well I was up 10 pounds!! This is ridiculous. I'm so sick and tired of this up and down journey. I'm so sick and tired of stuffing myself into spanx everyday so I can feel semi-ok in my clothes. I'm so sick of my jeans not buttoning. I'm so sick of only wearing workout pants or leggings, and not because I'm working out, but because that's the only thing that fits.


I logged onto weight watchers. I've changed my weigh-in days to Monday (I think I'll be more accountable over the weekends this way), and I reset my weight loss tracker. I'm starting fresh TOMORROW.

My thoughts about food are going to change. My food habits are going to change. I'm changing. I will not let another birthday go by where I eat myself sick. I'm changing.

Be prepared for lots of posts about food and motivation. This blog is the only thing that really holds me accountable, so I will be having lots of recipes, and updates on how my journey is going.

Know this, tomorrow is DAY ONE OF THE REST OF MY LIFE!

I can do this!!
