Yes, I know its Thursday but its been a rough week. A good week I’ve had a blast. I will have a Blissdom Conference re-cap at some point cause it was awesome. Blissdom also lead me out of town for a few nights. A few nights that were crammed with 2 weeks worth of activities! The first time I went out of town since Weigh in Wednesday I made a bunch of food to take with me and really prepared to be away from home so I know it can be done however that is not what I did this time. One of the instructors told us we needed to write about something that scares us… and writing to you this week about my failure scares me. Being grossly honest with my weight struggle scares me and I am going to TRY. Not saying I will make it or it will be good but I will try.
The scale shows a 3lb gain which could be for many reasons. First I didn’t really think I fell that hard off the band wagon but I was doing low carb and well was carb friendly at Blissdom. I honestly could feel the difference in how I felt and my skin. Super strict seems to help me cause I don’t stray but when “forced” to (I know nobody held a gun to my head and forced me to eat that YoCrunch Yogurt) it seems to catapult me into another world of well I will start back tomorrow. Then when I don’t start back “tomorrow” that brings in feelings of failure. Then feelings of why bother you are just going to fail again. Then the well I guess I am not going to be able to kick this habit so let’s just go back to our old was of eating. Then that’s that and the diet/lifestyle change attempt is gone again.
Well not this time cause I think some of you out there actually read this here Weigh in Wednesday stuff. Actually I know you do A LOT of you do but most of you are BLOG CREEPERS which means you read it cause you a.) are generally interested but don’t know how to leave a comment or b.) are nosy and love to hear what my weight struggle is like c.) you are generally interested, know how to leave a comment and just don’t
Seriously leave a comment on the post let me know you are out there other than the fact that I can see all the page views on google analytics. It encourages me not to quit if I know you are out there. Isn’t not quiting half the battle in the diet and exercise arena?
I’ve decided to change diet paths. I am not sure which avenue I will go down. Low carb really is good for me. Being able to eat sugar and carbs is a dangerous highway for me so I will steer clear of them. I have done well on Weight Watcher’s before I have also failed more times than I can count on WW. South Beach seems to complicated for my current schedule/lifestlye. So I think this week I am just going to keep a food journal and kinda re-asses my habits and take a look at where I am at and when the temptations come in during the day.
I have a dear friend who started a healthy eating plan with her family in January and I will be bring you a lot of her recipes in the upcoming weeks if you are looking for some delicious fresh ideas. (Thanks Amy Williams-Monk)
