Saving The Week
I refuse to do another post about how it's Monday and I am 'back on track!' I'm tried of getting 'back on track', I need to just keep my ass on track then I won't have to keep getting back on it.
My weeks for a while now have been going like this: Thursdays and Fridays I'm good, on track,program, eating clean... whatever you want to call it. Saturdays and Sundays are spend totally off track and program - fast foods, rich homecooked food, etc. Then Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are spent trying to get back on track and save the week hoping that Thursday morning the scale will take mercy on me and either give me the same weight from the week before or a smaller number.
It wasn't like this in the beginning... around the holidays something shifted and I've been stuck here mostly between 181 and 185. 6 months and only 10 pounds down. I want to see the positive in this, and say I'm happy with my 10 pound loss... but I'd be lying - not only to you but to myself.
I don't feel like I'm beating myself up... I'm just going to stop with the excuses. I was reading a blog the other day and the blogger I can't remember who, it might of been Tony (theantijared) was said that many people want to lose weight but don't want to change their lifestyle... they want to cut portions but not change the type of food they are putting in their body and end up falling on their face.
Basically, like me. I want to go to McDonlds. Instead of having a Big Mac I'll order a Hamburger... but a Hamburger doesn't fill me up, I'm left hungry... at the end of the day I end up going over my points. The 6 points I spend on a little hamburger I could have a chicken salad with a light dressing and possibly still have points left over. The salad would probably be a heck of a lot more filling than the hamburger.
I need to work on changing the way my mind and cravings think and work. I need to work on slowing my roll and thinking before I order. I've been meaning to make a handy little fast food cheatsheet to carry in my purse with me, so when I go the fast foods I know already what's low in points and what I'm going to order.
So today I'm back on track. I don't know if saving the week is possible. The only thing I do know is that I'm doing pretty with points today, I'm stocked with vegetables at home... I need to up my water drinking and I plan on walking this evening for at least 30 minutes.
I've been doing pretty good this week with my walking... except for this weekend I couldn't measure it because Saturday I had a dress on, and Sunday I wore my pajamas most of the day.
My PB2 came today... I'll save my review comments for my next video... I'll make possibly tomorrow.
