This has been an extremely difficult week for me. I think the weight gain at Monday night’s weigh in set this week off on a not so great note.
Let me start with some good news. I had two good things happen this week that I will try to dwell on for a moment.
- Clothes – I cannot tell I have gained weight in my clothes. Thank God! I bought some new clothes at the Loft and they still fit great
- Eating Out – I have really learned two things this week about eating out. First, the food does not taste nearly as good as you remember it tasting. Two, it is expensive and I can make just as good meals at home that actually taste better and are healthy.
With that being said, I want to try more healthy recipes and then blog them here for you to try! That will be one of my December goals.
Now, on to the not-so-great part of my week. I just can’t seem to get it together. It has been cold, I have worked late nights, and the exercise just hasn’t happened. We had to move my treadmill off part of the carpet in our bedroom due to a water leak so it has been unusable. With the cold weather and the late nights working, it is dark when I get home so walking outside in the cold and the dark just don’t seem to make me happy!
As far as eating goes. I have done OK. I did well at the beginning of the week tracking my Weight Watchers Points Plus. Then, the week happened. Life got in the way and the tracking stopped. I will track this weekend though to try and combat some of my weight gain.
I KNOW what will happen if I track everything. I KNOW what will happen if I stay within my points plus range. I KNOW what will happen if I exercise daily. So, why don’t I? Why do I continue to let life get in the way and NOT do the things I KNOW will be so beneficial to me? I need to get out of this funk and move on towards my goal.
When I came in to work this morning, I was so happy it was Friday! And then, surprise signs on my whiteboard like this one, make this whole week better!
Did you know I love my job? I will post more about that later. I don’t know who wrote it or why but I love it! To whoever it was, thank you. I needed that today!
Have you ever gotten off track and had a hard time getting back on track? How did you get it together and move on?
