I gained last night.
I knew it was coming, but I still wasn't ready for it. It was really hard to see the numbers going up. This is not what I want. Why do we sabotage our efforts? I knew on the weekend that I didn't really need those nachos and cheese. But I got them anyway, because they were there. They didn't fill me up, infact, ended up spending even more money becasue and hour later I was hungry again. Why take the nachos? Why not have gone straight to the healthier, more filling options? (In this case it was chilli) What was the point of the nachos? Yeah they tasted good, but it's 4 days later and I'm still thinking about how I shouldn't have had them.
Even thought I know exactly what I did wrong this week, and I pretty much expected to gain, I was not prepared to see the numbers go up. I found it so disheartining. My first reaction was "I will never be able to do this, it doesn't matter what I do, I still gain", say the typical self-pity things. Then I stopped myself and said "wait a minute, you can't expect to loose after the poor choices that were made over the weekend". The program works, but only if you work it! You can't expect to be able to eat junk all week and see a loose, if you could, there would be alot more skinny people out there!
So this week, I am back on track. No more self-pity. I have to work for the results that I want. I am ready to see one-derland!
My plan for the week:
*I will drink all of my water (2-3L a day, even on weekends)
*I will ride my bike to and from work every day (unless major weather issues)
*I will go and do weights at the gym 3 times this week
*I will go for at least 2 3km runs
*I will eat only core foods, and not go over my 35 pts for the non-core foods
*I will make sure that I have quick and easy things availible for lunches
*I will track everything that goes into my mouth
And most importantly...
**I will forgive myself for all my slipups last week. I can't go back and change them, but I can change my attitude and my choices in the future.
On a brighter note
Good luck to all the wonderful ladies racing in Ottawa this weekend! My fellow runners, you motivate me more than you will ever know! I will be out to cheer on the 5km, and cheer in the 1/2 and full marathoners! 10ker's I will be running hard with you!
Good luck to you all!
