It is not always easy to stay in track and even harder when stressful things come up in life. Unfortunately, I fell back into some of my old habits. Snacking at night being one of the worst ones! I have also eaten out a lot more for convenience.
Even though some old habits have come back, some new habits also stayed. I still did almost all of my workouts! (I am up to running 6 miles as of yesterday!) I still ate healthy breakfasts and lunches nearly every day! I didn't over-eat at dinner!
This has been going on for more than a week now (closer to two weeks) and I need to get back on track! I want to be motivational to others on here, but I also need to be honest. Honest with myself and honest with all of you.
What I have learned from this, though, is:
-I am only human so I won't be perfect
-no matter how far along I am on this "journey", I can still "stumble"
-it is ok to "stumble" as long as I get back up
-just because I have "stumbled" does not mean I have to "fall"
-there is a BIG difference between "stumbling" and "falling"!
-I will not allow myself to "fall" because I will get back on track!
Now it is time to catch you all up on my weigh ins.
Last week's weight- 172.8 (down 1.3 lbs)
This week's weight- 172.3 (down 0.5 lbs)
As you can tell, my weigh ins have not been bad even though I have been stressed and emotionally eating. I know that I can't outrun my bad eating, though. So I am not looking forward to when it does catch up to me and the scale shows it.
I will leave on a good note with a couple of picturse of me in my new workout outfit!
