Today is Monday, which means it’s my weigh-in day. And let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty. I fell off the wagon hardcore this weekend. I didn’t track my calories, so I acted as if none of the food I ate counted. Lots of ice cream and cupcakes were involved. To be honest, I’ve been debating whether I should even post my weight this week. I’m embarrassed. But I started this blog because I wanted to be accountable. And losing this weight isn’t going to be without setbacks. So here goes nothing.
Weight 7/9/12: 169.6
Change since last week: 2.6
Change overall: 1.2
Ugh. Not good. I’d like to say that this was enough of a wake up call to get back to healthy eating today. But when I got to work this morning, someone had brought in red velvet cupcakes. And I had to walk past them every time I left my desk. Sooooo I had
one two. On top of that, it was a coworker’s birthday, so someone brought in chocolate cake. I had a piece, even though I’m not a huge fan of chocolate cake. I guess I figured my day was screwed already, so why not? I also feel weird turning down desserts when I’m in a group like that. Maybe I’m too much of a people pleaser?
Besides my breakfast (overnight oats), I didn’t have a real meal, and just various pieces of cake and some pasta salad. I felt the worst that I have in weeks. Sluggish, and my digestion was messed up.
After work, I had a meeting with my dissertation advisor and had to run some errands, so I didn’t get home until about 7. Normally after a day like this, I would have skipped my workout and grabbed Chipotle for dinner. But I knew I would feel terrible if I skipped my run on top of everything, so I dragged myself outside. The weather was so nice. It’s the first time I’ve felt comfortable going outside in weeks. I was feeling really good during my run until I had about 7 minutes left. It felt like my gas tank was empty. I didn’t understand what the deal was…I had just been feeling so good! Then I realized that it must have been because I hadn’t eaten anything before my run. Duh!
Today sucked, but tomorrow I’m going to get back on the wagon.
