I am going to be honest. I have been really slacking these last few days. The last 2 specifically were my worst yet. I didn’t track for the day (hardly), and ate…. whatever. Who knows how much damage I had done. I feel really “meh” about it.
Last night though, I couldn’t sleep because I started feeling so guilty about this mindset I seemed to have acquired. I was thinking, “Oh man! I should just get out of bed and do 1,000 sit-ups just to make up for lack of discipline!” I didn’t, of course, I just promptly fell asleep, but I really have been legitimately stressing about it.
It doesn’t help either that I have a holiday coming up. After 5:00pm today, I am a free woman until next Monday. It’s going to be tough staying focused while I am at home. It seems to be the time I am a little more casual about my eating habits and gym routines. I need to stay focused though. One time I read this comment on one of these weight loss forums. It was something to the affect of, “when you want to quit, look at how far you have already come. Is eating poorly now worth trading what you’ve lost?” It’s true. I have lost 15 (or so) pounds, and it has been TOUGH so far. I am not willing to eat badly, and start from square one again. It’s not a TON of weight, but it’s enough to keep me from justifying quitting.
On that note, I need to update my weigh-in page.
