Weigh in on Friday morning, was not good. I wasn't expecting to be up two pounds. I am currently 7lbs over my goal weight. Something, honestly I'm quite ashamed of. I'm just letting my success slip away it seems lately. Its like a car wreck, I've been watching it, doing nothing to help. Of course I let the scale dictate the tone of my day, I was not a happy camper. Whose fault is this? My own, yes I have to take ownership of that.
Not only was the scale a huge warning sign to me yesterday, but my friend Amy came and talked to me. She read that I needed to set a goal, and like good friends do she threw down the gauntlet for sure. We have agreed to register for the Army Run in September for the 1/2 Marathon. Are we going to run it, we don't know but they do allow walkers in this 1/2 marathon. So now I do have this huge challenge looming after the summer is over. Amy also told me about the 100 day challenge she's given to herself. To track and to track HONESTLY for the next 100 days. Well Amy, I hope you don't mind me stealing this idea!
Let me show you last week's tracking, and I've written on it exactly what it is...
Lies you ask? Except for the total lack of activity points I was well within my daily points right? WRONG. I was tracking creatively, tracking what I felt like tracking, even randomly assigning low points values for food that I knew were higher. All in attempt, I suppose to make myself look good "on paper" to see those average numbers and think "hey I'm doing not bad". Do you know how many times I delved into the various candy dishes at work and did track a single chocolate or treat? Several times a day!
So yesterday was day one for me, I tracked EVERYTHING honestly! I also stayed away from the candy dishes (yay me!). For some reason yesterday I wasn't very hungry and had a HUGE point surplus (like 12) at the end of the day. So in the end I did go and enjoy a SMALL DQ dipped cone after dinner with my friend Christin. Really who could eat 12pts of healthy food and not be ready to explode. Really I didn't eat enough points through the day (breakfast/lunch).
I truly believe that your home is a representation of your mental state. Mine was getting kinda disgusting. So I've got a clean home to reflect a more streamlined mental state. I've exercised the last two days, and I'm back on the road to going to Weight Watchers meetings weekly.
