I’m happy that I only gained .2 because I ate awful on Sunday. I really expected to gain more, so I was pleasantly surprised by my number. I didn’t work out AT ALL last week, so I feel confident I could have lost (even with the bad Sunday) if I was running even 3 times a week like I planned.
We ate out after the weigh in, but I had done the research and tracked the meal with no problem. So then why did I come home and graze all night long? I feel like I just blew it. I was happy that I didn’t gain more…but that should not have been an excuse to snack the night away. SIGH. And this is why I need to really work on my goal of not eating in front of the TV…..and not eating when I’m tired….and sticking to my meal plan…
I guess this is just proof that I struggle with Mindless Eating. I know that’s a challenge for me, so I just need to keep working on it. What I want you to know is that you can be successful even with these challenges. I need to put it in perspective. I had a bad night, but I did not gain back 95 pounds. As I mentioned in my post on perseverance, I am NOT going to quit.
The good news is that the week is over. I have a fresh start now. I am not going to dwell on it. I am just going to make this week the best week possible, starting with a run after work on Wednesday.
I want you to do the same. Whatever it is that you are dwelling on, stop it. Let it go. Move on and focus on what you can do that’s positive going forward. Punishing yourself for the past never helps. Have a great week! 🙂
