Disappointing WI today – gained 0.9. I had a great week! I worked out, I tried new recipes, I stayed within my PointsPlus range…WTF? I believe a lot of it is water weight gain with good ol’ AF soon-to-be making her appearance, but it didn’t stop me from crying buckets of water in the shower after I stepped on the scale this morning. The usual “I’m going to give up“, “I can never lose this stupid weight“, “I’m a failure“…all kept creeping into my head, but then I thought of the many blogs in my blogroll at how they’re such an incredible inspiration to me, how they all kept going & some still are despite stupid setbacks like a 0.9 gain.
So, you guessed it – I put on my big girl panties & said enough self sabotage talk. Move on. What’s the plan of attack for the week ahead?….
Well, we were able to deter the in-laws for staying another weekend with us. Saturday is Rich’s birthday, so they’re coming on Sunday to celebrate. I can handle one meal, one day, but having to make all these big meals all weekend long…was/is too much. I’ll be sampling two new recipes this weekend in honor of his birthday. One I know will be WW approved – the other one, probably not so much, but that’s what the weekly points are for.
On the workout front – I’ve been so anti-running since the 5k where all I did was self sabotage myself. It didn’t help that they e-mailed me pictures from that race & all I wanted to do was puke/cry looking at them. BUT…I’ve realized it’s the one workout I can do that makes me feel good when I’m “in the groove”. You know when you get in that running groove all you want to do is run? I remember that groove & feeling so strong & fit. It kept my motivation going for all other realms of my life. So I’m hoping this week I can get back into it.
I’m terrified of next weekend – July 4th weekend – aka another weekend upstate – which is where it all went down hill for me last time, but I just can’t. I need to take it all one day at a time – or as a wise person told me – 1/2 a day at a time! (Thanks Jenn@slim-shoppin !)
(So much for a “quick” post. :P)
