Week Three Wrap-Up:
I didn’t really make any changes, which is detrimental to my success.
I continue to eat too much and exercise at a limit that’s well under my full potential.
An episode of My 600lb Life that I watched made me tear up from empathy. The subject of that episode discussed how his addiction with food proved to be harder to break than his addiction to hard drugs. I half-agree – given that I’ve never done hard drugs – but I’ve always had an emotional connection with sweets. Sweets have always been my downfall because I associate sweets with self-care.
I’ll mosey into the bakery section at a grocery store and gaze at the assortment of multi-colored, sugary death traps and tell myself, “I deserve to have a treat”. And then I’ll do that every day, masking my true emotional issues with the false sensation of “self-care”. And then I gain 25 pounds.
What I Did Right
It’s really important to focus on the good things we do, no matter how small. Positivity attracts more positivity. I did force myself to workout three times last week and I made myself cook dinner twice.
What I Did Wrong
Indulged on all the sugar and bread my little heart desired. I ate mindlessly and I created excuses on why I didn’t have to go to the gym between Thursday-Sunday. I exceeded my calorie goals on most days.
1. Follow the meal plan that my nutritionist gave me:
2. Allow myself ONE (1) sweet treat
3. Workout five (5) times this week. No excuses.
4. Practice mindful eating and self confidence. I’m going to achieve my goals by any means.
Current weight: 237 (no loss or gain)
My ultimate goal is to be at 227 by Christmas. It’s a stretch but I know I can do it.
