Lately every weekend has been one full of bad eating. Mostly me, allowing myself to make bad choices. I am not really getting down on myself in this post. I am aware when I am making these choices, and I could just say no. But I don't, first off, Friday nights dinner was high cal and high fat. I was lazy and ate the easiest thing I could find after getting home late. Then the whole taco bell thing yesterday, and then dinner with the friends. I ate mac and cheese, enchilada, corn bread, black bean soup, and lots of wine.
My biggest problem is my zero restriction. I go in Tuesday to have that taken care of and hopefully that will stop the eat too much part. Today started out good but I was so starving before dinner that I ate some chips and salsa and yeah.. some Godiva cookies. I worked for Godiva for many years while doing both my under grad and graduate degree. I love Godiva. Strangely.. I was also able to manage a reasonable weight (170 was my high) while working there.
Anyway, I was promising myself I would get back on track 100% today.. but no go. I was feeling really blue all day and those cookies did make me feel better. I did, as I try to do everyday, work out. I did an hour of step aerobics and some toning. I do feel good about that. At least when I am eating bad I am maintaining an exercise routine. I would never have done that before.
Part of the issue with my bad eating is that I do it and I still lose weight that week. Granted my numbers have been lower but the weight is still coming off. It sort of reinforces my bad behavior. I guess the real point is, is that I do keep working at it. It may be two steps forward and one step back, but I am still one step ahead. Here's hoping this new week will be full of good decisions and great restriction!
