Midweek Review

October 17, 2007 · 5 comments

As I suspected, this has been a tough week.  Went to my parents for a party Sunday night and did not do well on the eating front.  I had a 6:00am flight Monday morning and I did lift weights before that, so that was good.  But then after a half-day meeting we had dinner and drinks and I had too much of both, although for my main dish I did have a portobello mushroom burger and since we were at a BBQ place I could have been way worse.  Tuesday was an all day meeting with continental breakfast, catered lunch and dinner at a Chinese/Thai place and once again I did poorly.  I have not yet learned how to conquer these situations.

I’m not going to get on the scale until my official weigh-in on Sunday and I am going to work extra hard between today and then to make sure my goal for the week, which is 1 pound lost, is still met.  I really don’t want to go backwards after last week’s great loss. 

But you know what?  It feels really good to know I can be bad like I have but I don’t feel the least bit guilty.  I just know I have to work really hard, and it may take more than a week.  And I am OK with that. 

That feels really healthy.

I wish I didn’t feel guilty about my failure to eat well last week while in Atlanta, BUT I am trying to reason with myself about the positives (bringing my own breakfast food, fruit, two days of exercise, passing up some of the bad stuff…). We’ll see how bad it was at weigh-in tonight. I’d be EXTREMELY happy with no weight loss or gain for the past two weeks. Congrats on the 5lbs! Keep up the good work!

I have already said it but I will say it again: you are so there mentally. I feel like I am finally there mentally, too. Now I just have to back it up like you have done.

Ack! I tried to respond, but wordpress ate my comment!

Eating out can be so difficult - I have a problem with that too. But I think it’s fantastic that you have such a healthy and realistic way of looking at it.

It’s so great that you can just accept what’s happened, pick yourself up and get back in gear without ever losing sight of your goals.

Good for you!

Hey John! Good for you, taking control over the guilt! Your attitude is everything… that’s what we all strive to achieve. That is healthy!

Keep up with the plan!

glad to hear that you can cope with it now. I am 50/50 on that. it really depends on how i have been doing prior to it. if i had a good week workout and eating wise i am fine with a small slip up. otherwise, i feel devastated.
