It's Sabotage

Why, why, why? Why do I do this to myself?

For those of you following along on my get healthy challenge you know that I just broke a plateau that I've had for awhile now. So what do I do to keep it up...I sabotage myself. You should know that I have this horrible habit of thinking that once I accomplish something I will easily be able to do it again.

So this is how I've gotten to the point of gaining back, in only 4 days, my weight that I lost last week. I'd like to say some of it is water weight {feeling a little crampy this week...wink, wink}. But what I really know is that I've been eating crap. Yes, extra calories. Popcorn with real butter {ouch...that's a biggie}, caramels {remember these}, ice cream, brownies {my wifely duty} and whatever else strikes me.

So today I am putting my failure out there to remind myself to be good. I can't eat crap AND lose weight. Today I am vowing to be good {nevermind that it's donut Sunday at my house}. I will not eat a donut! I will not eat a donut! I will not eat a donut!

On the plus side {no pun intended}, I have followed my workout schedule to the letter, so at least I feel good about that.

Here's to hoping that Wednesday's weigh in won't be as bad as I think it's going to be :)

P.S. After re-reading this post I realize it seems like we eat a lot of junk food. Seriously, we don't. The Sunday donuts are just a tradition. Although, I can't speak for my husband, who can still eat whatever he likes. It's like he's still a teenager...doesn't that suck!

I have a gigantic sweet tooth right now, Lisa. I completely understand what you're going through. BUT, I think you need to focus on the positive. You are following your workout routine, that's great! I don't usually deny myself too much in the way of food (especially if I'm strictly following an exercise program). Give yourself a little wiggle room, I say! You're fabulous, girl!

I totally understand! My downfall right now is the stinkin Easter candy that keeps finding it's way into my cart. And Easter is two weeks away so I don't know why I'm buying it already!

Trying to get back on track with my workouts this week!
