This weeks weigh in: 236
Yep, you read that right up 3 pounds from last week... must be water wight or increased muscle right?
NOPE, it's real. Want to know how I know? Because this is just some of the crap I've been eating in the last week:
Ice cream, at least 4 out of the past 7 days (and one occasion twice in one day)
Peanut M&Ms (at least two different times)
Kit Kat Minis (at least two times)
Pastry...three of them in one sitting!!!
movie popcorn...so much more than I needed
cereal, lot's of cereal
coffee cake (4 days out of 7)
I know better, so why do I eat it... cause I want to! It tastes good!
It's like when I got close to 100 pounds I gave myself permission to eat anything and everything, and once I hit 100 pounds lost (barely) all bets were lost.
I've done this before, lost weight gotten to a goal and then started back down the path of gaining. I don't want that to happen again, but how do I stop it?
I know rationally just don't eat the crap, or eat in moderation, but I seem to have lost that ability. I'm hungry!!!
Probably time for a fill, but sometimes it's not just physical hunger, but just cause something appeals to me. How do you break that cycle once you've started? I keep telling myself I will be better, but just doesn't work.
I think part of my problem is exercise. I have been working out like a fiend:
monday: body pump
Wed: derby lite
Friday: body pump
Sat/sunday: long walks with the dogs, some skating
exercise is good, but in my case I use it as an excuse to eat more... In my mind I deserve that candy or ice cream because I worked out hard.
so my plan is this:
Call for a fill, not a big one, but just a little to top me off. maybe help with the physical hunger I'm feeling between meals.
Cut back on exercise...I know to some people this may be counter intuitive, but hopefully I can break the cycle of working out to eat. my new plan is this:
Mon or Fri: Body Pump
Tues or Thurs: Zumba
Sat or Sun: Zumba
Random days: skating (Derby Lite is on break for a month, doesn't start back up until September :(. So I'll just be going to the rink for free skate hopefully once a week).
How to stop the mindless eating...that's what I need help with.
