Pity Party O-V-E-R

As promised, my one day funk is over. I'm back into my routine of boot camp at the crack of dawn, some extra quality elliptical time, having my planned-out lunch, and will have a good dinner. Ah. Breathing a sigh of relief to control again. I think yesterday felt out of control (because of decisions I've made) but now I've grabbed the reigns again and I'm feeling like a champ.

Why berate myself so heavily for having a bad week? Again - I still was under my calorie burn, just over my RDI. And I'm at over 6 weeks of steady weight loss. This isn't some fad intense detox for me, but rather a controlled rise into a healthier, maintainable lifestyle. Why be so focused on what didn't go well, and focus a little more on my victories? Now don't confuse this with making excuses for what I did, because you know what? I'm okay with it. Life happens and its a good reminder of what I'm trying to accomplish and the consequences to good and bad decisions.

Regardless. Moving on. Done with that subject.


  1. Way to go glad you put a end on that party! You go girl :)

  2. AMEN, girl! We all have days like this and it's also nice to others struggle with it too. But you're making the realization that only you can stop you from becoming who you want to be.

    Great job on putting it behind.

    Here's to a better week!

  3. You sing it sister. You are doing GREAT, don't let the other voice tell you otherwise. A bad is a flash in the pan, let it go :-) Sounds like you already have!

  4. Great attitude! I especially love "This isn't some fad intense detox for me, but rather a controlled rise into a healthier, maintainable lifestyle." So True! You aren't going to eat perfectly healthy every meal every day for the rest of your life and work out 30+ minutes a day every day for the rest of your life. It's ok to go of course from time to time as long as it doesn't turn into a permanent habbit. That has been one of the biggest obstacles for me to overcome. Not looking at it as a "bad day" and get so upset that I let it turn into a "bad week"...and so on...

    You are doing awesome! Keep it up! :)
