I admit it, I've fallen prey to the Excuses Demon. I thought I would feel so much better last week admitting that I haven't been following WW for the past couple of months, blaming it on the new program. I went away from publishing that post feeling like a complete dolt. I mean, I know how to eat right and I know how to count calories if nothing else. I can even count WWPs in my head--the old way if necessary. To blame the program change is just a copout. Only I am to blame. Out of that whole long post, this line is the gist:
Maybe it's not about a new program or old program, but more about my lack of efforts, period.
I don't know why I decided to take the past couple of months off losing weight, but I can't change that fact now. What's done is done and I must keep moving forward. I didn't plan on being sick for the past two weeks, but I couldn't help that. I think I am getting better, although today I've decided to cough my head off. I still plan to log that mile, though.
And now I must get back into things. I must make the decision to go back on my "diet". I believe it is is a diet, yes. I don't think that's a bad word. I am making long term lifestyle changes, but I am "dieting" in order to lose weight. I want to reach my goal weight and in order to do that, I need to cut calories/points and get it done.
My plans for the week are not huge or unattainable. I will track everything I eat and stay within my daily points. I hope to leave some of the weekly points and all activity points on the board. I also plan to run some. I still feel pretty zapped so I'm not going to push it. One mile today; it starts there. Secretly I hope one mile feels awesome and turns into more, but given the fact that I'll be running late tonight after a birthday party, I'll be happy with one. I will report back tomorrow with the results.
I forgot to weigh in this morning which might be a good thing since we went out to Olive Garden last night and I did not eat on plan. I expect recovery will be needed.
Happy Valentine's Day! Will you celebrate today?
My husband and I don't really do a lot for Valentine's Day. I usually give him a card and some candy and he gets me something small, too. I also give my son a card and some candy. My stepmom's birthday is on Valentine's Day so we usually have dinner with my parents. Tonight will be the same.
