I've been doing HORRIBLY this past week. Since about Thursday, I completely stopped exercising, *thinking* of exercising, and even tracking my food, really. I know it was a holiday weekend and I could blame it on that (cookout every day this weekend), but really, I just didn't care about what I ate, or how much of it I ate. I was just hungry and let my brain convince me that I've practically been starving myself, so I deserved to eat whatever I wanted.
Clearly that's a LIE. I was feeling good about eating better (and better portions), not feeling deprived at all, really, and meeting the goal of 1200-1550 calories/day was feeling really satisfying. But I totally regressed this weekend. No motivation at all.
But if I've learned anything from being on this site, it's that beating myself up about this past weekend won't do a SINGLE shred of good. I've just got to put it behind me and hop back up on the wagon, get going again without all the condemnation and self-hate. "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus," after all (Romans 8:1).
I don't know, guys. I think I can do it. But it's just getting harder.
