Losing steam.

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

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.

    You have the right attitude. Forget about what happend over the weekend. Today is a new day. Everyone has those "bad" days. Keep up the good work!

    It's hard, but just remember the bigger picture. One weekend really isn't that much in the grand scheme of things. For a while it was impossible for me to think like that, but with eating disorders and obsessive exercising finally behind me I can testify that it's possible to overcome and to succeed. And you're absolutely right about Romans 8:1.

    You're exactly right. You can't change this weekend. It happens. We all have bad days, weeks, etc. It's about how you pick yourself up and handle today :)
