The Brutal Truth = 3 lbs
Tuesday, October 08, 2013
My WW weigh-in today saw a 3 pound gain from last week.
The brutal truth is that I didn't track my food and I made some very unhealthy choices last week. Like thinking it would be safe to buy a box of Oreos for the house. All gone in one day. Eaten by me. There were many more choices like that, although none quite that unhealthy.
The brutal truth is that if I eat the way I used to eat, I'll put on the pounds and get fatter. There is no way around it.
The brutal truth is that if I don't track my food, then I "forget" what I've eaten and convince myself that regular unhealthy choices won't put on the pounds. Until they do.
The brutal truth is that if nothing changes, nothing changes.
The beautiful truth is that all I have to do is eat foods that nourish my body in healthy amounts and I'll eventually be a healthy weight.
The brutal truth is that to reach that beautiful truth, I need to maintain my healthy routines. Here are the things I did NOT do this last week:
Did not do a grocery shop on Sunday and clean, pare, and cut veggies and fruit.
Did not track what I ate.
Did not stay away from soda pop, even though it's diet, it still starts a craving cycle.
Did not get good sleep, so I was more vulnerable to carb and sugar cravings.
I did swim twice and have a good walk. But, as someone else wrote on a Spark Blog - your mouth can always eat faster than your body can move!
Today is another day, today I choose healthy foods and activities. Today is it.
