Restarting my 100 day challenge... fell off the wagon.
Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Well the first week went so well and after a mishap of giving in, I got right back on my juicing wagon and am at it again. However, even with my mess up I still lost 2.4 pounds this week.
I was emotional and just having a stressful week and gave in to eating. It's amazes me daily how my will power to do this can be swayed so easily.
I went to see a movie with my husband and had made the point of not eating. I drank an extra large glass of juice so that I could fight the temptation later. We were half way through the movie (The Hobbit) and I finally gave in. I ate popcorn. And not a lot, just a few small handfuls. Well I felt bad about doing that so when I came home and made my husband dinner , I gave in and had dinner with him.
Needless to say eating food after a week of just juicing wasn't the smartest idea. My stomach was grumbling and upset for days. Its not like I decided to eat anything healthy, no, couldn't do that. I ate pasta(gluten free) and sausage and Alfredo sauce. Very fatty and oily and I actually felt worse after doing it.
So needless to say I started over. I have been juicing for 4 days and have done great. I had a hard time during the Superbowl because of all the snacking and treats my husband had. But I made it through. I am allowing myself sugar free gum and that helps a bit. I get the Extra gum that tastes like cake and other treats, hoping this will curb my need for something sweet and different. Needless to say my jaw has been sore these last few days working through the beginning again.
Between the Superbowl, my birthday, today, our anniversary( the first time we met, still celebrate this) and Valentine's Day all this month, it is going to be a tough month. However, I feel if I can just get through this month the rest of my time will be much easier. I know I can do this! It is just a matter of telling my mind to get out of my way. So I continue on this journey and hope that in just a couple of weeks I will have accomplished this and won't want to break again.
I'm thankful for the weight loss and what I have learned in the last week. I feel confident that I will be able to accomplish my goal this time around.
96 days to go!
Here's to a bright and healthy future!
