Falling off the wagon...
May 24, 2010 2:52pm CST
It was a hectic, stressful weekend. I had my Great Strides walk for CF on Saturday, so couldn't do my usual work out at the gym (and walking 2.5 miles is not a work out for me).. and I went way over on calories that day too. Then Sunday I just couldn't bring myself to go to the gym.. for some strange reason I felt like I didn't want to miss out on quality family time, even though we couldn't really go anywhere or do anything. So instead of working out we had a veg day where we just watched movies all day. We made pizza for dinner.. and I had a ferocious appetite.. even after dinner was over I couldn't stop eating! Ugh! So today I'm trying to get back to normal. I did my work out this morning no problem and so far have eaten a usual diet... but I have a feeling I'm going to have some trouble later tonight. I already feel like I want to snack, but at the same time I feel so guilty for not being good over the weekend.. which is probably stressing me out and making me want to snack more. Don't you hate that? I really can't say I'm falling off the wagon... I guess I'm having a temporary lapse in motivation, which happens.. How often do you have a temporary lapse in motivation? Do you have any tips for getting yourself back on track?

Hey kats! Give yourself a break! After all the weight that you lost you can surely let yourself a a "temporary lapse" on a weekend where you did a 2.5 mile walk! I am quite sure you will get right back into your routine quickly! If you have been able to come as far as you have then I have no doubt that you will have no real problem getting yourself "right back on the wagon"! You have no idea how I envy your discipline! But, the again at my age who cares!
