Weigh-In Wednesday (
Friday) Jan. 23, 2013
I seem to have fallen into the mid-month trap of complacency. It started with a “sugar free” coffee, and ended with some pizza and burgers.
I have said no to pop and opted for unsweetened iced-tea. I’ve said no to cake and cookies and pastries (and the big box of truffles that has been sitting on the desk behind me at work for two days because that’s where EVERYONE puts their leftover-to-share sugary treats… it shall henceforth be known as the Diabetes Desk…I seriously just came up with that…). Anyway, I’m making positive healthy choices more than the not-so-great-for-me choices, but I really want to be making more consistent positive choices.
Like right now, I REALLY want a mint oreo milkshake from Burgerville, and I am literally having to tell myself ‘no’ every five minutes because I’m calculating the time between now and bedtime, and if it’s worth it to go out in the rain for a 15 minute round trip. So far, my brain is winning. And I really need to restart The 21-Day Sugar Detox!
And on that note, I weighed-in (back on Wednesday morning) and was down to 287.4. A loss of 0.8 pounds. Yay? I’m happy for the loss but I know it could have been more. I’m looking to hit 285.5 by the 30th (the end of my 1st DietBet) – which would be a healthy 1.9 pound loss for this coming week. I’ll let you know!
Oh, and if you happen to be on MyFitnessPal, add me (pretty please)! Tracking is something I have a bad relationship with, but I’m trying to remember to write it all down so I can really see my track record, instead of just trying to remember when I might have eaten something, at some point, on some day. Plus it really sucks to have to enter in the pizza and burgers, and will perhaps become another small reminder that I need to keep making positive choices.
I was going to go over my Nike+ FuelBand stats in this post (because I’ve actually been wearing it every day!), but I think I’ll save it for a full post tomorrow.
Have you kept to your goals/resolutions this month? What has kept you motivated (or gotten in the way)?
