Support Group Time: When you slip off your getting-healthy plan, do you ever have trouble getting back on track? If so, what do you do?
I'm having such a hard time getting back on track after my slip up last week. I could give all kinds of excuses: nothing tastes good, healthy food is boring, I'm sick (which I am), there's nothing healthy in the house, and so on, but the truth is, they are all excuses.
My goal was (nope, IS) to get to 185 pounds by December 31 2010, which is only 7 weeks away (49 days). I put 7 pounds back on so back at 210.6 pounds means I have to lose 25 pounds in 49 days, or about 1 pound every 2 days.
And yet, I found myself wandering my freezing cold house last night, looking for something to snack on. Like a big ole burger. Or nachos. Or cake. Was it because winter's here? We had snow yesterday... about 4-6 inches in just a couple of hours. Was it because I had to turn on the heat when the day before, we were roasting in long pants and short sleeves? Was it because I'm not done working out the horror that was my 10 days of "vacation"?
Probably all of those, and more.
But the point is that I'm having a hard time just DOING what I did effortlessly just two weeks ago.
So.... what do YOU do to get back on plan?
Yet another delay - I honestly started back on my writing, while preparing to get the house ready to sell and monitoring my son's epilepsy ... then it happened. Another lump ...
