I purposely picked Monday mornings to have my weigh ins because the weekends have always been a huge stumbling block for me when I'm in weight loss mode. I feel like if I know Monday morning is coming, I can't really go ballistic the last few days of the week, which is true. I also forgot to factor in Marty because when I started going to WW again, he was out of town. Since yesterday when Marty and I were on the phone "debating" where we were going to go for dinner last night, I knew I would have to start re-thinking my weight loss strategy. Last weeks strategy was kind of 'maintain and be a little lazy cause it's week 2'; it was also week 3 of my new job and in my mind I was busy working and made a lot of excuses about working out. It forced me by Thursday night to realize I had to bust it really hard Fri, Sat and Sun before weigh in. But one phone call from Marty and I realized- this won't work again next week. It's ok that it happened this week- I think it forced me to take accountability and start thinking more pro-actively about how I'm going to face each week. Instead of making last minute plans to bust it hard- if I approach the beginning of the week with the "bust it" mentality- I should be able to coast through the weekend and be ok (in worst case scenario's). If I don't end up having dinner plans with Marty then I will end up having a great weekend to top off a super hard week. If I have another dinner extravaganza with him (which is far more realistic)...then maybe the damage won't be as critical because I already had a good week. Does this make sense? Am I crazetta?
Now if I can just make it through today...(which is tougher than you think- trust me- Sundays are the WORST for me!)
Wish me luck!
