First, when I'm super tired, I'm worthless when it comes to being healthy. I don't want to workout. I don't want to take the time to find and prepare healthy foods. I'm too tired. This is happening to me now. I got 4 hours of sleep and I'm wiped out. For breakfast this morning I had a bagel without the diet coke from Bagelmania (5 points with the lowfat butter), but I've gone 5 days without Diet Coke this week and it's getting HARD. The headaches are finally gone (I had them for 4 days), but the craving is still there, I think esp because I'm so tired. I almost caved, but luckily I had some gum that I popped in my mouth and it helped me to forget about the craving for the DC. I made it without Diet Coke again! Whew. :) BTW, chewing gum is a lifesaver for me. It seriously gets me through everything lately. I look like a cow chewing it all the time, but I don't care as long as I'm a skinny cow.
The second thing I noticed is that I seem to be really really good for 2 days, and then I start craving bad foods. This has also happened to me this week, which I think is part of the reason I'm so slow at losing weight. I did AMAZING Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday was HORRIBLE, and then Thurs and Friday were amazing again. Today (day 3) I'm struggling again. I don't want anything healthy. I want a fat greasy burger, some fries, and a coke. Not even a diet coke, a cherry coke. An ice cold Cherry Coke- a HUGE one. And my greasy burger? Tons of melted cheese. MMMMMMMM!!!!!
But I will NOT relent this week because I am super close to having a good week and I want to make it one week and have a decent drop. It won't be huge because Wed was so bad, but I feel like if I can do really well this week, it might be easier for me next week to have a perfect week. (Perfect meaning I work out 6 days of the week and stay within my points daily). That's the goal- to stay within my points everyday and workout everyday for one week. I am so close to getting out of the 140's, and I'm really motivated (as I keep saying) to just get it over with. If I can really stick with it and stay focused, I could be out of the 140's in as little as 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. That's insane to me! Right before Valentine's! I have 36 days left of my 70 day challenge (half way there!!!!), and i'm still aiming to lose 7 pounds before March 2nd. However, if I am successful in the next few weeks as I hope to be, I will have lost 5-6 pounds by Valentine's which gives me a few more weeks to get into the 130's before March 2nd. Can you believe this? I can't even believe I'm talking about being in the 130's soon. I cannot believe it. I will be so so so so overjoyed when I finally get back into the 130's. I love the 130's. I especially love the low 130's. I love the feeling of being confident and loving my body and feeling like I can do anything I want to. I love feeling in shape and sleek and sexy and feminine. But now I'm just getting excited about the 130's again. :)
Two more days til weigh in! I think I pumped myself up enough to go to the gym!
