Ok. Let's pretend it's Monday and start again.
Oh. Monday? Already?
And you wonder why I haven't had a Biggest Loser post? Well ... it's time to face the music. Time for some radical honesty. Time for me to start being accountable again.
I was doing so well - and then Sun Peaks happened. We went away for a few days, and our menu plan consisted of easy-to-pack food (pasta, lasagne etc ...). We played games late into the evening - with the munchies always within an arms reach. We didn't pack a stroller - didn't have the room in the van - so getting outside for exercise wasn't happening as much as it should've.
Ok - but that was WEEKS ago. But what happened was I got off track and now I'm ready to get back on.
I'm not weighing myself today (which is really tomorrow for me right now ... ). I'm going to cut myself some slack - BUT I do know that I've gained 2lbs (you do the math ...) and I'm HOPING to start next Monday at where I left off before the New Year.
That's the plan.
But in all of this, I've learned that I'm SUCH an emotional eater. When my hubby was away - I was lonely in the evenings, and I ate. When I was upset, I ate. When I was struggling with the imbalance of hormones that most new moms feel, I ate.
It stops now. My goal for this week is to drink more water, have no white carbs after 2pm (so, whole grains for supper), and no "treats". I also will be committing to ride the bike 20min every day.
Are any of you still doing your own version of the Biggest Loser? Am I alone with the little break that I had *grin*? How are you doing with it? Any tips? Any venting? Venting feels good *grin* ...
