I just can't. I'm disappointed in myself for still sounding like a broken record. No one can get my head back in the game, but ME!!
With this intro one can only assume that I gained this week.
Well you are correcto-mondo my friend.
Dear WW tracker, 3.8 lbs is not a "bit." FYI!
I definitely DIDN'T expect it to be almost 4 pounds though. This is over two weeks, but still.
Now I cannot show you the tracker from this week because well I took 3 days off from tracking so it isn't accurate. Yes I didn't even follow through on my own rule of tracking no matter how bad it is.
This is where I wanted to say "FAIL," but since I preach "Never Failure Always Feedback." I'll just move along...
Mentally I needed a break from tracking but it didn't work. I fell of the wagon - burned the wagon - then threw the wagon off a cliff.
BUT BUT BUT today is a new day. It is the start of a Fresh Week.
Being 0.2 lbs away from the 160s was the kick in the booty I needed today.
Plus the trend of this weight tracker is NOT okay.
While I ditched tracking Friday-Sunday of this week (the time we were on the Cape), I did get back to tracking on Monday. My Weight Watchers week starts on Friday. I knew I didn't have to wait until today to start getting back on track.
So I turned that disappointment into motivation and came up with a realistic action plan for this week:
1) Track everything
2) DON'T end up in the negative
3) Reduce the amount of beer this week and try to keep it just to the weekend
4) Up my activity. While 93 APs this week is great - it is less than I was earning this time last year so I need to up that bad boy
5) I will be out of town Friday so I will weigh-in Thursday to keep me accountable
There are normal bumps in the road and while 3.8 pounds are not the end of the world in the grand scheme of my journey. It is the poor habits creeping back into my routine over the past couple of months that are really grinding my gears.
Bad habits = Negative self talk = Weight gain
Time to break that cycle. I am much more successful when I am in a positive frame of mind.
High-five to all of those folks that reached out today with words of encouragement or sharing their own struggles. We are in this together and we will all succeed.
