Hiccoughs

Well, I got back from my trip very proud of myself. I’d managed to eat clean and work out as scheduled, and it was with some anticipation that I got on the scales on Wednesday morning, expecting to have dropped below the 15 stone mark (210lbs). Instead, I was quite horrified to see, I was up 1.5lbs from Sunday. And it was fat, not lean muscle that had changed.

And to make matters worse, I felt rough all day and didn’t manage to work out. In fact, I slept for most of the day. As I had planned to go to the supermarket, after my trip, this also meant that I didn’t have very much food in the house. Veg in particular was either all used up or all gone off. So food in my few waking hours was a bit of a problem. I had to resort to a couple of shakes, using Beyond Greens, but still managed to use up the rest of my cheat meals for the week, plus one. Not a good day. At least I felt bad about it – I wanted to eat properly, so that’s something I guess.

This morning, I was down 0.4lbs, but it was LBM, not fat. Must get back to my workouts. Still feeling a bit rough though. Need to go to the post office and to pick up some dry cleaning, and since the weather is quite nice I think l’ll walk instead of drive. If I feel a bit better later I will get my overdue weights workout in this afternoon.

In the past, hiccoughs like these would have sent me straight to chocolate bars and fried food. This time, I don’t want to give up so easily. So that’s my triumph for today. Like Dr JB says, it’s attitude change that will carry you forward and get you results.

    Excellent attitude.

    I think it’s very important to be proud of yourself for WANTING to eat clean and get your exercise in, and working with what you had to do the best you could. Sometimes we’ve got to listen to our bodies and sleep instead of exercising; there’s a big difference between habitually skipping out on a workout and recognizing your needs.

    Question: How’s your liquid intake? I know if I’m not on top of it (mostly water, sometimes tea or juice), my weight fluctuates like crazy!

    Hi Marianne,

    Thanks for the moral support. By the way, am I allowed to recognise my need for a chocolate fudge brownie sundae?

    Thought not. Oh, well. Water intake was very good while I was away. I’ll just try and keep on track and see where the chocolate chip cookie crumbles come weigh and measure day on Sunday.

    Heh – is the choco-fudge-brownie-sundae an actual *need*? 😛

    Good attitude – stick with your plan for the rest of the week, and just see what happens. You can reassess from there and make changes next week if you need to!
