Falling off the wagon

August 18, 2007 at 12:58 pm 4 comments

To my regular readers, I’d like to apologise for the gap between postings. Truth be told, I’ve been too ashamed to post. Not only have I fallen off the wagon this week, but the wagon has then backed up and reversed over me a number of times. Basically, I’ve been baaaaaad.

I’ve barely had a PN-compliant meal all week. I haven’t wanted to work out. So far, I’ve only managed one turbulence training weights workout and about half an hour of standing pilates on the day I was teaching. No cardio. Nothing. I really don’t know what’s gotten in to me. I’ve been a bit down and I really just couldn’t be bothered.

But I figured I’d have to post on this blog at some point. The whole reason for writing it and putting those awful pictures of me up for all to see was to keep me accountable. So feel free to kick my ample ass and get me back in line.

    Have you seen what my quote of the week is this week? I think it might help you as much as it’s helping me this week. I’m having an off week too – I had pizza for dinner last night, for heaven’s sake!

    Is it worth writing about what made you get down and let the wagon get away from you, just to get those thoughts out of your head?

    Hi Marianne,

    I’ve had some tough unpalatable decisions to make this week, with the sensible decision, now made, being a bit of a blow to my self esteem. My own tendency towards depression and self loathing kicked in and I suppose I went into self destruct mode. I think this is a pattern with me – ‘punishing’ myself physically for my emotional crises instead of nurturing myself when things get tough.

    Can’t say I’ve handled it particularly brilliantly… I even knew I was doing it, but couldn’t stop; and of course, then I can loathe myself even more, so I destruct even more; like a runaway train. I suppose old habits die hard.

    Like most of who managed to get to these huge weights, emotional eating tends to play a big role, and I’d no doubt benefit from a bit of serious therapy. May ask my doctor for a referral next time I’m there, because I’m not sure I can break the pattern on my own.

    By the way, where do I find your ‘comment of the week’?

    Ah, found it, and I’ve added you to my blogroll. If you don’t mind, I’ll post it here:

    “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” -Emerson

    I always liked Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. No, seriously, Ralph Waldo Emerson was a wise man. This week, though, tomorrow has been a new day with brand new opportunities to f*** it all up!

    I forgive myself, and won’t keep beating myself up. If I could just motivate myself to do a workout….
