Off track for me comes in many forms.
A little off the wagon: usually too much snacking. Most often at night. Still exercising and hoping to atleast break even.
Kinda off the wagon: snacking too much accompanied by ordering out atleast 2 weeks in a row. Exercising every other day usually.
Almost off the wagon: skipping breakfast. Cooking high calorie meals. Plus ordering out weekly. Working out 2x a week tops.
Completely off the wagon: eating all my veggies- as well as high fat/calorie/processed food almost daily. Rarely working out, if at all.
I'm glad to say I was only " a little off the wagon" last week. I still decided not to weigh myself this past week though because the smaller I get the more strict I have to be. As soon as I take a little wiggle room I don't lose or even gain. Had I gone over, or even hit 200 again I would've been devastated. I was not going to even risk doing that to myself and feeling like the biggest failure ever. I am deff weighing myself this week though because I've done great and its scientifically impossible for me to have gained any weight this week.
My description of completely off the wagon is basically my life prior to deciding to change it. The goal is to never fall completely off the wagon. But if for some reason I do, I will need to be strong enough to get back on. I hope I don't ever revert back that far but I can't pretend it doesn't cross my mind. I'm hoping because I'm doing this by exercising and eating right I will be prepared for my smaller body and know how to treat it. It is becoming a habit. Last week when I was struggling I said to someone " I really just want to eat normal again". Normal being my "diet". Who the hell would've ever imagined id consider this my "normal"? It's been 8 months of this though, it's getting pretty normal. Imagine doing something a certain way almost everyday for 8 months straight. You should be able to do ur with your eyes closed right? I wouldn't say this gets that easy- but it goes get easier the more used to it you get. I hate when I eat like crap and I get sick, but I kind of love it. It reminds me I've rid my body of all these toxins and that's why it's reacting like this. Although it makes me regret eating whatever I ate, it's a fast reminder of what I have done.
Back on track for me means working out almost everyday(6 out of 7 days). Eating breakfast everyday. Eating low carb after lunch. Not eating anything atleast 3 hrs before bed. Not going over my max spark people suggested calorie intake(1450). Getting everything on my daily to-do list done. Walking my dog twice a day.
The last 2 arent technically part of my fitness plan but those 2 things are always screwed up when my eating is screwed up. It makes me depressed and lazy then I don't really feel like doing anything!
My accountability buddy came up with the best idea. She ordered a mini trampoline! She can jump on it and get lots of cardio and its way funner than just jumping in place! Genius!
I was at the Walmart I hate the most because it was traffic time and I didn't want to drive to Miami. Well today this Walmart got some points back because I was strolling past the workout section and there it was: a trampoline! It gets better! It has resistance bands attached! And a little monitor that counts your jumps and estimated calories burned. I will deff post pics when I put it together after work tomorrow! If you're interested- its the Gold's Gym brand and was only $38! Score.
Side note for my Facebook friends, I ended up getting a mop at Walmart :-P
