Did you read my last post? The one where I was talking about finding balance and being OK with not losing as much weight this round? The one where I was trying to convince myself that making less-than-great food choices was OK because I was learning to adjust to this being my real life?
Yup, I’m calling bullshit on it all.
I haven’t been seeing results on the scales purely due to food choices. My training has been great and I’m running lots and loving it. But over the Christmas/New Year/Birthday couple of weeks I let a few things sneak back into my diet. I was still writing out my food plans and eating well for breakfast but for lunch I was having two (!) salad sandwiches, sometimes the same for dinner. Plus my snacks, while still relatively healthy, were too many and too often.
So I’m back to counting calories, completing food plans and actually ticking off each meal to ensure compliance. That said, I obviously have to readjust to the drop in calories because I’m ready to eat the ar$e out of a low flying duck!
But I’m also feeling better than I have in ages. I’m going to get back into this thing, get my bum into gear and start making sure that I blitz the last couple of weeks. I intend to get into the 80’s before Finale because I absolutely, unequivocally refuse to feel like I don’t deserve to go to Finale.
So, consider my arse well and truly kicked!
PS – Thanks to all the people that responded to my post about excuses. I appreciated every comment and acknowledge the wisdom in all of them. When I am nearer goal weight and actually earn the right to review my food choices, I will gladly revisit and implement the great advice.
