Other than Tuesday my eating has been on track. I guess I can celebrate that. Usually when I'm tired, my willpower weakens and those are the times I end up in the most trouble. Last night I found myself having a conversation with ME in my head. "Why do I feel anxious right now? Could it be weigh-in? Mmmm I want something delicious. NO, I just had something delicious (bananas, greek yogurt and graham cracker crumbs), I'm not hungry and I don't need anything".
Why do negative things always seem more prominent that the positives? It's not like I've been sedentary and binge eating. I still walked Monday and Thursday, and did my ChaLEAN lifting workouts, and oh yeah RAN 10k on Sunday. **
I this is where I usually run into problems with my "extremist" side. I end up feeling like a failure if I'm only giving 80% instead of 110%. How do I plan on overcoming that now, and in the future. Well, first thing is recognizing it. Done. Next is to write about it. Doing. Then I need to recognize that I am still miles away from where I started and moving in the right direction. I may not be going at the same pace as I like to, but regardless I will get there.
I'm going to give my body a few more days of easy, and then I want to hit next week HARD! I start ChaLEAN Push phase on Monday, and I'm really excited to build some more muscle!
**I love writing these blogs. Sometimes, half-way through a post, I'll have a realization that helps me see something I was not able to see before. Where the astrisks are is right where this happened for me today :)
