You may or may not have noticed, but I decided to take the weekend off from my blog to spend some with my family. I hadn’t really taken a break from this blog so I figured this was as good a weekend as any. While I was on that same train of thought, I realized that I haven’t had any cheat meals or anything. I’ve been rather good. It was also Super Bowl weekend so I thought I’d participate with my cousin and sister. I decided to have my first cheat day. Yes, I said cheat day. I know in a previous post I said not to do cheat days, but rather, cheat meals. That principle went out the window on Friday. I prepped myself all day yesterday by not eating much of anything until the game. Solid plan, right? No. I was so anxious to eat by the time of the game that I overate rather quickly.
Here’s a rare glimpse of me eating last night:
Before I knew it, I was carrying a food baby…
Yes, I stumbled and fell. I learned a very valuable lesson and this is not an experience I plan to repeat. In these two days before my weigh-in (and thereafter), I plan to eat as clean as possible. I plan to do all the right things. I will push my body to the brink, but I will not expect anything on Wednesday. If I do gain, I will accept my part, pick myself up, and I will continue. I told a friend of mine that I have a hard time accounting for the future, but I think this is a good time to change that. I have to stop living for that next weigh-in. I only seem to think about how the things I do today will effect my results on Wednesday. That’s something I need to learn to let go of. Today is a new day and I have another opportunity to better myself.
Anyway, I’ve missed you guys! From what I’ve read, you’ve all been doing exceptionally well! I know some of you had a much more successful Sunday than me. Oh, and don’t y’all worry, this weekend was not my reward for losing 30 pounds! I have something else planned for that. As the day/event draws nearer, I’ll share it with you. 😀
Until next time,
