I think we all can relate to this blog! Isn't it just ridiculous that we work very hard to lose the added weight we have, and I don't care if it's 5,10 or 20 pounds. It's just plain hard. I know my problem isn't enough workout, but food choices. I know food brings me a lot of comfort, especially when I work out so much, (teaching 14 classes per week). So in the back of my mind I think I workout 3 times a day, pilates, powertone, power yoga and cardio interpersed throughout those 14 classes, plus I love to walk 3 miles and talk with Gerri, my friend 3 times a week So I can eat what I want. I must have a very odd relationship with food.
In fact, I probably view food as a "whew, I deserve this, I have worked very hard today!" reward! Now, guys, I don't eat huge amounts and I eat a very balanced diet. I work at getting 2 1/2 proteins, 3 fruits, 4 vegetables, 3 starches, 1 dairy, 1 fat, 8 glasses of water daily. I journal it and everything, BUT I gained a pound today! Hello!!!! So I can go between getting discouraged and eat a cookie or I can just say, okay you'll do better next week, Keep trying!!!
Well, today I feel like eating a cookie! Glad I have a LAWL cookie, so I'm enjoying that right now as I type! AND then I'll go back to working on it and keep those 5 pounds from getting to 10. It's just plain hard period the end. It just doesn't matter how much you have to lose, it's our mindset and our determination. Soooooo dig deep, deni!!! The Easter Eggs are here Yicks!
