Originally, I wasn’t going to talk about this. Keep it a strictly celebratory post and just move on. That wouldn’t be real though, and above all else, that is what I hope to achieve here.
I’ve started doing my weigh-ins on Saturdays again. It gives me more time to sleep during the week and allows me the extra time to take my measurements and progress pictures. It also gives me more reason to stick to my plan on Friday night, which is always one of my biggest problems.
My weigh-in was awesome (11 pounds down!), and I was feeling really good about it. I thought that my success would help me stay on track for the rest of the weekend. Why would I do anything to derail the progress that I’ve been making these past couple of weeks?
Instead, I celebrated this milestone, in true Kristian fashion, with eating. Back on the Binge Wagon I go. Saturday night and Sunday were ridiculous. All of the leftover stuff from the open house last weekend? Yep, mine. Frozen pizza? Mine. Wine? Absolutely.
Like every binge, I felt really good when I was doing it. Followed closely by guilt and disgust. Did that stop me? Nope.
Where does the non-scale victory come in? Even though it started on Saturday and continued into Sunday, I stopped eating ridiculously on Sunday night. My brain finally started working and was able to say no. Even with the Johnny Rocket’s kid’s meal that I ate on Tuesday, I’ve been able to stay within my daily points every day this week. It’s a small victory but a victory nonetheless.
Onto something happier though – since last week’s post, I’ve officially completed Week 1 of Couch to 10k as well as the first day of the second week! I’m having issues with my phone though, so no pictures as proof. You’ll just have to take my word for it. Since I can’t use the app on my phone either, I’m planning to bike until Saturday when I should (hopefully) have my phone back. Then it’s back to training like normal!
Just because I needed it today.
Linking up with KTJ for non-scale victories!
