Well I take full responsibility since I know exactly what I have done over the last few weeks. I had a drinking evening with friends, I've been eating a lot phase 2 veggies (and not following the serving size restrictions) and I've also eaten more phase 2 carby stuff, and some phase 2 snacky things. And most importantly, I stopped keeping a food journal for a couple of weeks.
I never full out cheated (meaning that I still have not had any processed carbs or sugar), but that's not the point. I lost a bit of momentum and maybe I needed a bit of break. Even though nothing like bread or pasta or rice or sweets or chips or anything like that has touched my lips, I have been sloppy with my diet. And even though on phase 2 I'm allowed 8oz of wine in one day, on my drinking night, I had like 48oz!!!!!! Yeah, I went a bit overboard, but I'm also exaggerating on the 48oz:)
So am I upset? Nope. Not even a bit. I think I needed a bit of room to wiggle and now I'm good to go back onto strict phase 1 again. I'm getting weighed in less than two weeks and I want to see the scale go down. In two weeks today, I start the learn to run clinic with Enz. I'm soooooooo excited. We're also looking to sign up for gentle yoga with the local Parks and Rec. So I really need to get my butt moving, and that will also help with the weight-loss. On a positive note, I still do the stairs all the time!
|I really hope that this is my yoga instructor...|
I think I was getting lazy (and bored) with my meals and was making the same things over and over. I have a bunch of new recipes to check out and I will start posting recipes again. I was going to try some out this weekend, but new recipes will be delayed one more week because my hubby is away for the weekend and I have to keep the boy entertained. So in order to get my weight-loss back on track, I have started back on strict phase 1 again, and I'm keeping my food journal again. In a couple of weeks, I'll also be running three times a week. I'm looking forward to seeing the changes once again!
