This week, I didn’t manage to lose any weight, instead I gained a pound. I am not surprised by this because to be completely honest I haven’t stuck to my diet and exercise much this week. After last week’s realization about how badly carbs affect my body, I still found myself self-sabotaging all week long, even though I knew it would make me feel like crap. I gave into my cravings, didn’t plan low-carb meals, and rarely exercised. The entire week was a flop.
I don’t really know why I did this to myself, except that it felt easy. I had a week off between classes and we were snowed in for four days, so I could have worked out more and spent more time on preparing low-carb foods, instead I took the easy route. I felt confined and bored, so I indulged in food and laziness, two things I would indulge on in the past when feeling bad. I even stayed away from blogs for the most part so that I didn’t have to face everyone else who was doing the right thing, I didn’t want dragged out of my funk.
But as quickly as all the negativity came, it disappeared just as quick. Yesterday I was able to leave my house, hang out with some friends, and get my hair done. I restocked my kitchen with healthy, low-carb foods and bought a new workout game that I can do with my children. Today the sun is shining, temps are rising, and the snow is finally melting; I am feeling good and ready to put in the work needed to continue losing weight and getting healthy.
I don’t know what caused my problems this week, but I am glad it is over!
