Frustrated with Myself

I had a good day yesterday, but my evening wasn’t so great. I ended up eating some chocolate…and then felt terrible for it. Hubby has since hid the chocolate.

I weighed this morning and am back up to where I started!! Who knows what I weighed yesterday…ugh.

Why is it that something always comes up to derail my weight loss? I need to learn to roll with the punches a lot better.

But I’m not going to stop blogging about it this time just because I’m having a hard time and not being very successful at the moment.

For breakfast, I ate an egg sandwich with a bowl of fruit and skim milk.

While working, I sipped on an iced latte.

On my break, I ate a light string cheese.

My FIL gave us a big cabbage from their garden and I had it sitting on the counter. When we came downstairs this morning, there were all of these little tiny dots by the cabbage. I wasn’t sure what it was, so I cleaned them all up. Later on in the morning, I noticed more little dots.

So I peeled off the first layer and look what I found.

Ewwww!! Not sure if the little dots were from that little guy or what? I love fresh garden produce but finding bugs just grosses me out.

If we’re slow at work and we have all of our work done, we’re free to spend the time as we choose. Since I work from home, I get to do things like fold laundry.

I love being able to work from home!!

For lunch, I ate tomato sandwiches on light bread with light miracle whip.

Yummy! These are our first home grown tomatoes from the in law’s garden.

I also ate sliced Missouri peaches.

After lunch, I worked for a couple of hours for job #2. I am happy with what I got accomplished today!

For a snack, I ate a small apple with PB.

I was still hungry, so I ate some Special K wheat crackers.

For supper, I made scalloped cabbage and ate that with 1/4 cup light cottage cheese and a slice of light bread with a little chocolate PB.

I was out of points, but ate vanilla ice cream anyways. Forgot to take a picture of it. If I hadn’t eaten all of my weekly points over the weekend, I’d be ok right now… I can’t wait for Thursday to get here so I can just start fresh. I can’t seem to get it together. I am so frustrated with myself. Sad smile

Tonight, we really are going to the pool. Last night, I wasn’t in the mood to do anything so I went to bed early. I will make myself swim laps.

Marcelle asked if I drink water. I drink TONS of water. At least 9 cups of pure water a day, usually more.

I’m just hoping that my issues are hormone related and I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling myself again, and my weight will drop right back off. It’s probable that’s the issue—but it doesn’t help when I don’t eat perfectly either!

How’s your week going?

  5. Does blogging your food help keep you accountable? If so, it might be good to try blogging the previous day's meals in the morning, which would include everything you had after dinner and at night. Maybe that will help give you a bit more impetus to stay on track?

    It does seem you have some mental block that is sabotaging you.

  6. I feel hesitant to say anything, but try googling sugar sensitivity. A friend of mine pointed it out to me recently. I'm not saying you have it or I have it, but I know I could definitely relate to what I was reading. For me, one dessert leads to another dessert. I guess lots of people only have dessert once a week or so. I seem to think there is a NEED for at least one dessert (sometimes two) every day. Good luck to you.

  7. It's great that you are working at getting back on track. You remind me a lot of myself - maybe something more strict that WW is what you need to get kick started?

  8. Thanks for answering my question. As I told you water is my struggle! :(
    I've been cutting back my sugar daily to 30g and under and also struggling to drop those extra kgs!

  11. I struggle so much in the evenings. I literally after lunch have to plan every bite for the rest of the day or I will blow it once my kids are in bed. Usually I save a treat for the evening. (A good one. Like ice cream!)

  13. Simple habits you can get dramatic results that are not achievable through diet and exercise alone. No diet and exercise plans, no pills, no hype and no phony promises. It's simple, it's easy and it
