Can't. Get. Full.

Have you ever experienced where you are shoving food in your mouth and you can't get full?  Even if you chew slowly, wait in between bites, put your fork down in between, etc?  Well that was me this week.  It started on Friday.  Of the 7 days this week I only stayed within my points for 3 of them... almost 4.  But those other 3 days... all I can say is WOW.

Part of the reason is that my lady friend is here for a visit... but the other was I was bored and sick.  I'm not one that stops eating when they are sick.  I want to eat the cardboard in the cupboard... and I did.  And it shows.  I gained 1.2 lbs this week.  Very sad about that, but at the same time, I know that this week will be better and I won't let it get me down.

A very low point for me was on Tuesday night when I couldn't work out.  I was sick with the flu and didn't want to chance the work out.  If you've kept up on my blog, you know I'm doing Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred... where you work out for 30 days in a row.  I missed ONE day... day 21.  UGH!  I felt super guilty and even posted on Facebook as to whether or not I should attempt the work out.  Granted some of them didn't know it was the flu that I had, but some were supportive and some were NOT.  Kind of made me sad, but more than that I felt guilty.  Luckily yesterday (Wednesday) I did feel better and I did the work out twice to make up for it... so I'm not counting missing a day (even tho it is in the back of my head).

By this time next week I'll be done with the work out and have some stats to share with everyone.  I'm hoping for similar stats from last time since I'm doing a level higher (should be more, but it's not turning out that way).  So I'll be very excited to be done - regardless of the outcome.

My husband is going away again this weekend (he was gone last weekend too, and that's when I do my worst).  I am taking an oath to do well this weekend with him being gone.  I need to make some great progress for my weigh in next week and I want my Jillian results to show all the hard work I've put into it.  So mark my words... this week will be a better week.

How am I going to make sure that it is?   I'm going to do some major meal planning starting with dinner tomorrow night.  I already have a healthy dinner for tonight... so all will be good there.  Wish me luck and maybe I'll post some of the yummy recipe's I make this weekend.

Take care and I hope you're not struggling like I am.  Keep up those resolutions and goals... they are very important to set and meet.  You know how good you feel when you accomplish something... think about how good you feel when you accomplish this... oh and how great you'll look too :)

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After.

  1. Looking forward to hearing your results as well. Sorry to hear you were a little sad when some people didn't support your skipping a day of workout because you were sick, but kinda kee in mind one's usual state of mind and that is once you skip it's easy to skip again - not that we think you would but it's human nature and you're only human. It wasn't that they weren't supporting you - they were but in a different way. Hope you have an easier time this weekend and enjoy your meal planning and cooking so that you aren't bored. Keep up the good work! You are inspiration to so many.
