I remember yelling, “Do over!” many-a-time as a kid when games didn’t go my way. Well, I’m feeling about the same way right now. I’d like to do over this past week. The fact that I only gained 0.8 lbs is quite short of a miracle. I might even just call it luck! And here I am, back in the 160s.
First, this week started off with dinner and drinks with friends, which then continued for several nights with different friends, to the point where I couldn’t even remotely figure out what I had eaten to even track it. I gave up.
Second, I worked out one measly day this week. There was clearly no commitment to the six days I have been aiming for. And that one day I worked out, I forgot my ActiveLink, so I didn’t even get APs for it. Of course, not that it would matter after I gave up on tracking my food!
Third, I went off the social media grid for the most part because I didn’t want to tell anyone I was doing poorly or be accountable. I didn’t do the Meatless Monday and Friend Makin’ Monday posts I had planned because it would put me “out there” for people to ask how I was doing.
Do I have an excuse? Not really. I had friends in town that I hadn’t seen in forever. And I think I just got lazy again. And maybe a little sad again. And I just decided, oh well, have your damn week “off,” and you will eventually get back to it.
So let me think about what I did right for a minute. There’s gotta be something, right? 1) I didn’t screw up at every meal. 2) At least I worked out that one day. 3) I did actually eat meatless on Monday.
So there ya have it. Not much to write home about. Obviously, I can’t actually do over this week, like you can do over a round of Rock, Paper, Scissors, but I can just do my best to get back on plan this week. I’ll just keep tryin’…
