I Feel Like I've Fallen Off the Wagon

This week has not been the best for me and it feels like I've fallen off the wagon in a way. I have only made it to the gym once all month and I think that's a bad place to be. I've had so much success recently and without the gym, I feel like I'm going to bounce back up. I am making a vow to go to the gym next week, even if I'm tired. Two weeks ago, I had some major dental work on my right side (I go back for the left side in three weeks) and am still feeling the effects. I can't sleep at night without ibuprofen because of the throbbing and no one feels like being good and working out when they don't feel well.

When I weighed myself mid-week I was up a little and that gives me the sinking feeling that I'm headed for the 160s again, which I don't want to do. Two years ago, I was in the low 160s and felt great. Now the high 150s isn't good enough. Sure, I have an entire wardrobe that fits me amazing right now, but I'm not happy with where I am. Of course, another monkey wrench in my week was that last night I was going to make the oven stew for dinner and when I went in the fridge, my beef had gone bad. I had some chicken starting to thaw in the fridge for tonight and kept going back and forth about what to do. I had pasta for lunch, so the meal it was meant for wouldn't work and if I did plain chicken breasts, I didn't have a marinade and we'd done chicken the night before. We ended up going out, which I'm sure won't help my week at all. I'm very nervous about tomorrow on the scale and crossing my fingers that I'm not above 160 and and can get my but in gear to keep losing.

  1. And if you are in the 160's, forgive yourself and keep moving forward. Easier said than done - I should know! As I always say, "It's all about the small victories." And to have a victory we truly appreciate, we have to sometimes be defeated. You can do it!
