Seriously after 11 weeks of Lean Eating this past one has been the hardest and the most depressing. I knew at the beginning of the week our new habit was to cut back on carbs, and I knew this habit above all others is nearly impossible.
I am not a big fan of veggies, I said it! I like eggs minus spinach, tomatoes, zucchini and whatever else you veggie lovers might put in eggs. Yuck! For breakfast I want something quick, but unless I workout before breakfast oatmeal is out of the question as is cereal. Food this week has become complicated and therefore unmanageable.
So this week I really think I’ve taken 4 giant leaps backwards and through myself a pity party stuffed with pizza, wine, banana bread, pasta, and beer. Coupled with snow, rain, and freezing temps I was on the slippery slope down. I finally crashed this morning when I had to step on the scale and wrap a tape measure around my waist.
My first thought is to quit, and I’ll be the first one to admit it. I am a saboteur. I knew the habit but instead of setting myself up with success I did just the opposite. Maybe because I believe failure is inevitable so to accept that today is better then waiting until the end of the year. Whatever the reason I want out of this crazy cycle!
I recognize the problem, and I am it. I find any excuses and run with it until I am knee deep in tears. I will not give up! I started this journey and like all of life it has it’s ups and downs, lessons to glean and mature in. I cannot promise that I will be smaller in a year, but I’ll be different because I will have given it my best.
Today I am recommitting to the process of Lean Eating. I will start with each habit, mark it off as I do it, and workout like I promised I would.
Nike was on to something….Just do it!
