Every time, people. I certainly don't need any sympathy because it is insane the way I continue to sabotage myself. I admit that I did not overdose on queso this weekend, so that's great. BUT...I discovered Nutella. Now I have had Nutella on dessert pizza or in fondue or some other thing at a restaurant, but I have never had it just at home in a jar. I needed peanut butter and thought Nutella might be a nice alternative. HAHAHAHAHA!!!
I can honestly say that I had no will power this weekeing when it came to that stuff. I have already determined that I will not be buying it again. And I'm happy to say that at least I got the small jar!! :) I will do my best to portion out what's left.
Okay, now that is all out, I do want to say that I did a few things last week that I'm glad of:
- Like I mentioned before, Mon-Thurs were stellar and Friday wasn't bad.
- I finished another book, so that is three for the year. Right on schedule after lagging behind early! (11/22/63, The Fault in Our Stars, & Unbroken) I started Sarah's Key and I've already gotten a good start.
- I got a couple of drawers cleaned out. I crashed and burned when it came to my household organizing goals for the year. But I don't want to let that keep me from doing SOMETHING. So, two drawers it is. It is something.
I may not be setting any records and I still get frustrated...but for the first time ever, I had two back-to-back years of actual weight loss (small or large). AND even as I continue to "not lose", I can see changes in my body. So, I don't want people to see my continued psyching myself up as a loss (the bad kind). Because to me, it isn't. Every time I get back on the horse is a win. Because in the days pre-band, I wouldn't do that. Well, maybe after I gained 10 or 50 pounds.
So, all you fellow peeps out there that feel like you are treading water: appreciate the fact that for once, you aren't drowning!! Onward!
Hmmm...I'm awfully cheerleaderish today. Ha!
