I've made some really bad food choices this week, and I was feeling pretty down about it all weekend. I've been spending way too many PointsPlus on sweets. I don't mind using some every day for a sweet treat, but it was pretty ridiculous this week (I spent more PP on sweets than I did on regular food!), so I'm going to work really hard to rein it in. I want to feel GREAT for my half-marathon on Saturday!
I am proud that I didn't let the overeating of sweets turn into a
binge, though. It was SO hard not to, but a long conversation with Jerry helped
me quite a bit, and kept me on track. I'm so glad that Easter is over,
and the candy at the stores is almost gone (Kroger has Cadbury Creme
Eggs on sale for a quarter each!)
I'm also proud of the fact that I have been going on lots of walks lately. I should start keeping track of my mileage, just out of curiosity. I probably walked about 15 miles this week, in addition to my running.
Anyway, I did not let the poor choices make me say "screw it" and eat everything in sight, and for that I'm proud. I'm back on track and had a great day today. I'm not sure what my weekly weigh-in will show on Wednesday, but I can handle it, even if it's a legitimate gain.
Reading your Motivational Monday accomplishments has me fired up to have a great week! Here is what a few readers have been up to:
Shanna finished her first 5K in 42:19! When she first started walking/running, she couldn't even go a half mile without "wanting to die". Since late December, she's lost 26 pounds!
Leslie has been trying to get into the 170's for a very long time, and this weekend, she finally did it. She's lost a total of 93 pounds, and just PR'ed a 5K, taking 6 minutes off of her time from the same race last year! (The photo shows a comparison of last year's race and one year later...)
Danielle hit a huge milestone in her weight loss this week--the big 50-pound mark! She's lost 52 pounds in five months by doing Weight Watchers and exercising.
As always, there is a ton of motivation to be found on the Facebook post. Here are just a few:
If you ever want to share an accomplishment, you can always e-mail a photo with the subject "RfCMM" to SlimKatie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com, and I may include it on a Motivational Monday post. (Make sure you use that subject, or "Motivational Monday", because it's basically your way of saying you don't mind if I include it on the blog.)
