I don’t even want to take a peak at how long it’s been since I posted here. Because let’s admit it’s been far too long. In the time since I’ve been here I have been one hell of a yo-yo dieter. To extreme levels. Well, actually, maybe not so much extreme yo-yoing as it is extreme bad choices, gaining weight, and then feeling guilty for a day (an hour?) before screwing up again.
My will power. Sucks.
So here’s the deal. I’m back at it. Fall off, jump back on. Does that create yo-yoism? To keep trying? I’m not sure. Regardless, I’m taking another stab at whole30. It’s a strange time to try it considering I’ll be doing a lot of traveling in the upcoming months but now is the time and I shall put my best foot forward.
So today is Day 2 and so far a successful one at that. I know Saturday I will fall off the wagon because I know that I am 1. Going to drink beer at Preakness and 2. There will probably be extremely limited Whole30 friendly food choices at Preakness. I am going to attempt to pack something Whole30 friendly though, but let’s face it – once the beer starts flowing chances are the shitty foods will follow. And I’m going to feel bad. And then I’m going to go RIGHT back to it. I won’t cheat when I’m at my friend’s house before hand or after. I won’t cheat on any days up to or following. I know that it’s going to be a bad day. So I guess my whole30 will once again be restarting on Sunday. From what I read, if you fall off you have to restart. Dammit.
I think that’s part of my problem with this plan though. Slips aren’t tolerated. And let’s face it, sometimes you just need a cookie. Or sometimes there are just occassions when…
I mean, sure I could just not go to preakness, but I do want to have fun with my friends… Le Sigh… we shall see.
I’m also working on quitting smoking (which will also suffer on Saturday with the beer issue…). Yup, I’m taking a whole bunch in at once. Maybe I’m setting myself up for failure. Maybe I’m just so sick of being unhealthy. Also, 2 consecutive days at the gym. Let’s try for 3 tomorrow (everything goes so well the first few days before the weekend comes and it falls to shit…)
Current Weight: 172. (As of yesterday). No more weigh ins for 30 days. YIKES!!
