Previously I was all "YES I CAN" when it came to my Thanksgiving Plan. It seems, however, that my brain had other plans. I had a gain of 3 whole freaking pounds this week. I can't say I'm hugely shocked, really. I started out last week with the intent of "eating lightly" for the week in preparation for Thanksgiving. Clearly my willpower took a Thanksgiving break because once I started the downward spiral somewhere around mid-Tuesday, it was really all downhill from there.
Incidentally, with 3 pound gain, that puts me below my first incentive mark. Do I have to give my flowers back?
In the past I'd have taken this as an "omen" that the whole weight loss thing wasn't going to work and what the hell, yes I will have that leftover pie. But not this time. A gain is a wake up call. Time to get my ass back on the wagon, chalk last week up to experience and give this week hell. (Have you noticed I blog less when I'm eating like a fiend?)
For what it's worth, I have been to the gym already this morning, planned the rest of the week's workouts and have dedicated myself to flogging (keeping a food log) EACH AND EVERY DAY, no matter what. I will do my very best to post my daily flogs here for the world to see. That keeps me way more accountable than "I'll have 2 rice krispie treats now, and later on I'll do a workout dvd. I don't know about your house, but "later" is about as elusive as all those socks our dryer seems to eat.
LET'S ALL GIVE THIS WEEK SOME HELL!!
