Diet Compliance

The past week I haven’t been very diet compliant. I think I am tired of eating the same things every day even though it’s pretty good. Also tired of the small portions. This past week I had lox and bagel, a big burrito, some pastries, brownie, lemon bar, chai latte, half of a guacamole burger, rice krispie treat, garlic parmesan wings and french fries with blue cheese dressing. It’s like everyday last week I ate something that wasn’t on my menu plan.

Last week I drank alot of alcohol, I went to a wine tasting and I had like 6 glasses of wine that night. Friday I went out with my boyfriend and my neighbor Angela and got really drunk off several vodka martinis and a margarita. Saturday I had a margarita and sangria at a wedding reception. Alcohol is very difficult for me to resist.

I would like to blame it all on my period but I just don’t think my period caused an entire week of not being compliant. I think it has more to do with a mental fatigue with boring eating. I’ve been trying to stay around 20o0 calories but I think the alcohol put me over on a couple of days. I’m up 2 lbs from 251 to 253. Some of that might be from my period though.

I think in the past I would have given up on losing weight when I had a week like that. I can remember buying a box of donuts back in 2007 when I was trying to lose weight and the next thing I did was order an entire pizza and eat it, then an entire cake. I just kept going down the rabbit hole and gave up. That’s what scared me when I looked at my eating this past week, I was worried that I was going to give up.

I exercised every day regardless of how I ate. I walked 5 miles on saturday with a HUGE hangover. In fact I still felt drunk while I was walking. I was really out of it but I pushed myself.

My trainer wanted me to take some progress photos. I decided to take them in a red bikini that is 4 sizes too small. I’m going to retake them in this same bikini once a month and hopefully I will eventually not look a hot mess in it.

Man I REALLY need a posing coach. Thats going to be a priority when I get closer to my goal.

    I used to have a tonnnn of issues with diet compliance too. I just try to remember that eating whatever – a piece of cake, a cupcake, a bag of Snickers, whatever – will only make me happy while I”m eating it, and afterwards I’ll spend a much longer period of time feeling disappointed/worried/etc. I think being conscious of what you’re doing and the fact that you want to stop is HUGE!
