Heaving myself back onto the wagon

So I gained weight while I was on training... that was pretty much a given and totally expected.  But was it worth it you ask?  Nope not at all.  The food that I inhaled was not super yummy homemade like your Mom makes can't leave it on the plate kinda food.  It was just free food.  I let the idea of free food get to that part of my brain that likes free stuff.  It wasn't free at all, I'm totally paying for it and it wasn't even good food. 

Bottom line is that I'm not going to crank up a pity party just for me.... I'm just going to heave and haul my ass back up on to the wagon and start truckin' in the right direction :)

I'm down 2 pounds from what I had gained, but I'm still almost a full 3 pounds above what I was the week before.  I'm sure this won't be the last time I gain, but next time, I'm going to hope that it's not as big of a gain.

  1. I think we all fall into that trap! I'm trying to plan for two bbqs and a picnic this weekend, so I don't end up suffering for it. I think strategy helps, but also planning around those slip-ups, and not beating yourself up for them. They're normal -- everybody falls into those traps.
    You're making the effort to get back onto the wagon, that's what counts! You could just as easily (or easier, rather!) just give up, and be lazy. But you don't! I'm proud of you :)
