Mission (Un)Accomplished!

I got on the scale and it read 129.4!!! I couldn't see my body fat percentage or fat in lbs like usual because the scale at the gym was not acting properly. I wanted so badly to be at 125, so I was completely bummed to say the least. I thought about all of the things I could have done better and things I did that were wrong, but I do know I was really good last week. Even though I went to Cheesecake Factory! I am confident that I did everything I could have last week. So, I am moving on!

No More Weighing
I will not be weighing at all during the month of February! I will be taking measurements tonight and on the last day of the month. That's what matters to me right now. I want to kiss the lovely handles good bye!

I don't always have good days emotionally. As far as eating healthy, I have small splurges every now and then and I have moments where I overdue it, but I always get right back on track....sometimes when I realize I am going overboard! Overall, I have more emotional bad days than I do "food-wise" bad days. Which is something I am proud of because I am an emotional eater!! I know plenty of people are, but admitting it has been so hard for me!! I've known it forever! I can't believe how food/alcohol had the power for so many years of my life!

This week has been a hard week, I am exhausted! I usually wake up at 5, go to the gym, come home, make my lunch, wake Love up, send him off to work, feed the dogs, let dogs go potty, play with dogs, clean what I can, get myself ready, grab my lunch, go to work, work until 5, come home, feed the dogs, clean, make dinner, run errands, read blogs(yay!), get clothes for the gym ready(so i don't have to in the mornings!), cuddle with puppies, and go to bed! May not seem like a busy day, but by the time I get into bed it is 10 or 11 o'clock.

This week, I am not doing it, I am emotionally tired. I have gone to the gym once(3 mile run), done the shred once, and did half of my speed work training run. The one thing I haven't done is turn to food! I was at the grocery store 2 times this week looking at the skinny cow ice cream. I didn't buy any! I need to stay away from the deserts and deal with my emotions!

Next week will be better and I will be my positive me :) Who knows the positive me may come back later today!

Good for you!

"Dealing with the emotions" part is hard. I really, really struggle with it, but it is getting a tiny bit easier.

Saying no to the ice cream and yes to your emotions was huge!

I don't have many answers yet, but it sounds like you're making some great progress.

I think you are making a good decision to say goodbye to the scale for a month- I'm considering doing the same thing actually.

You're days sound pretty similar to mine- good thing we are young and have lots of energy :) lol

p.s. I adore you as well!

Good job not buying the skinny cows. A couple weeks a go I bought a box from Sam's Club, thinking I would just have one a day, Ha, I couldn't stop thinking about them, so no more buying them for me either!

You are getting close to your goal, congrats on what you've done so far!

You do a lot! You definitely need to take time out for yourself!

Still congratulations on being in the 120's!!

Controlling emotional eating is a toughie for so many of us, but you have come so far already - I'm sure you can do it!

I had an 'emotionally exhausted' couple of days this week too...and was quite proud of myself that I did NOT turn to food in my coping. I did lay off of the workout for a couple days though...but kept the eating good (minus a few Twizzlers...). PS - it took me a LONG time to admit to myself that I was a (former!) emotional eater too!

Rest up...this week is a NEW WEEK!
