Fallout

1 lb on. I'm not happy, not happy at all. Mostly, I'm frustrated that it's up this morning, after Friday's excesses, when it had got to a new all time low on Friday morning. I'm frustrated that I can't keep a lid on my socialising, unless I'm actively planning - just winging it doesn't seem to work for me.

You know what I hate the most though? I hate having to come on here and 'fess up that I've screwed up again. Hate it, and I'm always so sorely tempted to just not post my weigh in, or at least weight until I've got past it. Just gloss over it, and pretend it didn't happen. I love reporting the victories, but I got to tell you reporting the fuck ups is just depressing.

I have got to get a good week in this week. The next couple of weeks are relatively quiet, or at least, as quiet as my weeks ever get, which means there'll be dinner with friends and visits to the pub, etc. However, there's nothing outrageously difficult to negotiate past and I'm expecting to do my regular exercise sessions, so there's no excuse to not get some good losses in.

I need to kick my ass back into doing what it should be doing, as the only redeeming point about this weekend, was that I didn't allow Friday's indiscretion to continue over into Saturday and Sunday, and worked to balance those days with the activity points I earned.

I've got a few tight muscles this morning, as they're definitely kranking up the effort in Sunday circuits, but I'll be spinning as usual this evening. Really hoping that I'll feel up to getting back to Body Combat on Thursday this week, but I'll see how that goes, as I'd like to get some running in too.

it's really impressive that you're so honest. i'm not brave enough to document my 'failings'. if my blog goes quiet that usually means, training plan not stuck to and a day of eating rubbish! kick ass this week :)

Ah don't beat yourself up - life sometimes just gets in the way. I had an equally bad (possibly worse) weekend and am not ovely hopeful Wednesday will give me a loss.

But you know what - at least we are both aware we've been bad and have done our best to get straight back on track. That's progress surely! I get you with having to admit to being bad though, I hate having to confess!!

And to be honest, as much as I want to be slim, I don't want to give up my drunken nights out with my friends - although I'd maybe forgoe the hangovers!

I'm amazed you do as well as you do with so much time spent in a pub. I'm not sure I could stay even relatively good in that environment.

I'm with ya, too. I absolutely hate coming on here and posting a gain. It's the worst...

To be honest with the weekend you had, I think 1 lb on is actually pretty good. I mean its far from ideal but I think if i'd been in a similar situation i'd be looking at 3 or 4lbs on the heavier side easily. It takes guts to say when things arn't going right and it makes when things do go right, all the more sweeter.

Two things: First this quote from your post: "at least weight until I've got past it"...talk about a Freudian slip (weight instead of wait)...shows what's utmost on your mind.
Second, (and I know you know this) muscle weighs more than fat. Don't forget to measure! You may be losing and not even know it, esp. if you're working out! Just a thought...

Aww, at least you know why and at least you are posting and keeping it real.

Of course you will knock that pound off and it will take a couple of friends with it - you can do it, I know you can!

(and (((hugs))) cos I know you feel down about it)

Makes perfect sense to me - probably because I often behave similarly. Hope it works for you. Z xx
