Back on the horse or bike…

Or whatever that saying is.

I’ve started my weight loss journey… again. I tend to get back up to approximately the same weight and decide it is time to start losing again. If only I wasn’t so predictably lazy. I am really trying this time, up until 3 days ago I hadn’t eaten a piece of chocolate in a month. A MONTH! And then I did… and it was kind of disappointing. I ruined my record and in the end wished I hadn’t. On the plus side, I think my cravings are gone.

That being said, I’m pretty sure I overloaded on calories last night. Damn work and their bar tabs! And possibly something to do with the irresistable taste of Vodka and Raspberry. Why does it have to taste so non-alcoholic, why?!?

Up until yesterday, I had lost 2.1KG (4.6lbs) in 2 weeks. Lets hope I didn’t break it yesterday.

I have increased my exercise to 3 workout days. One of which is Saturday, which then includes 3 workouts of its own. I’ve also cut out a lot of my diet which makes me a bit sad. Anyone gone through this? I’d love your input on what I should eat. I’ve been getting a bit depressed about the lack of awesomeness in my diet these days. I feel trapped by lettuce most days. Help!

  1. I’ve gone through this myself. The only thing I really don’t like is the list of foods I can eat constantly decreasing.

    Easiest thing you can do is to replace all carbs with whole wheat/whole grain carbs. You’ll probably have to learn how to cook new kinds of food because as it stands, current cuisines aren’t that healthy.

  2. Do you have an iPhone/iPod Touch/iAnything? The LoseIt app has been a lifesaver to me when it comes to keeping track of what I eat and how many calories I’ve consumed, plus it allows you to add exercise workouts and such. Definitely helpful! Good luck on your journey! (And I completely admire your restraint on the chocolate. I’m going on a week without it and I’m ready to cave, ahh!)

  3. My main observation is: don’t beat yourself up over food – the more focussed on eating you get the less easy it is to keep at it… Suddenly changing what you eat is hard… Cutting back on things gradually is gentler, more habit forming and less stressful. Though it can mean slower results, I’ve seen it work better for friends than straight ‘dieting’. In fact I think the people I know most sucessful at keeping weight off have just cut the snacks, replaced the fast-food and increased the walking and other exercise. But everyone is different.

    Hope you get where you want to go. 🙂

  4. OMG! This sounds like me! I haven’t worked out in two weeks! But hopefully, that is if i pack my runners with me to work tomorrow, i get back on the wagon. I was doing so good too! Luckily, i’ve only gained two pounds back (water weight, right? lol) But yeah, i’m glad i’m not the only one.
