Weigh-in 11/29

Previous Weight: 151.4
Current Weight: 151.8
Change: +.4

Grrrrr.  I'm really not liking the scale right now :/  I know in my head that I need to let go of what the scale says, but it's a really difficult thing for me. 
I should be grateful that I've basically maintained. Things have been a bit "off" since Thanksgiving.  I overdid it on the dessert table (shocking right??) and have been struggling with carbs since.  I thought maybe if I upped my carb intake I wouldn't crave them so bad... you know, like if I allow myself a little leeway it would be better?? Buzzzzz, wrong answer.  Leeway (in terms of carbs) is a slippery slope for me.  Throw in a few bad nights with sleeping & dreary weather and I feel like a mess! Cravings and bad choices galore.  I'm not talking massive amounts of anything (as in binging) but picking at little bits of this and that adds up too. Wine and a half a bagel is not dinner either (that was last night).
I did some thinking today.  I need to be better prepared in terms of dinner. That's been a hot mess this week. I need to make sure I have good stuff in the house... I must go to the grocery store TODAY. 
I also need to commit to an exercise plan for the next 4 weeks.  I finished up my 6 week weight training plan last week and felt a bit at loose ends in that department. I don't want to start the second 6 week program when I know I'll be going out of town at the 4 week point. Did I mention we're going to Disneyland for Christmas??
After some thought, a little Jillian seems to be the answer to that dilemma.  Ripped in 30 is 4 weeks long. I have 4 weeks before Disneyland. Plus, there's no excuses even if the weather's bad.  I've done week 1 of the DVD 2x this week.  Tomorrow and Saturday will make it 4 days.  I'll also be squeezing in some runs along the way.
It definitely feels better to have a plan.  And as always it helps to write it down here :)
No more wine, no more bagels, no more crap or excuses.

You and I are a lot alike. I can't give myself any slack because I fall off track. It's kind of all or nothing for me. I am not even stepping foot on the scale this week. I would be setting myself up for disaster. Sounds like you did much better than I did on Thanksgiving!

The weather is always a factor that sneaks up on me when it comes to eating. I always say, jeez, why am I so hungry? I soon realize that I am not hungry in the least bit but needing comfort for the dreariness and wetness outside. I have found that drinking plain tea really helps with this.

Drinking tea really helps me too. I get this every year when the weather gets nasty. Feeling better after one full day back on track and a few workouts under my belt. Never underestimate the power of seratonin :)

You are not along my friend! And I know you, you will never give up, it's not in you :)

You will power on and you will make your goals. Yes you will.

Happy Saturday Tiffany!
