Ups, downs, and getting stuck

RAWR! F*ck this week. Seriously. 

I don't know why, but this whole week I've been worthless. I went to the gym Monday morning and got my run on, and since then? Nothing. Nada. Actually, I lie. I've been eating. A LOT. I can't seem to stop! I got rid of the tons of left over Halloween candy I had because it was just dangerous to have around (especially all of the chocolate), but I swear I've done nothing but gain weight all week and I can seem to get motivated to do anything about it.

I actually cried Tuesday morning (I'm calling it a mix of PMS, just waking up and being pissed) after I weighed myself. I was SO sure I could get under 200 lbs by Halloween. It didn't happen. Tuesday morning I was 202.4. WTF. I did SO well up until Tuesday morning. I've switched to green tea instead of coffee, I steered clear of 'bad for me' foods last weekend and I didn't even drink at my best friend's wedding b/c I wanted to hit that 199 mark. F*CK ME. Seriously. I was so upset. Obviously I'm still not thrilled.

I need someone to yell at me when I put bad things in my mouth. I need to gain more self control. I need someone to MAKE me go work out when I don't want to. Brian pokes me every morning at 5:30 when my alarm goes off and I've just been waving him off saying I'll work out in the afternoon. I haven't. I've been a lazy bum - but I attribute it to my attitude. I'm so bummed right now about not reaching my weight goal.

But, I do think I'm physically looking better. Check out my November 1 pics here.

I'm just really unhappy with my weight progress. I can only blame myself and my eating, why can't I get it under control? It's just food! I only need it to live, I DON'T need it to have fun. I DON'T need it when I'm bored. I only need food when I'm HUNGRY - and when I'm hungry, I need to eat good food, not junk. Why is it so hard?!

I'm actually running a 5K on Saturday - my first race ever. I hope it renews my motivation to be a runner. I want to be a runner. I want to feel comfortable when I run. I want endurance. I don't want to breathe heavy at the gym after a one minute jog. I want to be healthy and have a healthy hobby. I want running to be that healthy hobby. I hope this race goes well...

  1. You are looking awesome girly!
    Sorry about the bad week. You said combo of PMS, so maybe the weight was still there because of that. And really your like 198. :)

    Good luck in the 5k. Do you have a time goal or a "I just want to finish" goal?

    Do awesome! Good luck!
