I was really on a roll last time I checked in. I was biking and cooking low carbohydrate meals at home. I even tried new recipes!! I made masked cauliflower and it was great! Even my husband liked it. Then the social activities started on Thursday afternoon and didn't stop until Sunday night. I really lost focus and did all the things that got me to this weight in the first place. Did I have fun? Yes!
That's the issue, is it worth it to skip the fun for thin? I imagine a fitness person might say you have to re-frame what fun means to you to achieve your fitness and weight loss goals. I suppose pretending you enjoy sipping water while everyone else is having wine and cheese plate. However, I felt really good about myself while I was on task and not so much when I wasn't. When I was with my friends and drinking I was having fun, but the regret was pretty brutal.
I did enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I had for a few days last week, and I see it as something worth pursuing. I went to the store to get meals for the first three days of the week. I plan to make ahead salads for tomorrow night so that I can just heat up some meatballs and pull out the ready made side. I really need to get serious and succeed so I can get off this roller coaster. It's exhausting!
