Sorry I’ve been MIA - truth been told I’ve been struggling for a variety of reasons since last Friday and haven’t been able to get my head in the game to get back on the wagon since the works Christmas party 😞 I even missed weigh in this week as I didn’t think seeing a gain would help my mindset at the mo either whereas normally it helps ‘reset’ me.
I’m now also frustrated that I won’t be where I wanted to be by Christmas having worked hard to get back under my goal weight to act as a ‘buffer’ for Christmas and I now don’t feel comfortable in my own skin. A lot of this is also down to the fact I’ve not been able to exercise recently so I can see my body shape changing 😞 Exercise helps to keep me on track mentally as well as giving my wobbly bits less wobble 😂 But tomorrows a new day and I want to try and get back in the zone before the big day - I always take Christmas off plan and this year will be no different however I do need to reign it in slightly this year if I stand a chance of fitting in anything I own for the wedding we’re attending on New Year’s Day 🙈 worst case scenario, I go up a dress size for the day 🤷♀️ not ideal but Id rather be comfy as opposed to being self conscious all day! And it won’t be forever. I know what to do and I’ll get back to my happy place again. Although this year has been one of the best years ever, it’s also presented many challenges, mentally which has been pretty tough at times 😞 no, the next week won’t make a huge difference but it’s better than scoffing my face for another week, putting on more weight and feeling more bloated. And let’s be fair - 1 week off plan hasn’t undone all my hard work from the last 3 years.
Some people think that once you reach goal, that’s it! But it’s just as hard if not harder to maintain as it is to lose the weight in the first place.
Tomorrow’s a new day and it’s time to sort my 💩 out!! I plan to take this 1 meal at a time and 1 day at a time.
