So I have been really struggling the past few weeks, in fact I've not really done anything to contribute to losing any weight. So here I am 3lbs heavier than I was four weeks ago, my target completely out of the window. So instead of this being a 'poor me, I'm so rubbish' post I'm going to explore what I've found out over the past four weeks.
1. I feel rubbish, I didn't think healthy eating was making me feel that much better, well, I knew it was a bit but didn't realise just how much difference it makes!
2. I cannot say no to food and still make bad choices when they are available.
3. I can't keep blaming everyday life events for my failures
So number one is obvious to everyone, that is, everyone but me. I am ready to start feeling better and knowing I'm making a differnce to my body.
Number twoI think I knew I would fail on this. I went to a conference at work and the breakfast was buffet style so I could have chosen wisely and had cereal and fruit or even pushed the boat out and had a continental style breakfast using my Healthy Exta A and Healthy Extra B. But no I choose to have sausage, egg, beans and black pudding with two slices of white bread all three mornings.
Number three is I have to realise the things I blame for me falling off the waggon are normal, a death of a grandparent is something most of us experience and the death of someone close is something everyone experiences at some point or another. Another thing that made me go off track was having my period I used this as an excuse to overindulge to make me feel less crappy, again this is something all women have to do. I went away with work, again another thing a lot of people do without going crazy over the buffet.
When away with work the keynote speech was by a guy who was so inspirational and used the word S.U.M.O which stands for shut up and move on which is exactly what I need to do. I need to shut up with my excuses and move on to become fab. If you get chance check out the website for the guy we had the keynote speech from as it has some of his videos on there and even though you don't get the full message like you would seeing the whole thing it will make you laugh and think http://www.thesumoguy.com/
