ChaLean Extreme - Week 9 - Sunday

After I blogged last night, I ended up eating again. Sebastian left carrots for the Easter Bunny and someone had to get rid of them. I wish he'd left donuts.

Or not. I weighed in today at 137, up one pound from last week. I'm disappointed but not surprised. There are tons of reasons why I gained that pound (which isn't fat, I'm positive) - I've been sick, hormones, too many processed foods. Whatever. Looking back at my diet for the last week, it hasn't been horrible. Sunday was excessive but still not terrible. I didn't work out as hard as I could have. It's frustrating nonetheless.

I'm not measuring or tracking today. I am worried I'll end up grazing all day. Between the disappointing weigh in, cooking foods I normally wouldn't, and just hanging out all day, I'm really edgy about what I eat. The Easter candy is making me insane, and that's crazy because I've had M&Ms and Girl Scout Cookies & all sorts of goodies in this house for months without a problem. But as soon as I saw my son's Easter basket, my mind went crazy!!! Just like with the Valentine's Day candy! Why is that???

At one point, I got so restless, I took a walk. I needed to do something or go crazy. I walked 4 miles in 1:02:36 - no speed record, for sure, but it was good to get out.

  • a few small homemade cookies that my friend made last weekend and sent home with us
  • eggs, ham & crescent rolls
  • coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda (and Baileys - at 9 in the freaking morning!!!)
  • Wheat Things Fiber Select w/ homemade crab dip
  • mandarin oranges
  • hard boiled eggs, carrots
  • peanut butter & Nutella sandwich
  • shrimp, tilapia, vegetable risotto, mashed potatoes, stuffing, biscuit & gravy
  • egg salad sandwich
  • a few M&Ms (not the ones from my freezer - the ones in my son's basket)
It sure looks like a ton of food. It feels like a ton of food.  I overate today. I'm not sure if I'm mad at myself or not. I know days like this are going to happen. I'll live. I'm not tempted to binge. Well, I am, but I won't! I've worked too hard to let that happen.

You are such an inspiration Becky and I'm not even saying that to be patronizing or anything. The fact that you did not let this turn into a binge is such an accomplishment. I need to think of you more give me hope.

You did great, girl! Unfortunately, there are going to be holidays and I think as long as we don't let it turn into a several day long binge, that it's okay to indulge a little on those days.

If it makes you feel better, the effing Easter candy is driving me crazy too! I didn't really put much in my basket and didn't eat much at all yesterday but I keeping sneaking by Collin's today and snagging a few pieces here and a few pieces there. Argh!

I worked out today though so there's my positive thing for the day! :)
