Weigh In Wednesday 10/23/13

I know I pretty much suck a blogging lately so for that I apologize.  But to try and stay accountable I just had to pop in quick to share my Weigh In Wednesday results.

Last week I posted an awesome loss of 2.4 pounds.  This week I gained a little.  Which is definitely to be expected considering the weekend got the best of me and I had no plan going into this week.

It's pretty safe to say that planning my meals for the week ahead plays a huge part in whether I'm successful or not.  Let's be honest, waking up every morning and having no clue what you're going to eat for lunch at work that day just leads to poor decisions.  You grab what's quick and easy which isn't always healthy for you.

I have some plans again this weekend so in order to meal plan I'm going to have to really commit to sitting down and making a plan because more than likely I will once again feel like doing absolutely nothing when I'm home.

And since I'm thinking as I type this on the fly I think I just realized something.  At this point going out isn't helpful to my healthy living lifestyle.  But to be honest I don't want to cut out the social situations just to live a healthier lifestyle.  {Like that would be healthy either...}  So what I need to work on is finding a way to do both, be social and be healthy.  As Nike says, Just Do It!  Right?  Regardless of how I feel over the weekend I just need to suck it up and make a plan because I regret it during the week when I don't.

So here are the stats...
Starting Weight {highest weight recorded}: 207.7
Last Week's Weigh In, Oct. 16: 205.3
Today's Weigh In, Oct. 23: 205.9
Gain: 0.6
Overall Loss: 1.8

How do you handle balancing going out and living a healthier life?

  1. It's not easy to balance the two!!! Trust me, this was one of the hardest things for me to learn. I would either eat too little all day, which meant getting drunk WAY too fast at night, or I'd eat too much and drink too much and go over my calorie limit.

    One thing that's helped me is strategically choosing my indulgences. Am I going to eat a big brunch with friends on Saturday morning? Welp then I need to make sure I get in a long run on Saturday morning AND eat a healthy dinner if I'm planning on going out that night. Are my friends going out to brunch and dinner and out on Saturday? Then I DEFINITELY need to run Saturday morning. And drink a lot of water throughout the day. And choose whether to indulge at brunch or dinner, but definitely not both (pro tip: swapping egg whites in your omelettes makes a HUGE difference in the calorie counts!) Get fruit as a side instead of hashbrowns, or trade our your daily Dew for water and then have that cinnamon roll. It's all about picking and choosing where to indulge, because all-out restriction will NOT work (trust me... tried it), and all-out gluttony will leave you feeling like S&*# the next day. You can do it!
