I had a relatively good weekend overall. I can't believe it's Monday morning, and I can actually say that.
I won't get into all of the insane details, but let's just say that I managed to resist MANY temptations! Including a massive spread of amazing food at a religious ceremony that we had for my daughter on Saturday. I resisted samosas, sweets, and other treats. I also resisted vegan chocolate cake on Friday night (except for one little bite). I even turned down nachos on Saturday night, in favour of a fruit smoothie and some popcorn. You know what? I still enjoyed my weekend. I enjoyed some small things in moderation, and didn't feel deprived.
I wanted to go to the gym on Saturday and Sunday, but only made it one day. I feel really down about the fact that I never made it on Sunday - almost like I "cheated". It's amazing how when I start setting high standards for myself, I forget about all the good that I'm doing - and just feel like I'm not meeting my goals. Again, it's the perfection factor - I need to keep working on that! I had a great weekend of eating, and that's what matters.
I'm really ready for this week - I want to see another loss on Saturday, when I weigh in. If I can see a consecutive loss, I'll finally feel like I'm in the groove. Five days of hard work ahead of me - I'm ready to give it my all!
Carolyn - you did an amazing job this past weekend - you're going to show that scale who's boss this week again, I know it!
