There's good news and bad news. First the bad, I gained. The good, Nick came through for me and I did get spanked. I could have done better; and I know it. I ate out 4 times last week. (Can I blame Florida Dom?) But there is also better news – I feel very confident about this coming week. Nick said same rules are in place, can’t eat in the chair and for this week I have to make it to the gym at least three times. Shouldn’t be a problem, I’ve already been twice.
I know me pretty well. Nothing motivates me like success. If I can lose some this week it will be a big incentive for next week (alone with the motivation Nick and the OCW paddle provided). I also know some problems to look for – just don’t know how to avoid them. When I have a bad week my ‘self-talk’ is just terrible! If I heard anyone talking to someone I cared about the way I sometimes talk to myself I’d rip ‘em a new one! I need to stop!!
I haven’t done any of the other things I thought about – joined WW, or made some appointments with a personally trainer, I even get 4 free sessions a year. I think I’ve put off WW because I don’t want to fail. I mean if I don’t start, I can’t fail at it. Stupid I know but its still how I feel.
However, for the moment I’m feeling pretty good. I’m watching what I eat and exercising – and thinking about other options. Hopefully, Nick will stay tough and not allow any backsliding!
