Teancum Just Does It

On the plus side, I was tempted to just write it off as a loss and have a bowl of ice cream too, but I remembered that this challenge is about results, not just marking down what I did or didn't do, so I talked myself down, which was really good.

Nice!  Sounds like a real win :)

So today didn't go great. And it wasn't just the birthday dinner. I got snacky when I got home from work and ate a whole chocolate bar and some chips. I don't know what the deal was. I think my brain counted the day as a write off for some reason. Ugh. Back at it tomorrow though.

I keep feeling so snacky the last couple days. I had more sugar today, but I stayed within my calories more or less. I forgot to weigh myself, so I'll check tomorrow.

Sometimes it happens,  As long as it stays just one day and doesn't start to turn into a habit you should be OK

I was still snacky today, but calories turned out ok. The strong desire to eat (it's not even hunger, it's weird) is annoying, but that's life I guess. On the plus side, I weighed today and only gained 0.6 lbs, managing to stay under 280, so that was a pleasant surprise.

Teancum just doesn't do it. 

 

I'm officially taking week two off. Getting messed up by working a day and a night and a day in a row, also having birthday things, and traveling the rest of the week, I am setting myself up for failure, which in my current mindset would set me back more than a one week break I think. So this week is a write off, but I'll be back and ready to go in week three!!

That sounds like a horrible work schedule. Good luck, happy birthday, and see you next week.

 

Yes, luckily it doesn't happen often.

Sorry to hear this week isn't going well, but don't worry, you can pick things back up next week and run from there :)

Good to be back! I felt pretty awful when I was overeating so much. I don't know why I can never seem to remember that feeling the next time. Free food is always my weakness. Anyways, back now, and ready to go!

Ugh. Things aren't going so well. It was around this time last year that things went south bad and I gained all my weight back. I haven't really lost much since then anyways, but I definitely don't want things to go that direction again.

Finally catching up on your thread.  Glad to see you are hanging in there, even when it gets rough :) 

 

Barely, but hanging nonetheless

Terrible cold today, but had to go to work anyway. And of course I get it the day before I have to drive my sister to the airport early in the morning. Hopefully it's a good night tonight.

Any thoughts on what caused you to derail both years around this time? Weather/ work/ family/ holidays/ health? Could help you combat it, if you know the warning signs of oncoming blahs.

I think a mix of holidays and weather. My birthday is shortly followed by Thanksgiving (Canadian), and then Halloween starts happening. So there ends up being lots of food and candy and baking around. Add to that the coldness and darkness starting up, and I seem to start going into "fatten up for hibernation" mode. I'm still not quite sure how to fight it though. I think I really need to get my wife on board somehow, but that's proved difficult.

The cold continues, but my appetite has been lower too, so that's good I guess? Didn't
