Pullin' it together...

There are times in life where you have to acknowledge you messed up, then just move on. Saturday was not-so-good for me. I stayed within my calories, but did not eat on plan. Actually, Saturday was just thrown off quite a bit and I just had to roll with it. But never, not once, did I just throw in the towel. I just made up my mind that today, I had to pull it together, and I did.

Today was my first successful weekend day that I have been 100% on plan! I just woke up with the resolve to do it, and I did! Today I not only ate on plan, but I also did over an hour in the gym. I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike, and 30 minutes on the elliptical. I even walked/ran on the treadmill for 6 minutes until the elliptical was free. I didn't do weights today because it was just PACKED in there! All the machines had a wait list.

I've had 1500 calories today and 120 oz of water. Livestrong.com estimates I burned about 1000 calories, but we all know that may or may not be accurate. Hopefully the scale will be nice to me in the morning...

Good for you for taking control back. Sometimes, it's just a matter of getting our heads back in the game. Which we all know, is easier said than done.

Its a great feeling when you get one of those days under your belt, where you know that you dotted the i's and crossed the t's. Well done you!

You know, I had the same thing this weekend. I didn't stay on my usual plan but I stayed within my calories. Got on the scale this morning and have lost though, so that says something :-D

I am very motivated by your comment of not throwing in the towel. Far too often, we do do that once we slightly mess up. Good for you!

It's so motivating reading about someone else who's also trying to lose weight. keep at it! I may also try that livestrong website...I dont count my calories...i just try and stick to a low GI diet. be well!
