Well, after the busy weekend I gained 4 pounds. I knew that the scale would go up because I really didn't try at all to stay eating healthy this weekend, but it is frustrating none the less to see those numbers. I really went off the reservation this weekend in a number of ways and I feel it today.
I feel miserable today, so miserable that I am contemplating just staying home in bed. Thanks to all the food I have been eating and the 7 hours of driving yesterday thanks to holiday traffic, my body is telling me I really abused it and is making my pay for that abuse. It is really hard to get back on track after a weekend like this. I have had these weekends before when I tried to get in shape and several of them were the catalyst of my failure in those attempts. I would go off the reservation and, feeling miserable, just neglect and ignore all the positive changes I have made along the way. That is not going to happen this time.
I'm taking the advice my dad always gives me. When you make a wrong turn along your route, don't just keep blindly going down the wrong road, backtrack a little and get back on the right road.
