Mamavation Monday

This is a big week for me…. Tonight I have my first “official” meeting with the Mamavation Sistas who will be participating in Pete Cohen’s 28 Day Challenge and on Tuesday I’ll be finishing the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge. I also feel like giving up. I seriously feel like throwing up my hands and just scarfing down everything in sight.

Isn’t that funny? I’ve made it this far and I’ve lost about 10 lbs since I started this program at the beginning of the month, yet I feel like quitting. I’ve had two really bad days eating wise:
Saturday ~ I had a Wendy’s grilled chicken sandwich, medium fry and medium Cherry Coke for dinner. I’ve gone all month without any fast food, but last night I was so hungry and I really needed to eat. Yes, I could have gone to the grocery store and bought some “real” food but it was just easier to throw on my slippers and go to the drive~thru.
Sunday ~ I ate a peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread, bowl of Cheerios, apple, macaroni and cheese, ribs, half a pork chop and a bowl of Raisin Bran. I’m almost certain I ate more than that but for the life of me I can’t remember what. How insane is that?
I feel like I’m purposely sabotaging all of my success and I’m not certain why I’d do that.
I’m also feeling a little bit frustrated that I’m not seeing any changes in my body. I mean, I can see the numbers on the scale going down but my jeans are still snug and my belly is still sitting in my lap. I want to see some changes.
Don’t worry though, I’m not gonna give up. I’m going to make some more adjustments and see how things go from there.
To avoid days like Saturday and Sunday I’ve decided to make a menu plan for the week and do the grocery shopping around the meal plans. My hope is that I’ll have dinner made every night and I’ll avoid the munchies and the drive~thru window.
