Day 64: Having a hard time

Sunday, November 03, 2019

This week was bad. It was rough. My car broke, my computer broke, I had a fight with a close friend. I was sad, I was depressed, and I admit that I fell off tracking my food for a few days. I kept exercising though. I thought I was doing ok. Then I weighed in on Saturday. I gained back a pound and a half.

I was defeated. It took me a month and a half to even hit the 5 pounds down mark, and here it was the very next week, completely wiped out. I spiraled yesterday. Fast food and lots of it. Yesterday was the worst day I had in the last 64 days.

I don't know what it was that hit me last night and made me put down the late night Taco Bell and decide to plan my meals for the upcoming week and schedule my work outs. But, I did. Then I woke up this morning and did a 30 minute walk run to my best pace since 2013.

I truly believe that being on this site and spending the time reading the lessons and taking the information to heart helped me keep the spiral to less than 24 hours and get myself back on track.

Also knowing that I have the support of teams and others going through the same situations and have advice and knowledge all their own is comforting. Even being able to write this to others than will judge me less than I judge myself and will be understanding is so soothing to me.

I never know how to end these blogs. I hope everyone is well!
