Week 15: Oh, wait, I shouldn't eat 2 tons of candy and a whole pizza!?

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Diet plan:
Sit on my butt, eat whatever I want, and don't track anything on sparkpeople
0 amounts of exercise
Success, meh, or failure:
Weight gain, loss, or neither:
Willpower/commitment level

So... I went to another conference this week and I thought I would be able to make pretty healthy choices and go for lots of walks...well... that didn't happen. Instead I ate tons of candy and basically never got out of my chair. A friend of mine sitting behind me at the conference literally had 8 water bottles filled with candy and he would pass them out whenever the conference got boring, calling them "happy pills".

When I got home I decided that instead of thinking of this as "falling off the wagon" I would instead think of it as an exercise in what happens when I follow this "diet". Well, no big surprise, I gained 3.5lbs.

I felt awful all week like I was going back to my old ways and I often noticed that I can eat foods I want when following a diet, I just can't eat until I feel like I want barf. (and really lets be honest, no one should do that!)

This week I am going back to an oldie but a goodie! I am going to do one of my previous plans that I know will take off a big chunk of this weight and will get me back into the mode of only eating at meal times. I am looking forward to it!!

Plan for Week 16:
Pre-packaged meals
5 servings of fruits and veggies
300 min of exercise

    Thanks! Yeah my sodium levels are often too high, which is something I have been working on. I will definitely pay close attention! Thanks for the encouragement! I hope you have a great weight loss week too!

    it sounds like a great plan to get back on track! pre-packaged food can help so much just be wary of the sodium levels. and don't beat yourself up about all the candy and the gain. it sounds like you learned something from the experience and that more than anything will help you make better choices in the future. good luck in week 17!
