Jan 15, 215

I did finish off yesterday in "cheat day" mode, I suppose. I went to a restaurant for lunch and also had dessert (a nutella and banana crepe which was surprisingly not good, especially considering I was in a creperie) then walked for an hour feeling stuffed, then came home and only had 1/2 a peanut butter and raisin sandwich for the rest of the day. And a couple shots of Goldschlager.

By the end of the day I felt like my demons had been sated.

This morning I weighed 215. I also felt menstrual cramps coming on real bad, and took Midol. The cramps went away but my period still hasn't started... Anyway it could be partially due to menstrual hormones also that I went overboard on the candy. Today I'm happy to report no urges toward loss of control. It's not a battle of willpower, it's just there is not really much temptation around me, and if anything does show up I just look the other way and keep walking. But I never was hungry for the 7 hours between breakfast and lunch. I know what I'm eating for the rest of the day, but I have to plan for next week, and I have to get the groceries today. Having the plan is making all the difference.

Still looking forward to seeing 213, 212, 210 on the scale. (kicks self)

For some reason the past week or so I have had absolutely no bursting feeling of energy for exercising. My workouts have been forced activity and sluggish even once I'm doing it. Blah.

I go through these spurts where I'm really motivated and the not so motivated. You'll get back to motivated again! :)

Maybe you could try some new form of exercise to spice things up a bit. It sounds like you need a little lift.
