257.6 – Up 4 pounds

Wow. I fell off the wagon- hard- this weekend. I am bitterly disappointed in myself, however, I will not allow this to derail my efforts like it would have in the past. I had been fighting chocolate cravings since Friday, gave in and had chocolate pretzels Saturday morning, and then all hell broke loose after that. Basically had a full-on cheat day: bread with Mother’s Day lunch, a full-sugar daquiri, hell, hubs and I went and got frappuccinos for dessert. Saturday was a complete disaster, so much so that I didn’t even log in to journal on Sunday.

But that’s a problem.

Not logging in to journal is a slippery slope. Then it becomes “I’ll journal again once I get to my old low weight, it’s only four pounds, that’ll come off in no time at my size” and the next thing you know I’m buying a larger size pair of pants again.

No way, man. No freakin’ way. It’s not happening.

Sunday wasn’t as terrible, but I still had a liberal low carb day, and I had my all-time trigger food, milk, Sunday morning with breakfast. (Yes, seriously, milk is my biggest trigger food.) I had cravings all day. I had a diet soda, I had a couple of 9g coffee pods, and this morning I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. I feel sick, and almost hung-over.

Today the plan is to stay so on-plan that I am proud of myself by the end of the day. Back on it, Jess. Success is one successful day at a time. Knowing my body, I will go through the keto flu all over again, and that’s OK. It’s going to suck, but I gotta do what I gotta do. There is no way I’m going back to living my old way of eating. I can’t, and I won’t.

B: A large omelette with bacon, sausage, and mushrooms
L: Grilled chicken with mayo and mustard, a spinach salad with olive oil
D: Brats and asparagus

I am disappointed in myself, BUT, I have nothing to do but acknowledge it and move on.

Wishing you all, and myself, an awesome on-plan day.
