    Day: Today was just one of those days where I set out with the best intentions and life happened. Wanted to go to the gym, but the evening was so busy that I didn't fit it in. Had an extra coffee in the afternoon, a latte, so had too many calories before even eating dinner. Made cookie dough ahead of needing to bake for work this week, ate dough as I went. Just got away from me. Little things here and there add up! Going to get back on track today!

    Hey team
    I'm sorry I've been MIA for awhile but I have been lurking and enjoying your posts.
    I took a break from logging as it was getting a bit stressful and I was hoping to take a break and maintain for awhile as I was going through some personal stuff and didn't have the headspace to log/be mindful.
    It worked for a while and I was glad I learnt a little bit about maintenance.
    But now my poor eating habits from before have resurfaced with a vengeance and I'm finding myself binging on junk almost daily. And not surprisingly, the weight is creeping back up.
    The thought of regaining the 40 lbs I've worked so hard on losing, is absolutely terrifying to me. But the dread does not seem to be enough to get me back in the game.
    Life is going to be stressful for awhile so I can no longer use the 'when this passes' excuse. I have to somehow learn to eat well even when under stress.
    So to make a long story short, I'm REALLY REALLY struggling.
    Sorry for ranting, thanks for listening.

    Sorry you’re struggling! This was me a couple years ago and sadly I gained the 40+ I’d lost and an extra 20 :( all I can say is do whatever you need to to get back on track. Jump into this competition! The team needs you, we were first in week 1 but 2nd in week 2. Help us get back into 1st!

    I don’t have any real words of wisdom, I find it hard to get back on track after I fall off. I would just say to keep trying. I always struggle and then quit. Don’t quit. Keep at it and good luck!

    We had Thai tonight and I intended to eat half of my pad Thai but ate it all. That’s okay. One day won’t ruin my progress.

    Things I did well:40-75 min of cardio x 7, Mobility Everyday, lifted 5 of 7 days
    Long term goal: It is 6 weeks until January 1, 2020. I have surpassed my 50 workout goal. I do cardio, weights and mobility regularly. I gained .5 pounds in spite of being in at least a 1000 calorie deficit everyday. I looked back to a month ago and I have lost 5.6 pounds since then. So over the long hall my weight is going in the right direction. My clothes are baggier. So I took another waist measurement and I’m down 1inch so all in all I’m thrilled with the progress this week.

    Checking back in here is huge step in the right direction!! You got this! I completely understand the struggle. I feel like for the past 4 months of this journey, my motivation is working for me every other month. I struggle so much with consistency, so I know where you are coming from. I actually had a moment whining to my bf last night as I was sampling cookie dough about how much of a struggle making the right choices this week were and how I'm terrified that one bad day will derail the whole train. And yet, sometimes I STILL dont make the healthy decision. We are humans. Most of us have years and years of reinforced patterns of unhealthy habits that got us here, so we need to remember that it will take time to undo it. Rome wasn't built in a day. This is a good reminder to all of us, that your team is here for you and to support you no matter what! We all don't have to be losing and having good days to check in here and chat through the struggles together. I needed to remember that too. Since I rejoined the challenge and became captain, I've really been struggling with getting the scale down and maintaining my healthy habits, and I have felt a bit ashamed that I am struggling and have the urge to just stop posting, stop checking, etc. But I need to remember and is good for all of us to remember that hiding in the dark is not the answer. We can use our resources and come together to help anyone out who is struggling.

    Ok....I'll stop with my peptalk lol that kind of turned into stream of consciousness blabbing about my mindset this month. But the whole point is we see you and we all are here for you and know what youre going through right now. Hang in there!
