    I got off the rails last week...I just lost my motivation, got focused on other stuff, and before I knew it, I wasn't pre-tracking, then I wasn't posting my daily updates, then I wasn't really tracking. Part of it was that I just didn't do my meal and snack prep last weekend and I know myself better than to think I just wing it or "go to the store and grab something real quick on the way to work." Also, I'm out of touch with what is impulsive eating.

    It's so easy for me to convince myself that I'm being mindful about whatever I'm deciding to eat totally fits in my calorie budget or is maybe a little bit of a splurge but totally worth it. I wish I could come up with some kind of flow chart about "should I eat this" but ultimately no that won't get at the root cause of the problem. What I can do is this (1) keep posting/journaling about what I recognize after the fact as compulsive eating so I can try to recognize the difference in the future or at least stay accountable (2) keep preparing and preparing (3) keep tracking and ideally pre-tracking (4) remember how deep the roots of this eating behavior go and know that unlearning it and rebuilding my relationship with food has a long way to go.

    Here's my weigh in if it can still be used :neutral:

    Todays Weight: 111.3

    I had a horrible week, and was sure I was going to gain. I am ecstatic that I lost half a #! I got some pretty horrible news on Thursday and have been about 100-300 calories over everyday since then and have eaten take out two nights in a row, had ice cream twice and have been eating chocolate. I've definitely been eating my feelings, so this is a major victory!

    Hang in there, @CrystalEssex ! Sorry to hear about your horrible news. Emotional eating can get the best of us but it looks like you are moderating it somewhat considering your loss this week! But we are all here for you, I hope this week is a better week.

    Track: yes
    Calories: over
    Exercise: YES! Completed a C25K session today and did some body weight exercises! Time to get back into a fitness routine.
    Day: A good day off with BF, hit the gym in the morning then went to a market to get some lunch, then ended the day with wine by our new fire pit!! Was a nice day worth some of the indulgences and counterbalanced by finely getting in some purposeful exercise!

    Week: 11/10
    PW: 250.2
    CW: 244.5

    Things I did well:40-75 min of cardio x 7, Mobility Everyday, lifted 5 of 7 days
    Long term goal: It is 7 weeks until January 1, 2020. I have done 48 of my 50 workout goal. I do cardio, weights and mobility regularly. I gained 2.6 pounds last week. I did nothing to justify a 2.6 pound weight gain last week and I did nothing to justify a 4.7 pound weight loss this week. After the holidays are over I think only weighing in once a month will be better for me. I took a waist measurement and I’m down 2 inches so all in all I’m thrilled with the progress this week.

    Track: Yes
    Calories: Under
    Exercise: Rest day....definitely overdid it Monday because my legs are SORE
    Day: Solid day back to work, I didn't pack enough lunch so was starving throughout the afternoon, but luckily I resisted snacking when I got home and just started dinner earlier than usual to accommodate my hunger. Made fried rice with chicken and really bulked up the rice with TONS of veggies so that I could eat a little more without as many calories. Even had some calories leftover for a little fruit and low calorie cool whip!
