To keep it simple, I fell off it this week. The workouts were there, don't worry about that, but the food was a bit off. I was on training for work all week and didn't have the options I would normally have when it came to lunch and snacks. I wasn't about to pay 10 dollars for a salad when a slice of pizza was only 2.99. So there were a few bad moments to say the least. However, at dinner I made the right choices. It wasn't all a waste. And on the workout front, I went up another 5 pounds on my weights. I am spending too much money on this...lol. But I can see the diff in my upper body for sure. I still can't believe how hard this program is. 200 push ups in one session...really? I'm still pressing play. 6 weeks to go.
But alas, the pizza wasn't the worst of it. After 7 weeks of being very careful with my sugars, I not only fell off the wagon I willingly jumped from the damn thing. I don't know what it was but I could NOT get sugary treats out of my mind all day yesterday. Maybe it was because I have been depriving myself for so long and it just built up. Who knows? All I do know is that I could not stop thinking about it. It was like an old addiction coming for a visit. So I caved. I had syrup with pancakes and a chocolate bar. Not together of course. Hours apart. Strangely however, I noticed a very interesting thing afterwards...although they were very yummy, they didn't give me the same feeling they used to in the past. Hmmm. I didn't expect that at all. I was kinda left feeling, blah and unsatisfied. Not sure what that is all about but needless to say I am back on the wagon. I don't think it will be as hard to stay on track now as I have allowed myself to cheat and found it to be kinda useless.
Back on the courts tonight for the first time in well over a month. Since my physio issues. I am kinda nervous but really looking forward to getting back to my passion. It is seriously the "thing" I think about when I wake up and the last thing before bed. I am lucky to have been able to play this sport for so long. I only hope I have many more years left. I hope you all experience this feeling about something in your life. You just can't beat it.
