Dont want to work out today - just need someone to kick my butt today i guess LOL! Lost 2 lbs last week and i feel like the weekend i just put it all on and then some so frustrated !!

  • Skbt, Keep your focus on today and do the things you have to do today to be a success. Don't look back and beat yourself up over what you ate and drank. Keep the momentum moving forward!

  • Skbt,

    The weekend is over and there is nothing you can do about it, it's in the PAST!!!  However today is a fresh day and you can do something about the PRESENT.  So make sure you get your workout in and stick to your 6 high quality meals of lean proteins and healthy carbs.  

    Just remember that its the "sum of the parts that will determine your success NOT a few bad days"!!!!!  That's why it's important to just pick right back up and keep moving forward!!!!  

  • Screw it, as long as it is only one day, there is only so much damage you can do, and it takes a while for you to WANT to not eat and drink.

    There IS no low fat/sugar drink, as alcohol is all sugar pretty much, but as long as you restrict it to one day...meh, it is a release, and I know for me it keeps me motivated the rest of the week.

  • It is behind you; learn from it and move on.  Drinking is not worth the extra calories & sugar to me.  My friends and family know that.  I don't mind drinking iced water and lemon, and being designated driver.  I don't get hungry when I drink water like I do when I drink alcohol, so it's a double blessing there.  No extra calories from the liquor or the food I eat after drinking.  It all depends on how much you want it.  I want a healthy, nice body more than I want alcohol.  Sugar/chocolate is my true addiction, and something I have to work on daily!!  Hang in there!  This is a tough time of year for everyone.  It is what we do MOST of the time that matters!!
