Maybe it's just the week I'm having -- I have a work deadline looming pretty closely -- but I just don't feel like I can do it anymore! After an arm injury that's reduced my exercise, I plateaud. I wanted to take everyone's recommendations from Calorie Counters to break through it. I stayed on plan all week, and promised myself no treat meals until I could work out full steam again.
Well, Friday night, my boyfriend took me out to dinner. It was definitely a treat, but really not so heavy and I didn't feel guilty at all, just satisfied. But then the weekend just kinda got away from me. I didn't count at all, which is fine sometimes, but I was pretty derailed. The really troublesome thing is that I felt the THRILL of REBELLION. I was like, I'm not counting and this feels GREAT!
Just so it's clear, when I am on plan I'm not overly restrictive (1620), I eat a well-balanced diet of whole and organic foods and a nice mix of high volume lo-cal foods and small portioned rich foods, and I drink lots of water too. So that's not the problem.
I don't know what this means for my food plan. I feel like I can pick it up again for the week, but then what? As long as I feel like I'm fighting myself, I don't think this can work.
Any wise words for me? TIA.
