So here I am at the end of Week 6 with Nutrisystem on the Women’s Select Success Plan. This was a rough week. Professional life wise, I was swamped at my day job. Very busy and hard to find a moment to breathe. That same week, my son decided to go through a phase where he wanted to be a clinging monkey and had to be holding onto me every second of the day while I was home. Did I mention my lap top had a virus? What was suppose to be a 24 hour turn around turned into nearly a week because employees simply forgot to work on my computer. To say I was livid is an understatement. So once things calmed down, and finally started to go back to normal, I realized it was the end of the week and weigh in time. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be happy with the number I would see.
So this morning when I weighed myself, I saw I lost 0 lbs. Yup, a big fat zero, nothing. I’m disappointed in myself and wish I could have handled my stress better. One night I ended up cheating with sushi and a some wine. I’m sure that didn’t help one bit.
Week 2 – 1 lb.
Week 5 – 2 lbs.
Aside from the stress, I wasn’t proactive enough to get in My Daily Three. I rarely exercised. I actually didn’t get in a good amount of activity until this past weekend. We had nice long walks on Saturday and Sunday, but I really wish I had made more of an effort to get in more activity the other days of the week.
I also didn’t do a very good job of getting all my servings of vegetables in. I rarely had any salads for lunch. I’ll admit, pretty much the only vegetable I put on my pizza was mushrooms. Finding the time to get to the store for fresh produce just didn’t seem to be in the cards.
I think I let my stress get to me a little too much. I skipped meals I shouldn’t have skipped. Some days I ended up eating more than I should have, while on others I rarely ate anything. My body was probably confused, wondering what I was doing!
So I’m trying to shake off the disappointment from this past week and focus on the upcoming week. I need to make sure I get all My Daily Threes in and no more cheating! Sushi and wine will be there when this is over. In the mean time, I need to get my act together so I can see the pounds drop again.
