Beast Mode: ON!

This morning I woke up with the most uncomfortable stomach ache accompanied with bloating and cramps.  Lovely.  It's been a while since I felt like this but this is what happens when I eat junk food right before bed.

Last night, after Anthony got off work at 10:30, he called to see if I needed anything before he came home.  Yes, please!  F  O  O  D  !  About 30 minutes later, I had my Jack in the Box in hand and inhaled.

Nights like last night happen on occasion (maybe 2x or 3x a month) and I could never figure out why.  I'm not hungry when Anthony calls but I've noticed it happens on days when I either a.) hit a new low weight on the scale (like yesterday!) or b.) hit a personal record during exercise.

Reward with food, much?

That's the thing about me... hitting a personal record (on the scale or in the gym) can lead to to two outcomes:
  1. I get super motivated and have a STELLAR next week OR
  2. I stupidly reward myself and crash and burn for the next couple of days
So why is it so hard to keep away from the stupid when the outcome is never good? 

Who knows!  All I know is this...

Beast mode is turned the F on and I'm gonna kill this next weekend week.  Plans for the weekend:
  • Saturday
    • morning hike
    • followed by lower body training
    • prep meals for Sunday
    • check out new gym location
  • Sunday
    • morning cardio
    • make healthy eating choices at a birthday party
    • back and bi training
    • meal plan for the week
    • cook for the week

I hate that! I do the same thing sometimes. My husband asks every night "Need anything" and usually its right before dinner or later in the evening and it's so hard to say NO when I could have a donut, or ice cream in MY hands in 30 min or less! It doesn't help when he wants something and then asks me if I want too even though I ask him not to do that. This week I have been going H-core and won't let him bring home anything that doesn't fit!

Whenever I see a nice loss on the scale, I want to go out and buy cheesecake! WTF?

I totally reward myself with food and give myself a break when I have reached some sort of fitness or weight goal. WTF is up with that?? Just goes to show ya, no matter how far you come, there is always work to do!!! It's frustrating!!

Same thing for the very same reasons! I so need to turn on the beast!

I could have written this post myself, Annie! (Except Anthony didn't call to ask if he could bring me food.)

Why do we do this??

Mandy said...

I do the same thing! Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!

I reward myself with food all too often and it drives me bananas!! Especially because while I am eating I am thinking 'This is going to go to your love handles'! Yikes!

Go get 'em girl! I know you can do it :)
