The "Jen Diet" is defined as this: 4 steps forward, 3 steps back.
In other words...do you eat good (moving forward toward your goals) Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only to slip up (backwards) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday?
Boy I sure do! It's like a wicked cycle I'm in and even though I'm sticking my big toe out and TRYING to stop the wheel from turning that same direction....I'm hardly slowing it down.
Go with me here:
I wake up Monday morning and I'm off to a great start with my veggie omlet and slice of fruit. Tuesday goes well, Wednesday is good, Thursday and I'm still hanging in there because I know what's right around the corner...the WEEKEND!!!
Friday morning I wake up and say T.G.I.F., Let's have PANCAKES with SYRUP for breakfast to celebrate!!! Noon rolls around and I think, "I've been good all week...I think I'll just have hotdogs and mac-n-cheese with the kids for lunch!" Dinner time arrives and of COURSE...I've cooked dinner all week...so "LET'S GO OUT!!!!", I say!
Saturday-repeat from Friday
Sunday-repeat from Friday
Sunday 9 pm..."Oh! My! Gosh! I feel like a rhino! I have GOT to stop eating like this!!!"
Hmmmm...and I wonder why I can't lose any weight!?!
Do the math...I move up, up, up, up and then go back, back back....4-3=1. So while I'm still moving somewhat toward my goal..I'm going at a riduclously slow pace.
I still have 15 pounds I want off by Memorial Day.....so what's a girl to do? I guess even Beachbody coaches/fitness instructors need a swift KICK in the BUTT sometimes!
...wonder if I can get my foot back there?
