Mad at myself. {Rant post}

I went on the scale the other day and it read 189 and I cursed at myself… I know that Thanksgiving just ended and I shouldn’t beat myself up but it’s too hard for me not to… I worked so hard to get to 170 and when I put on the slightest amount of weight, I get pissed. So, once the holiday was over I punished myself at the gym, went hard and felt great after.. I am also getting back to my very strict eating habits and with doing that I am at 186, so I have 16 more pounds to lose. I feel the extra weight on my bones and see it in my face and I get disgusted with myself. I know that this extra weight is because I am currently not working but will be soon, so there is my extra activity for the days that I am missing right now along with working out and eating right.

When I talk about this with family and friends they tell me not to be so hard on myself, that I will lose it again, and I don’t look like I have put any weight on..I know I shouldn’t be hard on myself but, I don’t think they understand my mental state of the whole situation. My mental state about weight, more importantly my own weight, is different from everyone and it will forever be. It is hard for me to put it into words why I beat myself up so much. That’s why it’s just better for me to get back into my own world of how I lead my life and go from there because it works for me.

So, last night I was on Pinterest looking for gym workouts that will help me gain muscles because I am kinda tired of the routine that I am currently doing, and I found one that has you do the whole body along with cardio. I also wrote down a weeks worth of meals that I need to make/stick to (like I used to) to get back down to my goal weight of 170. Now that I have the fire in me to lose this weight, I know I will get back down to where I want to be and my life will be flowing smoothly again.

Here is my week of food if you are curious and want to give it a try yourself! I also wrote on the top of it “Get back to 170!”, “No cheat days for awhile!”, “Back to portion control”, and “Workout for 4 days, 5 tops!” for additional motivation.
