Tuesdays Confession

Something that has been weighing me down is the amount of food I have been eating lately, literally.  I love to work out, and run, and I'm a part of the Tone It Up community, however, I CANNOT CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF FOOD THAT HAS BEEN PUT IN MY MOUTH LATELY! Its horrible.  Ive gained 8 pounds in the past month, and try as I might to counteract the damage with vast amounts of exercise, the scale continues to read larger and larger numbers.

It must be emotional, because at the beginning of every week I make a plan, shop for the perfect foods, and gain all kinds of motivation.  And by Tuesday every week I'm a huge failure.  It seems like the more I try to fix the problem, the more obsessed I become, and thus the more I think about food, and the more I think about food THE MORE FOOD I EAT!!! Its horrible.  I know that if I just stopped obsessing then I could gain control over this, and get back to my normal weight.  I mean I have a wedding this summer!  I have to be able to fit into my bridesmaids dress!

So I submit to you, dear blogging community, how do I turn this around? Does anyone else have these issues? Tell me its not just me!


  1. Just got through the same thing here, I thought well just exercise more...yea that doesn't work haaaa. Im right there with you sister!

  2. I am so right there with you! The only thing really saving me is my fitness pal. I love that annoying little ap on my iPhone.

  3. Aww, I have definitely been there too. The thing that works best for me is drinking a TON of water, like minimum 2L per day but more like 3-4L is ideal and your stomach feels full even though its just full of water. Good luck!

  4. Hi Cristen! I just wanted to come thank you for your comment on my Mind Over Matter post. Your VERY sweet words mean a ton!

  5. I've been there as well. I will eat healthy for a while and then I start to crave junk food especially carbs. Try not to be to hard on yourself we all have our moments.
