This week is neither Weigh-In nor Workout Wednesday, because I’ve barely done any of either over the last week. But that’s what I expected with the fam in town, graduation, etc. This week and weekend is crrrrazzzyyyy, but next week I PROMISE I’m back after it.
Are any of y’all Biggest Loser watchers?
It’s one of the few shows and the only reality TV show I’ll watch. And let me tell you, my heart just broke for Daris when he gained those 2 pounds. And I could totally relate. (for those of you who don’t watch – They went home for 30 days to train for a marathon on their own. Daris ran his little heart out but stress ate himself into GAINING 2 pounds, while the other contestants were losing 10-20 pounds).
Getting to the gym is never my problem. I regularly burn anywhere from 700-1000 calories per workout (spinning, running, lifting, etc.), and work out usually 5 times a week. My problem? Eating.
Ya know that commercial for Alli that’s like "You eat when you're happy. You eat when you're bored. Sometimes you don't know WHY you eat" ??
OMG. GET OUTTA MY HEAD ALLI COMMERCIAL!
I eat when I’m happy. Or sad. Or stressed (oh good Lord do I eat when I’m stressed!). Or bored. Or because someone else is eating. Or because no one else is eating. Get the picture?
So on Biggest Loser when Daris went into the kitchen in the middle of the night and started scarfing more calories in 10 minutes than he’d eaten all day, it was like I was watching myself raid the fridge in the middle of the night.
So what’s YOUR weight loss problem? Do you eat healthy all day and struggle to get to the gym?
Work out HARD but eat everything you can get your hands on before/after? Are you a stress eater? Emotional eater? How the hell do you deal with it?
Do you not have weight loss problems? If so, go away. JK… sort of.
I’ve at least figured out my problems and WHY I can’t lose weight, but addressing/fixing the problems is a whole ‘nother can o worms. I need Jillian Michaels to move in with me. And lock my fridge.
p.s. this was my 400th post. Sometimes I’m baffled that anyone reads my drivel, and sometimes I’m like duh, I’m hilarious and amazing, who WOULDN’T want to read this shit? But anyway, thanks, especially to those of you who have been reading back when I had like 7 readers per day. You’re awesome.
