I feel horrible. I wasn't able to go to the grocer today, which means I couldn't buy healthy food or anything. I ended up eating a bunch of junk and even drank some whiskey with friends. Arrggh.

It's a new day tomorrow, I am getting back on track. No more than 1200 calories. Going to burn as many as I can!

Same! I went out for dinner last night and skipped training....resulting in me being over my daily calories by over 800! So annoyed at myself now, but at the same time it was nice to have a break! I have only been on the Insanity program for 2 weeks, but it eats up all my free time in the evenings. Even though I ruined my whole day yesterday...I can't decide whether it was worth it. Probably not.

We all need a day off every now and then, don't beat yourself up about it. As you say, tomorrow is another day.

I've decided I am going to work extra hard. In two weeks, if I keep up with eating 1200 calories a day and burning at least 500, I will see results.

I am starting the Richard Simmons "sweating to the oldies" tomorrow. I'll burn around 250 calories a workout - not a ton, but it's a good start.

It's only normal, we all have our days off!! I have the day off on Tuesdays, but I do try to watch what I am eating and not going over... My calorie intake is 1700 a day.... It's ok if we go to the 2500 as long as we exercise 3 times a week for 30 mins, it's ok.. even if it's not 30 mins all at once... We are not perfect. :D Tomorrow is a new fresh day!! Best of luck!! :)

I'll admit on weekends I have the tendency to eat fried, greasy nasty food and sugary drinks. and alcohol. (mmm.. BEER) BUT, I do it so M-F I am so grossed out by what I ate over the weekend that I feel very confident and motivated to eat my healthy veggies and protein shakes! You had a "bad day" but tomorrow is a new start. Focus on being the best you possible tomorrow! And just remember... You can't live the rest of your life without the foods you love. That's just setting yourself up for failure! Everything is ok in moderation =)

You need to eat more.

1200 - 500 (burned via exercise) = 700 total for body functions. My cat requires more calories than that. Sure, you will see "weight" loss, then you will stall.

DONT BEAT YOURSELF UP> Guilt is a powerful emotion that can lead to overeating. You have never fallen far enough that you cannot continue with healthy eating. Never give up. Fat loss is NOT a blanket protocol, it is a process that you must keep tweeking to help you achieve YOUR goals.Everyone is different. Keeping a journal is a great was to keep track of your energy levels, mood, sleep patterns, and cravings. By adjusting your calories and what you eat(what foods your cals come from), you can fine tune your diet to allow you to still lose weight but have the energy and good mood to power through your day. Good luck !!! xx
