Rest Day turned a bit disastrous


I hope everyone has had a good day. My rest day with no exercise has been a bit disastrous, I have eaten well over my calorie limits and feel terrible for it. I was doing well for 4 days and fell off the wagon today :-(

Although I am dreading the weigh in day now, I am going to do my best not to let this drag me down. After reading a few people's weightloss success stories, it's good to know when they have fallen of the wagon, they have got back up again and achieved their goals. Anyway I have recorded all my calories I have consumed so at least I know where I can improve. So tomorrow is a new day and YES I will be exercising :-) I will be doing cardio and weights tomorrow

  • yeh I also fell off the wagon this weekend.

    I have kept off 16.5 lbs , now have to lose the 3lbs I have put on.

    Weigh in day is Friday so I am exercising and trying to be careful when socialising this week.

    Good luck and here's hoping everyone like us gets back on track

  • Good for you! we all have bad days where we fall off the wagon, i think the key is to get back on track again, and by still calculating everything you can see what foods were your downfall for future reference. I find it difficult to have rest days as i feel restless like i should be doing something and definitely struggle more with snacking, i have found on those days i do something with my hands i like crafty things and im less likely to want to snack with glue on my hands been doing a lot of paper mache projects lately, find something thats keeps your mind off snacking, as if your anything like me boredom can be a nightmare. Good luck getting back on track

  • Awww thanks for the post. I feel much better after reading your post. As much as rest days are important, I feel restless and bored on them. X

  • Glad im not alone in that, think its all this extra energy we have nowadays lol
