Something I’d like to do on Sunday’s moving forward: Consolations and Desolations. What was your Consolation – high point – of the week, and what was your Desolation – low point – for the week. It doesn’t have to be weight or health related – but it can be.
For me, my consolation of the week was yesterday’s boot camp. It was my 3rd boot camp ever, and since it was a Saturday (or maybe because it was a holiday), the trainer(s) were new to me. And, because it was raining, there were only nine of us. The two trainers were right there next to us, adjusting our planks, and showing us what “parallel” looks like in a wall squat. I’m more sore than I’ve ever been and though I can only move slowly, I’m proud of how hard I pushed myself.
As for a desolation, it involves a tube of cookie dough, one of my “trigger” foods. This is a term I learned about back in my Weight Watchers days. Trigger foods are the things you should never purchase, because once you have a bite, you have twenty. I lied to myself when I bought the stuff – told myself that I would be making some cookies for Thanksgiving, all the while knowing I would munch on the dough alone. I ate that whole tube of cookie dough in a matter of 2.5 days.
So what is your consolation and your desolation of the week? And while we’re at it, what are your trigger foods? You can comment, or you can let me know in 140 characters on twitter: @1digitdenim
