BDS Day #8 - Bugger!

I have just about finished my period so I gathered my courage and stood on the scaled this morning. It was about as bad as I expected.

64.9 kg - 15.4% BF which means I am carrying 10kg of fat which is my absolute limit. More careful monitoring of food is in order. Hence the continuing of the Beck Diet Solution.

Workout: Afterburn - 5 x 5 lat pull downs, overhead tricep, box squats, one legged deadlifts, clams and side lunges + 10 min 15/45 intervals on the elliptical

★ Didn't freak out after weighing myself
★ Baked choc-peanut butter and banana cookies
★ Went to the gym even though it was raining
★ Treated myself to a tanning session

I read my Advantages Response Card at least twice.
I read other Response Cards as needed.
I ate slowly, sitting down and noticing every bite
I gave myself credit when I engaged in helpful eating behaviours
I looked at the week ahead and scheduled training and healthy eating into my calendar
I scheduled my training and eating goals on my sidebar -->
