Holiday struggle

So this weekend was Easter and I had family staying with us for some of it and was with a big group on Sunday. I would classify my eating as Paleo failure. I ordered drinks with a couple meals, had a dessert on Friday, and generally over-ate all weekend. All this was immediately reflected on the scale.

I also was unable to get my usual post-WOD muscle-up today. In the back of my mind was the thought, "You are not strong enough to get a muscle-up with the extra weight." Now I am left wondering if that is true, or it the thought itself sabotaged my attempts.

I am trying not to get discouraged about this. I read Greg Scott's blog about plateaus and know I just need to keep plugging away. My concern, however, is less with plateauing and more with regressing. I fear falling out of shape and re-gaining weight.

It's a struggle to get control of my appetite, keep active, and keep improving.
