Really, I swear! I know I am behind on this post but life just got a bit hectic and I didn’t even have time to sit and do a quick update. Well Tuesday’s weigh-in wasn’t so great. I was up 2.1lbs for a new weight of 159.8lbs and a total loss of 91.8lbs.
I really can’t sigh about this one. It’s completely my fault. The week didn’t get off to a good start due to some celebrations and then it all just went downhill from there. I even stopped tracking somewhere around Saturday and that definitely didn’t help matters. My exercise was also lacking and lo and behold it all showed on the scale.
I really don’t seem to have a middle ground do I? I mean either I lose or gain a bunch, I haven’t had small gains lately, just a big one. Ah well. I’m not too beat up over it and have been getting back on track this week. I had a birthday celebration to attend on Tuesday night at a restaurant, but since then have been doing well. I’m also back on track with the exercise and have worked out everyday since Tuesday. I’m really seeing these gains as slight glitches. I no longer question my ability to get back on track. I know how and I know I can. I also know that I am more interested in eating well and moving then I am in continuing to overeat. I feel better when I take care of my body, that’s just a fact these days. Perhaps for the first time I’m really realizing that momentary satisfaction in overeating is actually not worth it. Eating well and exercising are worth it because I feel so much better all around. Life happens and there are bumps in the road right? It’s all about how we respond and react. And I choose to respond by getting back on track.
I also went out for run this afternoon. It was cool, -8°C, but little wind and a sunny afternoon made for great outdoor running conditions. There’s still lots of snow on the ground, but it wasn’t too bad and didn’t slow me down too much. I only ran for 25 minutes as I don’t have a short scarf or face mask to wear. I wore lots of layers but near the end my face got quite cold. It was still great. I don’t get as many chances to run outside so I’m taking advantage of it when I can. Can’t wait until the weather gets better for running!
I’ll be back this weekend and I’ll be updating my measurements and exercise logs! Hope everyone else is having a good week.
