I lost 2.4 lbs this week. The number on the scale really surprised me as I have stopped exercising this week and not been eating as nutritiously as I should've been. Course, I might've been being mentally hard in myself as a couple of you have pointed out to me. I've been trying to track. I did feel a speed up in my metabolism (if there is such a thing) as I was constantly hungry this week.
Next week I want to focus on the quality of what I eat instead of so much on the quantity. Today we had a family Christmas with Randy's side and I did eat a lot today without restraint. I tried to choose healthier options but ate a lot nonetheless.
I'm going to try not to let work zap me of my energy so much this week.
Things I am thankful for today:
Cameron making it out of his car accident safe!

So I've been pretty MIA this week. I've been working at least 10 hours a day. By the time I get home, I don't have any motivation to think, let alone log on to the computer and type. I do miss my spark friends and I'm doing my best to check up on every one.
I'm coming down with something. Yesterday my glands hurt and I was sneezing. I took it easy all day (it was my day off!) and I also went to bed early. I was a little dizzy this morning but felt generally better. I feel achy now and will go to bed after this post.
I've been eating like crap (although trying to stay in the correct calorie range) and not working out. Adding that ontop of my stress and not sleeping like I should, I'm not suprised that I am getting sick. I've tried to focus on getting some NUTRITIOUS food into my body yesterday and today. I've also tried to get my water intake in too. Hopefully this will get me well soon.
I have to remember to take some time to take care of me on top of my crazy work schedule. I can tell that I am depressed and overwhelmed by work right now. I need to stop letting it affect my eating habits, and try to reserve SOME energy for exercising. If I can't manage to exercise, then I need to at least eat nutritiously. I am trying not to beat myself up on top of every thing else. I. Am. Exhausted. Working 60 hours a week, then grocery shopping, christmas shopping, and cleaning on all my sparetime afterwards, doesn't leave a lot of relaxation or fun. I'm not making excuses for myself, I am just tired.
Tried on my wedding dress and it fell down (now i need to size exchange it lol)
People keep noticing my weight loss.
I feel better about myself.
I also physically feel better.
Things I'm thankful for:
spark people to always come back to.
My health (in general, not the being sick right now part)

This was a little scary to post since its so intimate, however, look at the difference!
As my dear friend LOLAMOM2 has informed me, I have lost the equivalent to:
a Welsh Terrier, a large male Maine Coon, his medium-sized box of clumping litter, a car tire, an average one-year-old, a KitchenAid Standing Mixer, or a Christmas turkey that feeds 10-15 people.
HOW IT FEELS?! Easier to breethe. No knee pain. Little back pain. Quicker to move! Higher energy and overall just good. :)
