So, if anyone has noticed, and I am sure you have.... I haven't been posting my victories. That's because there have't been any. I fell off track and gained a few pounds....4 to be exact... and a couple of inches on parts that I had lost on. So... I am back on track now. I feel like I am starting over, which in a sense, I am. Back to weighing and measuring my foods. I did slack off on that aspect, and I know that had something to do with the weight gain. You would think that I could "eyeball" the portion sizes by now, but NOOOO!!! I still need to see the real numbers that my food scale tells me. That, and not eating the snacks that I so love to eat.
I will admit that I no longer eat huge quantities of food, but the snacking did get out of control.... you know.. a couple of cookies here, and brownie there, just a small extra piece of cake for a celebration, you get the idea. So, yeah.. thats where I am at right now. I guess all the bike riding and exercising I do just isn't enough to offset the amount of calories I consume. So enough whining about my failures.. I am on track again, and I will continue to strive toward success.
Oh.... by the way, my blood pressure is down. It was never high enough to be on medication, but high enough for my doctor to be more concerned. He had me monitor it for a while, and since I have been eating healthier, (bef0re falling off the healthy wagon), my pressure did go down to a more reasonable level. So far, so good...no meds yet. Another reason to stay eating healthy.... I don't want to be on meds. I know some people are on it and it has made a dramatic difference, I just don't want to be on meds if I can avoid it.
So... I am done now. On to my exercise time, and charting my foods!
