When I stop logging and blogging I blow it. It has been almost a month since my last blog because all of a sudden life got busy, groceries got scarce and I reverted to my old stress habits.
Fast food is bad - I really don't do well when I eat it but I still eat it.
Just to let you in on a little of my last month.
Cell phone broke - had to get it replaced - I was very lucky they said it was a software issue and not me and replaced it no charge - yeah!!!
Van stopped running - got a new alternator - $588 then the waterpump went bad another $500 then the fuel pump went out another $580 then my husbands car battery stopped - another $129, then the refrigerator quit - $300 - it has been a $2000 week, this all happened in the span of one week. I am blessed though that we got a bonus check that covered all expenses and everything was repairable and didn't need to be scrapped entirely.
Had to clear out our theater trailers before May 2 and I finished the job by hiring a few of my homeless students to help me and now my garage is full of leftovers that I am trying to give away on free cycle. Good news - one load went to our new storage space today and 2 loads are being picked up tonight so by Saturday everything hopefully will be gone.
Exercise has been non existant, I didn't take my thyroid for 4 days because it was waiting at pharmacy for pick up, I haven't had my fruit/green shake more than 4 times in the last month and yesterday I even ate a big mac (I haven't had gluten in 9 months). I have not logged my food or kept up on my water.
Today I was flying and I just was over stressed and I grabbed the leftover bag of marshmallows - about 10 and had that for breakfast but I can't count that as a healthy breakfast - I did better with lunch with chicken salad and crunchmaster gluten free crackers and water. Now that my refrigerator is fixed I will move everything back up from our bar refridge and try to plan some better dinners and lunches and get back to my smoothies - I did buy a new Magic Bullet.
Prince is in Onederland and will be home in just over 2 weeks -this weekend I am going back on a one week cleanse again to rejumpstart me - I am 5 lbs from onderland, maybe I can get there before he comes home - I will start walking again and getting back to the Y I hope. I have 2 big cleaning days with my lady that helps me planned for Tuesday and Thursday next week but I will at least try to walk daily.
I really do best when I own what I eat and write it down. I don't think I have eaten terribly over calories but my choices have been very processed and emotionally chosen.
I will do this, I must.
