okay so things here have been a bit stressful...nothing new. As usual, I get swamped with client work the same time my husband started working third shift...ugh! It's temporary but it throws everything off. The day is jam packed with my juggling everything....I feel like I'm behind in everything and that stresses me out.
Nonetheless, I have been keeping up with my workout program since December. Aside from the week I had a bad cold, I have been at it 5-6 days a week...3 weigh training and 3 cardio.
I know I am toning nicely as my clothes are falling off me....despite what the scale says....it hasn't moved in a month...sigh. My eating has been interesting. I've been pretty clean but for whatever reason I've been sneaking in too many treats on a daily basis. I know much of this is hormonal as It's very close to TOM and it's during this time when my will power seems nonexistent. I'm trying to be hard on myself as, like i said, it's not all bad. Like today I was just hungry all day. I had a clean a yummy breakfast of an egg white omelette with veggies and a side of steel cut oats. An hour later I was ravenous again so i had some almonds. Lunch was a lovely mix of arugula, grilled chicken and a sprinkle of crumbled feta with a splash of homemade light balsamic vinaigrette in half a whole wheat pita. It was so good but I was still hungry so i had 1/2 an apple. About 90 minutes later I felt so hungry again and was tempted to eat some cheese popcorn but i had a cup of lowfat plain yogurt with a 1/2 cup of Kashi GoLean crunch. I felt good for a while and mind you that I was drinking water all day. IF I felt hungry I drank a large glass of water first.
I made it to dinner and had salmon, a large portion of baked fries, veggies and salad...That was a good meal that I was satisfied with. I know that when stay up too late I just open the door for more snacking but it's the only time I can get my client work done and probably another reason why I am not dropping any weight. I need sleep....and another 12 hours in my say...LOL!
I know I am building muscle because of how my clothes fit and I can feel more definition in my arms and legs every week. I also forget that I have PCOS and that makes losing weight extra hard. (If watch The Biggest Loser, PCOS was the reason that Brittney had such a hard time dropping weight no matter how hard she worked. I have to work hard but I'm learning to accept that.
I will keep at this no matter how stressed, how frustrated or how busy I get. It's part of the process and I just have to step over it and move one more step closer.
We can do this!
