Hopefully I'm back on the upswing...I've been guarding my sleep jealously! Still not packing in a whopping amount of sleep, but a steady 8 hours / night and I think it's making a difference.
This morning Santana's "Oye Co Voma" got me back into the groove a bit, could feel a smidgen of my old self kicking in.
Backed on my strength-training...still DID it, but only 2 sets of reps instead of 3.
Still doing my daily 'mill work...holding @ 4.2 mph for 35-40 mins. Holding off on the jogging...or, rather I just don't have it IN me to jog @ 5 mph yet...!
One of my clients has been up for "walk 'n talk" sessions over the past few days, which has been helpful having another 30-40 mins. of walking each day.
All in all, I think I've passed my nadir...onward and DOWNWARD!
Despite all my sweating it out with the new incline, my plateau continues this week as well, but I've just started a change that I think will help me start dropping again.
And it's NOT counting calories or MEASURING my portions! Not YET, at least...I realize I may have to do this at some point, but I think I've come up with a solution that my forestall those strategies yet a bit longer...lol, I just BALK so over doing those kind of things!
New Strategy: My old habits have been to always keep a jar of unsalted peanuts and raw sunflower seeds handy in the car to snack on. It's been my breakfast and after work snack. But I think if I look at my car the same way as I look at my house and remove this tempting snack (healthy as it may be, calories are calories!) in the car I'm hoping I will begin to see a difference on the scale.
