I'm back after a nice long weekend up in the mountains, and I definitely feel relaxed but also that I did not maintain my routine while I was up there. I did go for a long ass walk for an hour, but I am so used to having my elliptical runner it's tough to really feel you are getting a work out if you switch things up to a different means of exercise that isn't a full on "i'm gonna kick your ass in the gym" kind of work out. Also, granny's cooking was amazing but of course comfort food so I tried to have controlled portions but it was tough, especially with really nothing to do but relax eat and watch movies. I hope my weigh in next week doesn't show I failed any, I have to definitely get back on track this week!
Control is such an issue that I do not like to admit is important with weight loss. I want to be one of those laid back whatever people who shed the pounds regardless of calorie counting but I'm starting to think I will A. gain weight or B. end up unhealthy and losing weight the wrong way. Knowledge is power, and I'm glad for this website and everyone involved because I need to keep a healthy outlook on this journey and stay knowledgable as to the balance of calories and exercise as not to plateau, starve, overeat, give up. Because the latter I am very, very good at.
