Logical health analysis

Friday, June 25, 2010

So this is my first blog entry in 5 months...I just re-read my last one and interestingly enough it's about the same thing that this one is going to be about: a small weight gain, 1 lb this time. But the point is that this time I'm trying NOT to make it about this one pound. I gained around 15 lbs more since my last blog entry, so clearly I have not yet learned to manage grad school and health, but for the past 3 weeks (since school's been out), I've been eating MUCH healthier foods and exercising more. If I haven't managed to turn that into much of a weightloss yet (net 1/2 lb down so far), then I don't want to get down about it. So this 1 lb up from last week...it's explainable: while I've been eating healthier foods, I had an enormous appetite during the first 5 days of this past week. I made meatloaf (which lasted through these days), and I think it's probably just a food that is too high in calories for the amount of fullness it gives me. For the past two days (post-meatloaf), I've done much better, so I think there's definitely a lesson there. Also, I'm proud of all the healthy foods I've been buying and preparing! I'm proud that I'm still dedicated to yoga! 3 weeks is not a very long amount of time, and I shouldn't expect my body to automatically adapt to my re-commitment to health. I still have many more relatively-peaceful summer weeks before school starts up again, and I'm confident I can lose some of my extra weight. I've set an ambitious goal for the end of the summer (because that motivates me), but even if I don't meet it, I'll know that I've taken steps to improve my life and reverse bad habits.
