Setbacks and rebounds
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Seems like forever since I have been on Spark. A few weeks ago, I had to go to Savannah for a wedding with my husband. I did really well with my diet, but had no opportunity for exercise. I stopped taking my metformin because it was upsetting my stomach, and because I was only taking it for weightloss and not insulin resistance, I felt comfortable with my decision. The upside to the metormin was that it kept my eating and drinking habits very well in check. I didn't stray off plan for fear that it would tear my stomach apart. Now that I don't have that as my back-up, I have slowly fallen back into bad habits. Nothing crazy, like fried food ten times a week. Just not tracking my intake. My new elliptical, which I LOVE, bit the dust after just a few weeks. I was using it daily for at least thirty minutes, but most days an hour. Apparently, it was a POS. I am taking it back to the store next week and hopefully I can get store credit. On top off all this, my oldest daughter has been battling a brutal stomach virus that has been going on almost seven days...that means I am not getting anything done around the house because my baby needs me. Long story short, I am still here...oh, and despite not tracking my food and exercising like a mad woman, I haven't gained any of the weight I had lost! Hopefully things will start to calm down around here and I can get back to it. I just wish that I did a better job of managing everyone elses needs in addition to my own.
