What a week!
I seem to be struggling in several areas.
My exercise has been lacking. This week I have done only 4 days of cardio and one of those was for just 15 minutes and another was spent fishing. I did manage in the other two days to walk 5.20 miles.
Strength training, what is strength training? I don't seem to know this week. While I was on my Biggest Loser team I usually averaged around 210 minutes a week, this week I did absolutely nothing, a big fat ZERO!
On a positive note, I actually feel guilty about not exercising.
I have also had difficulty staying in my calorie range (5 of the 7 days) and SP has raised it due to an increase in my exercise. This week excluded!
I have had two binges this week. The worst part of the binges is that I knew what I was doing and it didn't seem to bother me at all. I just wanted to eat. I'm not sure if I was hungry, probably not, since both binges took place late at night while watching TV and after everyone else was asleep.
I have learned to take each day as it comes and that tomorrow is another day, a new beginning, but that is absolutely no reason to eat and eat and eat...
I am worried that maybe I am self-sabotaging myself. I am so close to onederland, a place I haven't been since getting pregnant with my first daughter 17 years ago. What could I be afraid of? I've lost 50 pounds so far, why would losing a few more bother me?
Water anyone? I have plenty, because I haven't been drinking mine, well not enough of it anyway. I haven't replaced it with anything else either. I don't drink soda, tea or coffee, I just haven't had much to drink. I do realize this could be one reason for overeating, since water does help fill you up. Thank goodness this weeks LTGL challenge is water, this will help me to increase my daily water intake.
Well, it's on to Week 3, hopefully, it will be much better than this one was.
