I am addicted to food. There, I said it. When co-workers and/or vendors bring in snacks, I can't seem to help myself! That is fine when we are bringing in things like apples and oranges and pears to cut up and share, but when there is candy, and cookies, and other not so healthy snacks involved, it's like I have never seen food before.
Ok, so it isn't like I start stuffing my face like I haven't eaten all day, but I take some, even though I am telling myself in my head, "you don't need that" or "you aren't hungry. why are you taking that"
All the exercise I do is not going to help if I do not figure out a way to say no to myself and mean it! This last week, I gained 1.5 pounds instead of losing. Last week I maintained from the week before. This next week will hopefully be better. I need to figure out how to get it together! I am just so sick of seeing myself in the mirror like this.
I want to lose 20 pounds before Stroke Camp weekend at the end of March and at the rate I am going, I have a long way to go. I would much rather be 50 pounds lighter, but that is not realistic or healthy really to lose that quickly. I just want to stop being embarrassed when I see the pictures from camp...
On a higher note, I just created my first challenge! I took some ideas from other challenges I have seen, so hopefully this one helps me as well as the rest of my team of sisters!
I didn't go to the therapy gym this morning because of my podiatrist appointment, so I definitely need to go tomorrow! My physical therapist added a couple balance exercises to the mix, so here's hoping I remember how to do them all! Thankfully she draws the most awesome stick figures!
A part of me is telling myself to go to the exercises I can do at home... the other part of me is telling me to go to bed... not 100% sure which side will win out right now...
Here's to the start of a better week!
