Trying to get my Spark back..


Monday, May 28, 2012

It's been a rough couple of weeks. Fiancee has been working nearly around the clock, for a few days at a time sometimes. Not only does this have an effect on my mood and stress levels, but it also makes it impossible to go to the gym (I have a baby..). Also, when he is here, we tend to go out to eat to celebrate just being able to enjoy each other's company. I've also been having some minor health issues that have made me feel the need to take it easy on my body.

All of this has come together and kind of caused me to fall off the wagon a bit. I've been lax about tracking, and not getting much exercise. I've been doing some stress eating, but still haven't broken my rule about NO fast food, which I'm proud of. That stuff used to be a major go-to stress food for me, and I haven't had it at all in 6 weeks.

The good news: I haven't gained. The bad news: I haven't lost. I'm going to try to get back on track this week. My goals for the next 7 days are to walk every day (today is done), get my water in, and stay in calorie range. I'm trying not to go too hard, or say I'll do a million things, because when I'm feeling this way, that kind of thinking just adds to my stress.

Ok...Here's to a great week!

    emoticon ...you've already taken the first steps (walking) today =)
Too, when you and your hubby go out maybe consider dog bagging 1/2 your meal to help stay on track or share a meal.

YOU will do GREAT this week!!!

    Have a great week! Just stick to walking everyday, and drinking 8 oz. of water a day, and include a lot of fruits and veggies in your meals with small portions with 2 healthy snacks in between meals. emoticon
