I weighed in this week and breathed a sigh of relief when I saw the scale in the same place as last week. My eating has been sloppy and inconsistent. My tracking of food and meal planning have been rather poor as well. I'm suffering from motivational challenges.
You see, it's grass pollen season and I'm feeling under the weather. My reaction to the current pollen count manifests as a low grade depression and fatigue, which saps all my ambition. Then I get toothaches, ear aches, and finally a sinus infection. The worst part is if I was motivated to take care of myself in the first stage, I might better avoid the latter stage. Instead, I'm so tired and blue it's hard to care about anything.
So I've eaten some things I'm not proud of lately and I was worried about today's weigh in. Fortunately, it went well, and I've started taking a few measures against my problems so hopefully things will begin improving. The fact that I'm actually making an effort to eat well and take care of myself today is a positive sign.
I hope you're all faring better this week and taking good care of yourselves.
Sometimes, we can be our own worst enemies, but we also have the potential to be our best allies.
