So, I gained back two pounds this week, even though I felt like I had been doing really well with working out and watching my food. Not good enough though, and I'm pretty sure that it is my latenight eating habits causing the extra calories.
Obviously this requires a closer examination of this habit to see how I can modify it into something more healthy. My current idea is this: I live in a neighborhood that is as safe as anyplace can be, so as long as I'm not walking in the middle of the road with all black on it would be safe to go outside for a bit. I don't plan on exercising though, because I want to stay calm so I can go back to bed more easily. What I will do is take a bowl of veggies and a glass of water outside and just sit on the porch for about 15-20 minutes and see if that helps. Because I'm not entirely certain if I'm really wanting lots of food in the middle of the night (even though I do think I feel hungry) or if I'm just feeling restless and can't think of anything else to do at 2am other than eat food. :P
That said, just because I gained weight back, I'm not counting this week as a loss. I think I did very well about finding active things to do each day. I tried out some more beginner/intermediate level strength and cardio exercises, and I walked 10 miles. That might not seem like a lot of walking to the more advanced members of this site, but I was personally impressed that I'd managed to get that much walking in without feeling exhausted. Next week I will see if I can push it a little farther or try to beat my times from this week.
Oh also a blurry photo of the tat I got this week. :3 So like I said, this week certainly wasn't all bad!
