Not a good week

Friday, September 21, 2012

The last three days have been bad - minimal exercise and going over my calories. My excuse this time is my period and a bad head cold. Okay, when you sinuses are full of snot, that can deter certain types of exercise but one can still get out and walk - which is what I did last night. Hooked the leash up to my overweight dog and we went for a walk.

I've been craving cheese. I don't think its related to my period but to stress. I go through these phases every so often. I had some low days at work - my 90-day review is coming up for my new job and I'm worried. Its a new position and I feel like I have to justify its existence, and mine for that matter. When things like this come up, I need to let it bounce around inside my head before I figure out what to do with it.

So I spent my lunch hour today looking at sparkpages and success stories. It helped put things in perspective - I can do this and I want to do this. I'm only 5 lbs away from my first goal - 10% weight loss. So although I get tired of tracking my foods and still don't have a good exercise habit - I need to get back on track.

One thing I am happy about though, except for Tuesday, I did log my foods on the days I knew I was going over. In the past, I would overeat, not log out of guilt and stop everything. This time I'm facing it and recommitting to my changes.
