Last week's entry had me confused at my exercising 9 times the prior week, eating less than the daily caloric recommendation and gaining 2lbs.
This past week I only exercised 3 times, ate the daily caloric recommendation and lost 2.2lbs.
Really though, these past few days-scratch that, this whole dang past week has been uber stressful. What started out as being a nice family getaway/mini-reunion, turned out to be my own personal emotional Frankenstorm, if you will.
And I ate my way through it.
Through it, in it, and around it actually.
We came home about an hour ago, I got on the scale, and found that I had lost. Confused, indeed.
And so, I've decided to dedicate this upcoming week to finding balance. There will still be residual stress from the past week, but I will not use food to get through it. I will get back to eating well, tracking, and exercising because that is what will make me stronger-physically, mentally and emotionally (not cheeseburgers and chunky kit-kat bars, no matter what I thought last week).
I will exercise, but not over-zealously unless I just need to getoutandwalkbecauseIjustcan't
takeitanymore, of course. I will put only good, nutritious foods into my body, make sure I'm eating at least the minimum recommended number of calories, and drink lots of water. I will talk things through with the people that are stressing me out, or at least journal the heck out of it.
I need to find my balance and I'm going to begin to do so this week. Hope you all have a wonderfully balanced week as well! =D
