Trying Not to Derail
Monday, November 26, 2012
I feel like I'm trying to steer a vehicle that has lost its power steering!
The week before Thanksgiving - husband was out of town and I ate lots of hot chocolate and toast I'm assuming for "comfort." I noticed inflammation from all this: my face breaks out (too much dairy), and refined flour in the bread (puffy eyes and face), and a general feeling of lethargy. That, and I hardly walked which is my main form of exercise.
The week of Thanksgiving - hectic schedules and general anxiety of the anticipated holiday had me noshing still on hot chocolate and toast and whatever else I felt like eating. General feeling of lethargy and disgust. Didn't exercise.
Thanksgiving - The lunch was around 1:00. I'm not sure I stopped eating in order to say that I ate dinner, but I'm certain the intake was that of lunch, dinner, snacks, and so on.
The weekend after Thanksgiving - you know, why stop? But I did walk probably 2 miles one way from the parking lot to the Horseshoe (OSU stadium for the OSU v. UM game). Wishing I had a pedometer that day. Although I woofed down stadium food. Ugh.
Monday - Hooray! Time for normalcy! Today I eat healthy, drink water, take my vitamins, but have yet to exercise. That, and wear zit cream. Awesome.
I have not weighed myself for two weeks. I will not weigh myself again this Friday because I'm afraid I'll freak out if I see the scale jump up. Instead, my m.o. is to continue logging my food, find a way to get exercise (bundle up!!!), and get my head into this web site as much as possible to re-find my mojo and motivation.
I *WILL* lose the rest of my weight, and will NOT tank my past months' efforts throughout December just because sweets and treats are all over the place (and because schedules are all over the place, and people, and gift-buying stresses, etc.).
Thank you for your support - as always!
