Overwork, stress, illness and exhaustion...these are all elements that threw me off in a big way the last two months. The consequence has me coming entirely off the rails in my weight loss and slipping like mad. To the point where I feel incredibly depressed with myself.
However, there are two differences this time:
First, I didn't gain back any weight. While I might have slipped into apathy, I didn't slip into particularly bad habits. I have been more careful with what I choose to eat, my portions are normal, and all that. Even if my exercise has been non-existent thanks to being unable to breath past the phlegm in my chest for almost three weeks.
Second, I know I can get back into things, and even better, I know HOW TO DO IT. It is easy as pie (which I won't be eating!).
So my plan for the next two weeks: Back to basics. Measuring out my food, tracking every day, exercising ten minutes a day like in stage one, and not doing ANYTHING beyond that. Not until the two weeks are up and I know I have all of it down again. Then I am going back to what was working before, which was cardio four times per week, thirty minutes a day, strength training twice a week but Kettlebells.
No cheating, woman! No cheating!
