rollercoaster week. my emotions (and of course, eating habits) were all over the place. ended on a good note, though. had a GREAT interview yesterday. i won't hear back until monday, but i think there's a very good chance that i got the job (which starts tuesday). it's only a 2-month position, but the money is good, and it would give me a 2-month break from the job app/interview rat race, so that would be great. fingers crossed.
trying not to be so hard on myself about weight loss/eating/exercise right now. today's weigh-in (150) is exactly the same as new years day, which was almost 4 weeks ago. maintaining is nice, but i'm trying to lose weight. but i realize that my grocery budget does not allow for my 'normal' diet of what i like to eat - lots of fresh fruits and veggies, lean meat (aka chicken almost every day), lowfat dairy, complex carbs. there are a lot more processed (hello sodium) and fatty foods in my diet than usual, and not a lot of variety.
i'm doing my best, but lately eating has been about survival, not weight loss. even when i've been hitting the calorie goals that should put me at a pound lost per week, it hasn't been working, and i'm sure stress isn't helping me. i have been able to keep the binging to a minimum, so that's a step in the right direction... although not having the foods i like to eat around may be responsible for that.
anyway. hoping that i'll get this job. it's in the city, so the commute (lots of walking) would be good for me. plus a little extra grocery money would really help kickstart my weight loss.
hopefully, i'll have some good news to report soon!
