The tail end of last year was not my best. I gained. I tried denying it, but in the end, I'm up 10 lbs. It sucks, but I'm owning up to it.
How did it happen?
Too much snacking/nibbling at work combined with not being as active as I thought I was. I quit finding the motivation to get up in the morning for runs. The snacking/nibbling was the big downfall.
The good news, I stopped the upward progression at the turn of the new year.
What I'm changing:
Getting back to tracking.
Working on better control of my eating patterns. I recently changed jobs and will now be on a 2nd shift lifestyle. This will place extra importance on maintaining control over my eating patterns.
And ultimately utilizing not having to fight my sleep schedule! I naturally seem to want to sleep between the hours of 1am and 9am which will work perfectly with my new schedule.
Week 1 has gone well. Although I haven't been eating enough (:-O) over the past few days. I just haven't been that hungry which I will blame on the new schedule. I'm sure that will change as I acclimate.
So that's where I'm at. Being mindful of my diet.
I've allowed myself off a couple weeks from working out but this weekend I'm back at it.
I can get back on track.
