That's what I feel like I'm doing. First, I get the nutrition plan going great, weight coming off, but not working out like I should minimum 30 mins a day. Next month, I have the working out going great, then I start giving into cravings and binges or I get sick! My Mom always said, "every time you start loosing weight you get sick". So, for this nutrition plan I tried to make sure I took my meds like I should and get as much rest as possible. I'll be darn if I haven't been sick.
When I'm not feeling well, I noticed that I'm fatigued and too tired to workout longer than 30 mins. That 30 mins consists of walking the dog 2x a day for 15 mins. No cardio. When I'm feeling the lest bit better, I'll add on a chair exercise. When I'm feeling really good, I add on a cardio!
I've also noticed that when I'm not feeling well, those cravings start! And I mean strong cravings. I usually want ice cream or potato chips. So what I've done is purchased Weight Watchers ice cream. Varieties of it! Sandwiches or Carmel/Fudge bars! They are so delicious and really satisfy the ice cream cravings! Yum! But I haven't found anything to substitute for the chips yet and I'm wondering why I crave salty chips.
I'm purchasing a blender so that I can make protein smoothies. I tried the Pea Protein Powder for awhile and it did take away the cravings and I was full longer but...... I didn't have a blender and couldn't mix it well so I stopped.
I've said all of this to say, I'm still a work in process.....I'm trying......maybe not hard enough all the time but I'm not giving up. I'm going to keep dissecting this until I figure out what works best for me. This time, I've got that STAYING power. I just need to FIGURE it all out! Balance it all out!
One day I can move from the teeter totter over to the rock wall and climb to the top!!
P.S. I've gained 6 lbs but it ain't over!!!
