I seem to be stuck at the same weight which is both good and bad. The good news is that the 50 pounds has been gone for six months. The bad news is that I will need to buckle down if I want to see further change. After a significant absence, I am back to food journaling, which is good. But I'm having trouble fitting in the exercise, which is bad. I have been relying on attending 2-3 kickboxing classes a week, plus lifting 2x a week. I've missed the last 3 classes because every single time, I've had a meeting or social engagement. I think I will need to be more strategic in planning my day; if I know I have an evening meeting then (yikes!) I might need to get up earlier and workout in the morning.
My life is in a state of flux/transition/change--whatev
er you want to call it and things are happening at such rapid-fire pace that my head is spinning. I'm transitioning from one job to another and already have a plate that's filling with obligations such as hiring staff, reading industry materials and registering for trainings and conferences. Also, I just wrapped up a big consulting project. It took 100 hours but the payday will be SWEET. I'm also volunteering with several organizations and there's meetings, conference calls, emails, etc.
Then there's all of the dating. I am just dating up a storm. As any single woman would tell you--dating has it's own share of angst, uncertainty and stress. When is he going to text or call? Should I text or call first? Where is this going, really? Do I look fat in this dress? LOL
In a nutshell, I've found a way to thrive as a new empty nester. This is all good and I am totally embracing these changes. I just need to stay focused on my eating and exercise habits so I can drop these 5 pounds I've set as my next goal.
Onward and downward.
