The last few days have been killer, but good. Iím averaging 4 hours of sleep a night (not good I know), but have successfully tracked my food for 2 days straight. Iím proud of myself. Iíve been blowing through my calorie ranges which is extremely frustrating, but I have been practicing intuitive eating and trying to keep the freggies going. Yesterday, I got 5 servings in which is great.
I miss Zumba and the gym!
Now more than ever, Iíve realized that this weight loss journey changes A LOT. You simply cannot do the same things you did at the beginning, and the body is often one stubborn machine. The body wonít do what you want it to do, you are at its mercy and most importantly, you must respect it. Filling it with crappy food just wonít cut it, itíll come back to bite you. Iím sure most of you know this already, but Iím mostly repeating this for myself. The key is to keep tweaking your plan, seeing what works and what doesnít. Trial and error.
As with a lot of Sparkers, weekends are deadly. My weekends are deadly. All of my planning and self control goes out the window. However, this weekend, I intend to change that and remain in control of my eating. Because of the 1 hour drive, my cast mate was kind enough to open her home to me and another girl so that we wouldnít have to waste so much gas. She doesnít live too far, and itís certainly a God send to me to have somewhere to sleep that isnít an hour away. There are still nice people out there! She even asked us what our favorite drinks and foods were!
Iíve been cast in two extra shows recently (so technically, Iím in 3 shows at once), and am currently trying to figure out scheduling. Itís going to be crazy, but at least with one of the gigs, I get paid and is also a world premiere musical. Really cool stuff! Iím sure itíll all get figured out eventually, but I worry about rehearsals overlapping. Iíll do the best I can. Trial and error.
Do the best you can SparkBuddies, the journey is worth it.
