So week 2 was another success! I've managed to not only hold the 4 kg weight loss from week 1 but to drop another full kg! I'm very happy about that and already my clothes are feeling bigger on me. Such a great feeling to be on my way. A few things though have been running through my brain today though which have me a little concerned and I'd love some feedback if anyone out there feels they want to give it.
First of all, today, all day, was really tough. I felt tired, oh so tired. And hungry, but not "there's a rumble in my tummy" hungry, but a "i want fooooood" hungry which I suppose can be identified as eating for the wrong reasons. I didn't really give into it, but I absolutely inhaled my dinner and had a bit of ice cream. I went over my calories by about 16 calories total, but I was worried more about how I felt. I'm proud that I managed to maintain pretty good choices, but this led me to wonder if how I am feeling is normal. I imagine wanting to go out and have a massive dinner of Mexican with no consideration of how many calories I'll be consuming. Or pizza. Or Indian. But I know that is what put me in this position in the first place so I do know that probably not ok to do. Or is it? You hear of people having cheat days, but is that just a slippery slope? I think it is....what do you think?
As far as the rest of the things on my mind, the next is that I have a work trip to Hong Kong on the 21st of the month and I'll be gone for a week. I've worked out which days I will have time to exercise (there is a gym at the hotel) but I'm really concerned about my eating. I am really scared to slip back into old habits while with a bunch of friends and colleagues for a prolonged period of time. One night I can do, even a day or two. But a week??? And we'll be going to Disneyland and other fun places with lots of bad food all over the show. I know it will be hard, but I wanted to put it out there so others know my hurdles and I can be held accountable.
So anyway, that is all from this lady tonight. Still super happy with week two's results, week three will be another stepping stone towards my 68 kg and then week 4 while in Hong Kong will be a bit challenge to help me in my efforts for a future healthy life.
Thanks everyone for listening!
