I got back on the wagon again today.
I've been on and off so many times of late, it's no wonder I'm struggling. My weight is all over the place and I'm munching on things when I'm not hungry and I had a realization this week that perhaps, my old binge eating issues are rearing their ugly heads. So, it's time to start making some old changes again.
The first of which is, I am going to be accountable here, by blogging at least once a week on "Wagon Wednesdays".
I am also going start keeping a food journal again for a while. When I go to the store a bit later today, I'm going to pick up a notebook for this purpose. Keeping track of what I'm eating, writing how I feel about things when I am emotionally eating. In the past, that has lead to me making better choices naturally.
I've started working out again. I've been seriously pouty and grumpy about working out since I haven't been able to run thanks to my heel being uncooperative. It's on my summer to do list to get to a doctor about it, but I have some other medical issues I'm dealing with right now, so hopefully by mid July or August I can get in. But... I put batteries in the wii fit and started using it again. Sure, it's not any where near as challenging as I would like, but I don't hurt in a bad way at the end of it and it's a hella lot better than sitting around doing nothing. And, a friend upgraded to a fancy rowing machine, so he passed down his functional, but old school rowing machine. I got that on Monday and started using it today. (So did my husband, which is pretty awesome!)
Right now, those are all I have for goals. But, I don't want to go overboard with my goals. Just start journaling my food again. Keeping track. Get consistent with my easy workouts again. And blog at least once a week.
I can do this. I've done it before. I've done it a second time losing the baby weight. And I can do it again! And this time, I'm catching things at a 8 lb gain, rather than waiting until I hit 20 or 30 lbs before I start making changes.
