Stressful week

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I have been so busy that i have had a hard time trying to stay on track. My sister in-law graduated from college so I had that, her party, spending time with my mom, going to the Hanuman festival, fathers day and spending time with my brother who has been helping put out the fires here, stressing about family I have in the hospital, not to mention living my normal life between working and trying to spend what little time I have with my husband. I'm pooped! I have continued to eat healthy but the weight loss had stopped until this morning. I'm officially 379.8. I know that isn't a huge loss, but its smaller than I was yesterday.

I know that there are so many things that can effect weight loss, between stress and not enough sleep, I know I cant expect a huge loss. So after today....hopefully I finish a work project and I will be able to get some rest. I am trying to keep up with my diet and water intake. I also plan on getting some good sleep after this project and getting a fresh start on the weekend. I'm still not taking any medication, just supplementing what I don't get enough of in my diet.

ON a new note, my husband has officially decided that this weekend he will detox off sugar, caffeine and processed foods. There are a few things that are processed that he will be allowing him self like, chips ( with minimal ingredients, bread for sandwiches for work( while driving) and milk. He also has decided to be meatless 4-5 days a week. NOw when he told me this, I was quite shocked. We had had a huge fight about his health and how his family history should make him take better care of himself. He decided that he was 20 any more and couldn't just eat and drink whatever he wanted. Which is true.

So he will start this Friday. I'm helping him wean off caffeine all week and then he will detox this weekend with juicing and healthy eating. Its going to be tough though, because he hasnt been off caffeine since he was a teenager and he just turned 30. SO I know the headaches are really going to suck and that he is not going to be friendly this weekend. I do know that he will feel better at some point and that he will see the brighter side to things. I'm thankful that he is making changes and that I'm no longer on this journey alone here at home.

So here is to a less stressful and healthy step into the future.

    Having your husband do this with you will be such a huge thing!!! And what an amazing thing you've done to inspire your husband in that!

    Stressful weeks suck, and it's ok if the weight loss isn't exactly where you want it to be sometimes. When those weeks happen to me, I just tell myself that regardless of whether or not I'm working towards my goals, the time will pass anyway. A year from now, I'll wish that I'd worked as much as possible - even if every week doesn't turn out the way I hope!

    Hang in there! It seems to me like you've made some pretty huge changes these past few months and also like you've lost quite a bit of weight!

    Way to go with all your success - and don't forget the successes you've had, even when things get stressful!
