Confession, Productivity and the great plateau
Saturday, July 20, 2013
So, the confession is that I gave in to stress and ate like a drowning man wants air. I had opened up the mail, and got overwhelmed by the amount of bills, and thought, " i have room today, I'll have a piece of the leftover cheesecake." then I watched TV and ruminated on how I was going to try and pay the bills. I ate the rest of the cheesecake. Then I felt gross, went to bed and slept poorly. During the night, I ate four cold hotdogs and a handful of almonds. I finally gave up the pretense of sleep, and got up. I've been up since 5. I've been fairly productive, I did the dishes, planned next weeks menu ( with no grocery store event till payday),and sparked for a while. Spark coach was about the plateau. I know why my weight loss has stalled. Because i have nights like last night. I can undo a week's worth of deficit in one episode. I picked the two action steps to bust the plateau. 1) weigh, measure and track, staying within my new range. 2) make work outs, don't skip them. Work harder. Now I have to go be more productive for the day. I'm going to do the weeks laundry, go to the bank, go to the farmer's market and go to the gym.
