Food is so tasty. Food can be so difficult to enjoy in moderation!
I'm struggling with overeating these past few days more than usual. Not as in eating tons and tons of food willy-nilly, but just sticking to the range. I've eaten past the top of the range by a couple to several hundred calories a few times this week. I'm seeing the scale creeping up ever-so-slightly rather than down. I still need to eat dinner and I've almost hit the bottom of my suggested eating range already. It's tough to eat moderately after an overindulgent lunch when you're still hungry at dinnertime. I can bulk up the veggies and have smaller portions of the rest.
Luckily I've gotten my exercise motivation back! I did the step 2 workout again today, and since I knew what to expect it went much better than the first time. I still couldn't keep up with it entirely, I did the best I could, and didn't give up. Definitely getting back to noticing the subtle changes taking place, as I push a little harder than I did the time before. That's what keeps me coming back for more though, those little changes. Love them.
Since I felt like I've been doing poorly more than I've been doing well lately, I decided to look at my calendar where I've been logging my weigh-ins. I've lost 5 pounds over the last 3 or so weeks. That's progress, and I know I can keep going. So I will.
