So how many times am I going to come back to SP swearing that THIS time it's DIFFERENT?
It's not different this time. I totally lost motivation over the summer and gained back everything I lost and then some. Part of it was because I was on progesterone for about a month in a failed bid to get pregnant, but I just kept gaining after that. It's been 100% emotional eating and total lack of exercise that's done me in.
On the personal front, new job is going great, kids are 2 now (!!), and life is generally good. I've outgrown some of my clothes, though, and I am just generally Not Fit (TM). I went to the gym with a coworker and a 20-minute HIIT routine nearly killed me. My body can't do the things it used to, and that bums me out. I know I can get back there, though.
I've started tracking, but I'm not limiting. Like, I'm not trying to eat within the range, I just want to see where my calories are going and see where I can make little changes. My big goals now are fitness.
So, HIIT 3x a week and mindful eating. And SP.
