Well, I learned one very valuable thing from last week. Processed foods are not my friends! I was going along smoothly, losing weight, and all of a sudden the scales went the other direction. So that's why the food log, right? Sure enough, processed lunch meats and probably too much cheese. That discouraged me. And I did fall off the wagon and ate too much of everything for a couple of days. Then I said to myself, "I thought last week was a learning week. Look at the tracker and see what it says." Sure enough. The gains were the days following all that sodium, preservatives, and who knows what else.
I did take away a couple of good habits from the week though. I am drinking way more water. I have even traded in my morning coffee for water. And I have tracked food. And I added in some exercise and stretching.
So now, I feel good and am headed the right direction again. I expect too much from myself at times. I want perfection!!! I guess it is a work in progress. I'll figure it out one of these days!!
