In October last year, I achieved "overweight" on the BMI scale. I think I've inched back up to obese - but I'm avoiding the scale, so I'm not sure. I do know I've had to go up a clothing size.
What happened? Well, first it was the holidays - and that means I let the nutrition lapse. Then I got the flu and had to stop working out for a few weeks while my lungs recovered; then my mom got very sick, and I was stressed and overwhelmed and too busy to work out anyways. Then she got better, but I was out of the "eat healthy and exercise" habit by that time.
Then I realized: I'm putting on weight; I'm getting winded walking upstairs; my joints hurt. This is not a good thing.
So, here we go again: Back in the saddle. I've been working out haphazardly for about a month now - so I'm making a regular plan that I'll stick with. And I'm going to start tracking my nutrition again. That nutrition tracker is a great thing - I don't know why I let it lapse!
Right now - the scale matters, but the way I feel matters more. I need to rebuild the habit, so that's my focus.
I'll check back in a week and see how I'm doing.
