I love the Bobbi method. Working in house, things get sloppy. I try to be as organized as I can, but being a new attorney without my own proclaimed method, I do fall prey to the unorganized ways of the company. I'll try to incorporate some of your tips and tricks! Keep your head up about low carb. It'll get there. Also, good luck on your daily bar study :)
Mandy- way to kick butt on your morning workout. That's fantastic you were able to run first thing in the morning, and push yourself at that.
I ate 85 calories more than Sparkpeople recommends yesterday. I ate all healthful food, with lots of fruits and vegetables, so I don't feel too badly about that. However, I did have a good cry.
Bobbi knows about my medical mystery- I literally cannot lose weight. I've tried about 8 different methods over the last 5 years or so, but the second half of 2012 was the most shocking weight gain of my life- 60 pounds! I'm 5'2ish, so that 60 pound gain in less than 6 months was basically gaining half of my body weight in a very small amount of time. I wasn't an food and exercise angel during this time, but by no means did my behavior warrant a 60 pound gain. (I got married, studied for the bar, moved back home with my husband into my mom's house, started my first job, and bought my first home. I had little time for exercise, and had to eat was available at my mom's)
So last night I just cried and cried. Weight loss (or the aspiration to actually achieve weight loss) is literally all I think about. I hate getting dressed everyday. I hate mirrors. I HATE scales (BTW I'm up 3 pounds since January 1st, when I started tracking my food and exercise).
I'm anxiously awaiting a couple of doctors appointments. I've gone to specialist after specialist, but on paper I'm extremely healthy because I live a healthy lifestyle. Low blood pressure, great lab work, etc. Something is medically off, and I'm sorry to wine about it so often, but it's starting to get me really depressed.
I'm making smart choices today. I'm trying to see the bright side. I hope you all have a happy day :)
