Still stuck

Friday, October 26, 2012

So my full-time contract ended this past Monday. The next day, my part-time contract jumped to full-time. I signed up for a class that will be six sessions, on Wednesday nights, starting Nov. 7.

I haven't quite figured out where to get the exercise in. My fiance and I went for a walk on Monday, but that's all I've done. I've discovered my foot, for all the trouble I've had with it this year, isn't fully healed yet, so I've gotten lazy. I'm still trying to eke out two-mile walks, but still way too slow for my taste.

And the gym? Haven't gotten back there just yet. Need to.

The eating last week, while the fiance was out of town, was a bit weird. The first two days I was stress eating. The rest of the week I didn't make it to the bottom of my SP calorie range. Net was that I lost a pound. However, also noticed on my scale that I've officially reached the "losing muscle mass" portion of weight loss--my visceral fat number went up and my muscle mass went down. I know my scale isn't completely accurate in these regards, but they're hlepful to keep track of my progress. And I'm especially interested in that visceral fat number, because it had been back in the healthy range (although at the top) and now by going up a point, I'm back to unhealthy.

No more. I can't keep letting this happen. My health is all I've got. I am also the one who has to make the time to commit to staying healthy.

I can say it until I'm blue in the face, but I have to take that extra step and make it happen.

Getting unstuck is possible. I just have to push myself out of the lazy zone I've created.
