Off the richter!
Friday, January 25, 2013
I had a great weight in this week, I actually waited which took more self-control than counting calories! I lost 3 lbs. according to one scale and 4 according to another either one is a great loss and if I can manage to lose 3-4lbs next week that would put me at my goal of 10 for the month of January! Last week I only lost about 1.5lbs which is a great loss to so I won’t be upset if that is what I accomplish next week it’s simply science but not exact to every one person the results vary sometimes and I am working on small weight training so I was actually not expecting to see much loss to start with. So hooray!
I’ve missed my workouts for two nights in a row which is killing me emotionally, getting all those endorphins in my system and then coming off of them for two days is making me feel super bummed out and emotional I guess that is my bodies way of showing me just how important exercise is to not only lose weight but to help me keep a grasp on my happiness without it I start to feel sad and depressed so I guess it’s my natural anti-depressant.
UPDATE on my family situation for those of you who read my conundrum the other day, You all gave great advice and support and I thank you so much for that! I had a light hearted chat with my mom about what I could do to help her and my dad be healthier. She said that she will try to handle at least ten minutes of exercise a day if I can make a healthy menu for them to follow, I agreed and have already found some awesome recipes for them, made a weekly meal plan and shopping list. The big break through is they are trying and looking forward to making some changes to improve their health.
We all have the one food that is a serious weakness to you, for me it’s tortilla chips or corn chips however you want to call them, I actually cannot even buy them to eat in moderation because when it comes to chips and salsa I have no self-control. I love other things like burgers as well but those are becoming easier to turn down however, chips and salsa this is not the case, I just love them so hard it hurts lol I literally have to empty the half bag of chips into the garbage as gross as it might but I was afraid if I didn’t dump the bag out and just through away the bag with chips in it I might talk myself into going after it later! Yikes! If that doesn’t scream food addict lol
I for sure need to work out tonight I feel like my emotions are off the Richter scale today!
