Gained 2 pounds this week

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Well I gained the 2 pounds that I lost last week. I'm not surprised either. I just feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. I can't find any time to exercise and when I finally have me time it's at the very end of the night when I am exhausted. I guess I'm at the 'what's the point?' stage.

What's the point of continuously trying and failing. Just seems like nothing is working out. I plan on waking up earlier but then my son wakes up earlier. He goes to bed an hour later now too so I put him to bed around 9 and then I have to pick up the house and be in bed by 10 to wake up at 6 with him the next morning. I need to figure something out because it's really getting me down that I can't seem to fit in exercise.

I did eat breakfast today which is a change. I ate scrambled eggs and toast. I'm going to try to manage my eating, eat breakfast, and not lose my mind.

    Even small little victories are a good start! I do short (10 minute) fitness videos first thing in the morning and it feels great to get that checked off my to-do list at the start of the day. Maybe you could squeeze in something similar?

    The two pounds could be water weight. Our bodies are constantly adapting to different conditions. Sometimes we have a little extra salt. Sometimes our bodies are repairing themselves. Sometimes our hormones are having a party.

    Don't give up.

    Look less at the scale and concentrate on healthy habits that you can manage. With things being hectic, you may want to incorporate one healthy habit at a time. Physical changes that you can see may come more slowly, but they will come.
