2 Weeks and Counting

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Recently my eating and exercising habits have come to a really bumpy road. I went over my calorie range twice this week because I over ate. I have been doing a good job of keeping junk out of the house but my hubby still enjoys his binging. He has been losing a lot of weight recently because of his job and he eats a lot of whatever he pleases because he keeps losing. So when he wants me to pick him up some ice cream and chips at the store, I end up buying some for myself as well. I've recently decided that I need to remind myself why I am doing this and that fruit is actually just as sweet if not sweeter then ice cream. emoticon Eating fruit instead of ice cream and chips has actually been working really well these past two days as a substitute for a trigger. I know its working because I haven't raided his leftover ben and jerry's ice cream and lindtt chocolate bar haha. My weight has been going up and down a lot as well which I think may be normal I don't know. However, I haven't hit my starting weight of 255 since I started this which feels very good i've been going back and forth between 247 and 251.

I haven't been working out very much this last week as well I think I was losing some motivation but logging on here and reading success stories and blogs has once again inspired me to keep working out. Today I plan to do some stretching, a little bit of strength and a bike ride emoticon That's it for now thank you for reading my blog and helping to inspire me! emoticon
