Day 90 - Plateau?

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I think I hit a plateau...

My routine got shaken up by picking up an extra 30 hours this week and another 30 hours for next week. I did 4 days of Curves which meant I had to get up 2 hours earlier than I normally do. I am literally exhausted! When I get exhausted, I tend to eat more carbs. Surprisingly, I have been within my range most days. Only one day did I go over by 500 calories and yesterday, I had salty popcorn at the movie theaters which possibly contributed to seeing a plateau.

At work today, I was so sleepy tired, I started craving the cookies and Cheetos that they keep locked up from the clients. I have a key... I got into the closet, stared at them, looked at the calorie content, and put them down. An hour later, I caved and got the Grandma's Chocolate Chip cookies snack. I made sure I calculated it in my food tracker. After I consumed it, I realized that it really didn't taste all that good.

When I got home from work, it was still nice out, but on the cool side. My husband had already eaten a pizza and saved none for me, which is fine. I don't like the kind he made. I ate a small meal and then ventured out to walk 3 miles. After my third mile, I developed a headache. May be due to being exhausted...and being chilled, it got cold with the sun setting!

I am going to bed now, have a great Sunday!

    Make sleep a priority. You alter yourself completely when you are running on no sleep or not enough sleep. Reevaluate your priorities. It happens to us all. You are a seasoned healthy person, you know what to do, just do it ;-) emoticon emoticon

    Deborah, Wow, you have come so far!! I am so glad you stuck to your goals in your time of exhaustion! You are doing everything that I wish I had started out and kept on doing! (I think we started around the same time?? Not sure...) I am glad I was able to meet you on here, your persistence is catchy.

    I haven't completed a day of tracking yet, but I pulled out my easy food trackers a few days ago. I guess bottom line is that I don't want to take the time to do it online. I get a little embarrassed of the amount of food I eat too. But I have been eating a lot more fruits and veggies. Anyway, Keep it up GIRL..... You are such an awesome inspiration!!!! Jen
