The big D word...
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
So the reason why my health has been on the backburner lately has been one word: divorce. It was my choice. And hopefully I made the best decision.
I'm excited over not having someone not to complain about my healthy food purchases. I recently found an older model fully functioning fitbit (since I lost my old one even though I thought I found it during the move). I've started just calorie counting and aiming for 10k steps when I work. I think this week I will push for 10k when I am off work. Which is hard. I feel like this is permission to fix me!
I haven't been hooping much. I haven't been doing much of anything related to wellness. After the ex had lost his job, I started to do intermittent fasting/5:2 which was going amazing. I think no matter what I decide health/food wise, I will stick to IF. I know it's time to start losing weight. Last week I started to have my right knee give out in the middle of a shift. Although surprisingly I only gained 8 pounds through the divorce (or at least the day I checked versus my memory).
Although I am kinda upset because I have hardly no access to our work exercise room since I work night shift. I might just start doing some walking DVDs in one of the dining rooms on my breaks or bring a hoop.
My goal this holiday season is to start developing those smart habits and not to gain anymore weight (236). I am hoping that I might be in the 220s by Christmas with how the scale is working. I'd really love that! Especially since I need a few non-Christmas scrubs to be ready to wear that fit. I'm already planning on buying a ticket to Kinetic tomorrow (I hope I get one). I want to be smaller by Kinetic time and other spring dates planned. I've already submitted my class application for Playthink Movement festival, too.
