As some of you know, this is a busy time for me. With work, school, supporting my husband etc.
I can say that my life goes from high to low but mostly high. Appart from my mother in-law starting her chemo for lung cancer.
- I have had my bi-yearly appointment with the oncologist, surgeon and radio-oncologist to confim I ham still cancer free
- I have been accepted to get my bachelor's degree in Information Technology Engineering
- I have passed the assessment tests in math and sciences so I don't have to go to school this summer
- we are most probably going on vacation to Cuba in June
- The medication I was given to stop the middle of the night heat waves is really working so I am sleeping a lot better
- I got my appointment with the plastic surgeon to see what can be done to fix them
- my heel is feeling better.
- Next weekend is a long weekend. Monday is a Holliday.
- I will be able to try my brand new lawnmower this weekend!
- I will have time to start the pool this weekend
so I think I am a lucky person.
I haven't stepped on a scale for weeks. but I have noticed that I am less willing to overeat now that I don't know how much I weight..... It got me thinking... And I realized that by weighting often (a few times a week) I was using that information to do what I shouldn't do.
For example. I would weight on Sunday morning then on Tuesday or Wednesday. I would see a loss sometimes of a few pounds. SO by Friday when the muffins appeard at work, I would rationalize it this way : well i have lost this week so I can afford to eat one...maybe 2... So between that and the : It's ok I still have the rest of the week to lose more, I have been playing yoyo for a few months now. And when I would see the scale go up, I'd get mad and eat!
As I have said on a previous blog, I am now affraid of getting on the scale. And that fright is helping me control what I eat. I'm not saying it makes me eat perfectly well, but I can say it is giving me some help to talk to that little demon that says... you can eat this... you'll lose it later.
So for that reason, I have decided to get on the scale, in the morning, every 1st of the month. I will test my theory and see what will happen.
As for exercise, since the heel is better I will start walking 1 distance a week then see how if feels. If it doesn't get worst, I will add one every week until I am back to my 17km a week. Plus, this weekend I will get the pool in usable condition so that I can start swimming as soon as possible. I should be able to burn a few calories in the pool.
