- week


Big sigh of relief!  I noticed this week that I was starting to slip into bad habits again due to my schedule.  No time to make a lunch so I would grab a snack bag of chips from the snack bar, no time for breakfast, I'm not hungry so lets just skip, Off to the ball field so no time for dinner, I can just grab a nacho to share with the kids.   This is the thing that has been going on the past two weeks.  It is not as bad as I have written it but I can see that it could become that bad so I am stopping it now.  My motto is that life happens and cheats happen but when you notice them winning it is time to reevaluate your eating.   I have no idea how I lost 5 lbs this past week but I will take it.   My body does this though.  I will go a few weeks without any lose and then lose 3-5 pounds in a week so I guess it is just par for the course.   I am very close to 70lbs lost but I know that it could still be a few weeks before I see that but it is still nice.  Here is to a new week and a new number on the scale!

Week in evaluation:
Water: still doing pretty well on this and still running to the bathroom every hour.  At least if gets me away from my desk

Exercises: not much.  Just running around ball fields and shopping at this point but the last game was this week so I will be back on track with 3-4 workouts a week starting tonight.

Food- Sigh!  We have already addressed that issue and I am now moving on. 

Mental:  I am actually doing great mentally now that baseball is over.  I now have a few nights that I didn't have before that I can relax and take care of things.  It was pretty rough for the past month and I am looking forward to some me time.  I am having to work on eating slower since I still eat pretty fast and I know that it is just a habit/mental thing.  Stupid old habits!

I hope that everyone is enjoying summer.  Here in the south it has been in the 100 since the end may and I am not loving it!

  1. Good for you for recognizing the bad habits coming on and nipping them! I think that is a very big deal. Go you!

  2. You are doing so great! I will do the same (or I did back in the beginning) where I wouldn't lose anything for two or three weeks, and bam! Just keep doing what your doing, and be mindful of your eating. You'll be waving bye to that 70 before you know it!

  3. Seriously - recognizing is the first step to action. Great job with realizing that you have to make more time to treat yourself Healthfully.

    Congrats on the big loss! I do the exact same thing. I'll have a 0.2 or something then the next week bam. 3 lbs gone! I think it all averages out in the end.

  4. I do the same thing, I didn't lose for more than a month and then this week I've lost almost 6 lbs. Crazy. Glad we're both going back the right way, good job!

  5. I love seeing your progress and I am so happy for you!
