Hello loves. Yep… I screwed up. It happens. You probably know or have read by now that I’m a stress eater. When the going gets tough…I want really unhealthy food. And I eat a lot of it. Plus…my willpower to resist treats drops significantly.
This past week was rough. I sort of mentioned it a couple weeks ago that something was up. My aunt lost her battle with cancer this past week. While I smile thinking of all the wonderful and funny moments we’ve had over the years, its still heartbreaking to lose a loved one. Especially when she was only 58. Times like this I reach for bad food. Chocolate, carbs, salty food, etc… I think its a coping mechanism.
That said. I gained a pound this week. I’m now 5 pounds heavier than I was two months ago. Ok…so yeah… its only 5 pounds but I’ve been on a slow and steady increase. Its a little depressing. However, I haven’t been working out much either. You know when you feel defeated? Seriously lack motivation? So thats where I am. Now – to be honest, I have continued my 30 day challenge every day, but anything beyond that seems like a big hurdle to me right now. I need to start over. Thursday. Today I’m going home after work for the funeral so I figure today and tomorrow are shot. However…Thursday. I need to move. Walk for a bit, yoga, something… anything.
I also need to be drinking more water. I can tell I haven’t been drinking as much so my goal this week – for the next few days is to drink a glass of water first thing when I get up every morning until Tuesday at least. I started today. I plan to continue. I need to drink a glass before I can eat or drink anything else. Plus… its secret trickery. Well not secret if you read up on water, but drinking a glass first thing will also help overeating at breakfast or any meal for that fact because our tummy fills up with the water that wouldn’t be there otherwise.
So – instead of sharing goals and stats – I’m ending this week here. Fingers crossed I can get some exercise in on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday. 🙂
