Well I am down .8 from Wed, and I am sitting so very close to the 160s! .9 and I am officially in the 160s. Hopefully I can manage to lose that this weekend.
I have felt really tempted by foods lately. I am not really sure why. Today I went to the grocery store after work, and wanted to walk down the Easter candy aisle. I love cadbury eggs, especially those mini chocolate ones. I really really wanted to just buy a bag and sit here and eat it. However, I was smart and avoided the aisle and kept on shopping. Then I bought some more cheese as I rescheduled the jewelry party with my friend for next friday. I had to buy more cheese since we consumed it all during our cheese/crackers/wine/salami fest. Buying it reminded me of that night, and I desperately wanted to consume cheese and crackers.
I think I am just stressed out. Work is just super busy and I have been working late almost every night. TOM is coming on and I think that is what is bringing on the chocolate cravings. I am also kind of depressed that my weight loss has slowed. Nothing to be depressed about...I lost since Wed, but I was sad to see the scale still say 170. The loss from Wed didnt even really register for me.
I appreciate all the words left about exercise. I had posted previously that even though its an excuse, I really just have a hard time getting it in with my schedule. If I wake up any earlier in the morning, I will be getting like 4 hours of sleep, which is not enough to go on for 12 hours a day. I was actually looking in to the possibility of doing something during my lunch, however the way I have been working, I am lucky enough to sit down and eat in the lunchroom. Lately I have been sitting there at my desk eating while working just so I can get home a decent time. Decent meaning, 7. I have been getting home and eating dinner around 8. That leaves 2 hours before I go to bed. Sure, I could exercise in that time. And I know that is what everyone would say to me. But I cannot even describe to you how I feel at that point. Exhausted, barely awake, and yet still running around planning my meal for the next day and making my lunch, paying bills, etc. All to collapse in bed and do it again the next day. Its rough. Its no excuse. So many of you have children and more responsibilities and still fit it in. I know I could if I wanted to. And while I do, and have every intent to do that, by the time I get home, I could care less. As long as I ate on track for the day, I feel happy with myself. As I mentioned before, I really just wanted to focus on my eating until I met my goal and then concentrate on exercise. However, at the rate I am losing, I think that is not going to work.
Definitely will be getting some exercise in tomorrow morning though. Its a start!
