Time for a checkin!
I am happy to report that I am down 1.8 from where I was a week ago. True, I was up last week because of some bad things I had eaten the weekend before that weighin, and TOM was visiting. But its still a loss, and Im glad to start the week out so close to the 160s, that hopefully by the end of the week I will be there, and STAYING there.
I did well with the exercise too. I met and exceeded my goal of 1 time per week. I did yoga, pilates, and cardio, so Im really trying to get it in even with my horrible work schedule. Im sure its helping these little bits and pieces of pounds come off.
Its been hard to concentrate on eating AND exercise while working 12 hour days and feel stressed out and exhausted to the bone. I have been tempted like crazy lately by m&ms at work, easter candy, etc. I havent felt temptation like this in a while and it kind of sucks. I know its the stress talking, as in the past, I would have come home after one of these 12 hour days, eaten a large pizza, some doritos, chex mix, and had ice cream or popcorn. That was how I used to make myself feel better. Funny because I always felt even more miserable and just got fatter and fatter. I actually thought I deserved that food because I had a bad day. i didnt realize that I deserved much better. I do now, and while it would be so much easier to stop at the store and pick up some cadbury eggs and eat them, I know that I wouldnt feel any better, and I know that I can deal with this stress in another way that doesnt involve food.
