Well how am I doing this week for the HYC? Not too shabby. I am down 2.2 from where I was last week which is pretty great. Considering I have been doing this weight loss thing for over a year and can stil drop 2 pounds is pretty amazing.
In regards to exercise, I was able to get in 4 days this week. Today I really did not feel like exercising but I made myself. I know my body needs it, and I have to fight the laziness, tiredness, and stress that I feel that makes me want to skip it. Things at work are so crazy lately and every day I tell myself I am going to leave at a decent time and go home and exercise. Unfortunately I never seem to leave at a normal time and end up wanting to go home and eat dinner and go to bed. Not a very fun life huh?!
So I have stopped writing down everything that I eat. I still plan my meals, but Im really focusing on what I know. And what I know is that it is important to eat a balanced meal. And I do. Its important to have those nutritious snacks. And so I do. I know what I need to do and need to eat, and Im happy to report that it really is becoming 2nd nature. I know it goes against advice to always write down everything you eat. And I agree..in the beginning it is essential. But I also feel for long term, you really need to have a 2nd nature about what goes in your mouth and whats important for you to eat. Im glad that after all this time, I feel ready to do this and that I truly can LIVE this and that it has become a part of me, not just a diet habit.
