A topsy turvy week and my eating goes to pot! No excuses except that I didn’t plan and didn’t prepare and really didn’t care. I stand here 2 lbs heavier. I yo-yo these pounds over and over again. I am thankful that I have this blog to confess to so I regroup. I know I said I was going to before, but obviously I’m on a decline right now. I am in a funk! I even made a cake – what was I thinking?! And even had a couple of bites after I weighed in…now what kind of thinking is that? The kind that will throw me into a complete tailspin. I am overwhelmed! I need to step back and take things from the beginning again…again.
I am back into my still-tight but at least I can button them pants. I am an emotion eater it seems. So what can I do when things get me down, set me back, upset me to the core? Well, being Christian, I have to acknowledge the He is the way…but practically, what does that mean? I haven’t included my diet in my prayers…I wonder why I decide this is an area I don’t need Him. Why would I think I could handle it all on my own when it’s obvious time and time again I cannot. So in starting over, I will start with a daily prayer to help me in this area. To get to know me even better; that God would reveal to me the way to a healthier me. I think it’s an area I would rather just brush over but I think deep reflection is the only answer, since this circular trip I am taking isn’t the path I want to stay on.
I am heading to the treadmill to do a little walking (still congested so no running). If I do no other exercise I will get at minimum 30 minutes on the treadmill (or other location) every day . I have an extremely busy week, so even 30 min is going to be hard to get in. I know I should do more, but this is what I’m holding myself to.
I will have a shake every morning…so no special pumpkin french toast because I found it on pinterest and really want to try it. (yes I did last week). I will include fruits and veggies as my snacks every day. I will have a sensible meal for dinner – this might be harder than working out every day because, like I said before, it’s going to be a crazy week. I am looking for crockpot recipes to fill in my week planner so I will have no need to hit fast food (which I also did many times last week).
I will get going on the projects that are overwhelming me to the point of doing nothing. I will step back with them and make out a plan of action and take it day by day.
This is my plan for this week. Next week I hope to take it to the next level.
I have one area that I did succeed in…no candy! I have been tempted but I have said no! I think that’s kept my gain to only 2 lbs. So I sit at 173. I would sure love to see the 170’s disappear for good. May God help me through it!
