I haven’t been posting as much, but I’m still on plan. Well, for the most part. Last night I was starting to have a tough time and ended up eating 8 ritz crackers. Okay, that wasn’t bad. The old me would have kept going, but I stopped. And I counted the calories. They’re just not allowed in my diet plan, but I’m also not going to beat myself up.
The good news…the scale dropped a pound today! I needed that since I felt like I was struggling a bit last night. We have a wedding to go to tonight, so I have no idea what dinner will be. I’m guessing I’ll go over my calories, but I will stay on plan the rest of today. I need to enjoy life and do not want to feel deprived…or I’ll go completely overboard. I am making lifestyle changes, and weddings and other special events will still happen. I’ll enjoy the one meal, but be back on plan tomorrow.
I think I posted about my weird ankle pain here. It still comes and goes. Wednesday I had a great day for steps, hitting over 11,000 steps. Yesterday, my ankle was bothering me a lot, yet it didn’t on the day I got all the activity. I will pay more attention to this, but it seems to bother me more the day after a lot of steps. I do not think anything is physically wrong with my ankle, so could this be my brain telling me I don’t need to be active 2 days in a row?? I don’t know.
Overall, I am still feeling positive about everything. I’ve been eating really well and it feels great!
