The skies are blue. Temps have been perfect in the high 70s/low 80s with low humidity. I went for a quick run last night (okay, really a walk with jogging intervals, but that’s running in my book). And to top it off, I saw a new low on the scale this morning!!
I might move my official weigh-ins to Tuesday. This past Monday I was up 5 pounds, but I knew it wasn’t a true gain. By Tuesday, 4 of those pounds were gone. And today, Friday, it’s ALL gone plus another pound. So for my sanity, I am right now making the decision to move my official weigh-in to Tuesday.
I haven’t felt like I’ve been eating well at all. I haven’t been tracking my calories and definitely haven’t made the best choices. But apparently I’m not doing as bad as I thought since I hit a new low today! I need to get back to tracking though, or I will gradually make worse choices. Today I am back to drinking more water and cutting out the bread. I’ve eaten quite a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches the past week – eek! Hopefully I have that craving out of my system now.
Overall I’m feeling more positive again. And I had a mini-revelation this morning. It’s something I already knew, but kind of “re-discovered” it this morning.
Last night I got home from work and decided I would make some popcorn as a snack later that evening. I got busy working on some stuff around the house, and by the time I had time to sit down, it was bedtime. So no popcorn, which was fine since I really wasn’t hungry. This morning I remembered how when I stay busy, I don’t have the time or desire to snack endlessly. So I am back to working on my mini goals, which I have also been slacking on the past few weeks. I feel better physically, emotionally and mentally when I am productive and not eating too much. So really it’s a win-win.
I am out of my funk and moving on up! Or down, as the scale would say.
