Ya’ll…I have a serious problem. My pants are tight. I am stressed. I am so busy I don’t have any “ME” time. I have been eating on the run and NOT counting points. My workouts have been few and far between.
My pants are tight.
The clothes that I wore just a few weeks ago are now uncomfortable. Here I am the first day of school:
That top I won’t even try on right now because I know the muffin top will be out of control.
Those pants, yes, the ones in the picture. I wore those today. They were tight.
I have weighed in twice since I last shared with you but there was not time to share the results with you so I haven’t. I gained. I know I gained around 4 pounds a few weeks ago and I didn’t look at how much I gained last week. I am thinking around 3 or so. That makes a total of a gain of 7 pounds in just a month and a half since school started.
I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all. However, I like ice cream and eating fast and not thinking too hard about what I am eating.
But, I have a choice to make. I can either get my head in the game or I can gain weight slowly until I am back up to 200 pounds. Right now, I am fully back in the 180’s and I don’t like it at all!
I think what I need to do is make a weekly goal for myself. Take things one week at a time and focus on one thing that I am struggling with.
For this week, I am going to only eat fruit or a snack I bring to work from home from 1:20-2:05 p.m.. This is my planning time at school. This is the time where I want chocolate or something sweet. I think if I can make it past this “chocolate hour,” I think I will be ok. I have been doing great for breakfast and lunch and then this hour hits and I am just wanting something sweet. I cannot get into that routine so I think I need to nip it in the bud now.
I want next week’s weigh in to be a good one. A loss. I don’t care how big of a loss, I just want a loss. I want to be headed in the right direction. Right now, I am on a downward slippery slope in the WRONG direction and I need to get things turned around.
How are all of you? I feel like it has been forever since I checked in and that is NEVER a good sign!
Have a great week. Make one goal that you can achieve this week to feel successful! Share it with us!
