Hello all. As you can tell I haven’t been in much of a blogging mood. I’ve had a lot on my mind and sitting still was not working for me. 🙂 After much thought, I’ve decided to do a weight loss/healthy balance update weekly instead of monthly. I think it will be better for me to share more often…help me stay on track…accountable even. So here is my first update!
My first set of goals/plans were:
My FIRST goal: 25 pounds.
My Plan: Back to basics. Track my food and exercise. Stay in my calorie range. Drink my water. Eat breakfast. Practice yoga and meditation. Walk.
Let’s look at what I did right first….
I did get back to basics. I did eat breakfast all but one day because…well…stress. I did drink my water. I did meditate.
and now on to the things I didn’t do so right.
I did not walk (ya know, more than when the skill was necessary). I did not do yoga at all. I did not track.
I’m pretty sure my calorie range was well within, but I don’t know that for sure because I didn’t track.
Pounds lost: 4
As I said, I was extremely stressed out for more than half of my first week. BUT I did not use food as a form of comfort at all. No grazing…binge eating…or even indulging.
I feel pretty proud of myself for that.
New Week Goals and Plan:
First over all goal: lose 25 pounds (21 to go)
Short term goal: Practice Yoga 4 times this week.
Plan: Stick with the basics. Eat Breakfast. Drink my water. Meditate. Yoga. Walk if weather allows. Track and stay within calorie range. Focus on portions!
It’s all about choices really and I feel that I made the best possible choice in each moment this week. I was stressed out and when I’m stressed I normally eat more. I fall back on comfort foods or even booze. This time, to be fair, I was so stressed that I lost my appetite. So for a couple of days I ate to live not the other way around. 😉 I feel good about navigating through something stressful in a very non sabotaging way. ❤
Are you trying to be healthier? To find a balance? How’s it going for you?
