I am down a smidge more in weight. I weighed in this morning at 195.5 lbs. I am happy and giddy.
This week was a bit rough. I had PMS and my TOM and tons of cravings for chocolate, which I satisfied every night with a couple of pieces of dark chocolate. However, last night I did a bit of a chocolate binge having half a bar. And Trader Joe's definitely betrayed me by having dark chocolate bars for $1.59, so I bought two. No, I didn't rip into those, but they were bought in a "just-in-case-haze" while getting more coconut oil.
I am feeling well and definitely proud of having a loss. I worked out 5 times this week. I may workout today when I can steal away a bit of a break from the kids. But I have a ton of things to get to this weekend. Laundry, cleaning bathrooms, and all that lovely stuff.
Goals for the week:
- Eat grain free
- No sugar--yeah, Trader Joe's, let's see about those dark chocolate bars.
- Workout 5 times a week.
- Manage my home life so I can reduce the feelings of overwhelming-ness.
- Drink tons of water.
This week has been hard because I get to a point where I feel overwhelmed. Having a full time job out of the house keeps me extremely busy and then when I am home, I have limited time to do everything I need to do before wanting to crash. I know that the stress of my home life and work is contributing to my stress, which keeps a body inflamed and retaining fat. But I am doing pretty good. I am looking forward to getting to 190 lbs, which is my next goal.
How do you deal with stress?
