Lunch today at 3 p.m. because I was not prepare to feed myself.
Well, that weight is a surprise. Because I am all about full disclosure, I weighed in last Saturday at 195.4, which was .1 lbs less than the previous week's weigh-in. It wasn't that I wasn't proud of any loss or embarrassed by the minuscule loss, I was just not in the spirit of blogging about anything. I was lazy and irritable.
I am still going through a lot of stressors. They are the same stressors that I will have for a long time: 3 kids, Nana, and a full time job out of the home, while hubby is away for most of it. I am still in therapy, but sometimes a biweekly visit to chat for an hour isn't enough. But I don't have the time or the energy to do more visits.
These last few days were horrible. I ate so much chocolate that I could have had my own candy shop. And to have a loss is remarkable. While I am proud to keep losing weight, I wish I could contain my sugar addiction. I did so well the first month, but then I figured dark chocolate can't hurt. Darn you, Trader Joes and Aldi chocolates with your inexpensive price point.
I've had issues with constipation, it is not due to being Paleo/Primal. I am eating enough fiber with the salads, veggies and fruit. My issue is water. I have to keep drinking a lot of water throughout the day. I have a multitude of water bottles, but must force myself to refill and sip throughout the day.
Exercise was much better. Four days of exercise this week. I got up at 5 a.m. to workout. I didn't work out on Friday because my daughter has been waking up at 3 a.m. and calling me. I am a light sleeper and usually can't fall back to sleep within a quick time, so I am exhausted and irritable for the rest of the day.
My goal for the coming week:
- Drink water throughout the day.
- Exercise 5 times this week.
- Reduce chocolate consumption.
- Prepare my food in advance so I don't scramble to get something fixed. .
If you can eliminate one bad behavior when you are stressed, what is it?
