Well, I hopped on the scale today and to my surprise it read 156.4 pounds. I *think* I weighed 162 last week. I know it was over 160 but can’t remember the actual number. This week the only changes I’ve made have been to cut out fast food. I know. What is the queen of “Clean” eating doing eating fast food? Well, I have no excuse. I think that there is a combination of things going on - the cold weather, early darkness and lack of consistency with my medication all contribute to my lackadasical approach to my exercise and eating. I know for many people the onslaught of winter brings on depression and if I’m not careful I can fall into a serious funk.
I am pretty sure that I have an handle on things now. I am being consistent with my meds and I’m not binge eating anymore. Most importantly I have an awareness about my situation and have decided to make a change. By doing this I am no longer going to engage in self-destructive behaviors (binge eating) but turn to healthy choices, even when I have the urge for some emotional eating.
I have still not gotten on a consistent exercise plan SO as soon as I finish typing this I am running to my family room, taking advantage of my son’s nap and starting my EA SPORTS Active 2 challenge. I’m ready to be focused, stay healthy and maintain my weight loss.
I’ve only been honest in this space and I continually admit that living a healthy lifestyle is not easy. There are going to be good days and bad but I am determined to have my good days outweigh the bad ones.
