Let me explain

So in looking at my week of posts I realize you all must think I am crazy lol. I have had a very up and down week. Mainly because I am depressed and things with my husband haven't helped. And I have Erica and Avery and little sleep. Blah blah blah (as my 4 year old would say lol). Anyway, because of the depression I started walking. That is a good thing. And because I started walking I did want to see some changes in my weight, which didn't happen this week and that is ok. I am going to commit to a low carb life style. And to make it straight- when I went from strictly low calorie to low carb I was still doing low calorie. I was just taking away the breads, rice, pasta, potatoes, sugars, etc. I was removing the bad stuff which has terrible effects on me anyway. And the reason I was so disappointed was because I knew it should have jump started my weight loss again. But it didn't and I will accept that this is ok as well.
That all being said, I promise I will try not to be so up and down. I know that stress is bad for my weight loss and also for my mental well being. I will use the walks to lower my stress and not look at it as a weight loss only thing. I will also recommit to low carb eating within a low calorie range. This means lots of salad (which I am cool with) and veggies. I will need to watch the calories from meats because they tend to be on the high end. I will start drinking even more water and really try to cut out all diet cokes. And next week is the week I order Turbo Jam and then I will commit to exercising with those DVDs each day in addition to my walk. I say each day because I am not able to have days off in the beginning when I am starting an exercise routine. When I take the one day off I have some sort of mental switch flip and then I no longer feel committed to do anything the next day. LMAO! I know that must sound dumb but it is true. So this is my plan.
I would like to thank my friends again for sticking it out with me this week and keeping me strong when I was feeling weak. I really appreciate you girls!
