Here we go again
Wednesday, December 30, 2015
I've never slipped this badly for this long since my initial weight loss. Now I've packed on almost 25lb since my low and that appalls and upsets me. However, I know this year has been a stressful one and, while I fully acknowledge that I have made more bad eating choices and tracked less, it feels like the weight gain is greater than it should be. So I need to focus on more than just eating and exercise. Stress relief and sleep are critical too.
I'm doing a Mon-Sun week in between BLC rounds.
Food - eat in range 6/7 days.
Exercise - work out 6 days a week. Make 3 of those workouts either super intense or for an hour's duration.
Sleep - well, that one is somewhat beyond my control. After caregiving, I am now a v. light sleeper and am not sure how to achieve deeper, more restful sleep.
Stress - practice mindfulness. At least 15 mins per day of mindful activities and, when panic feels like it will swallow me, I intend to breath or stretch rather than eat.
Right now I'm afraid to look at the scale. I want my clothes to fit again though so I am just going to try and follow these goals until I can bear to get on the scale again (basically at the start of BLC 30).
So far this week:
M: In range, 38FM
T: In range, 30FM
W: Out of range, 65FM
