...And Then That Happened...

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

I'm really bad at blogging.

There has been so much going on, I don't even know where to start. A lot of it I don't even want to get into, but it has been effecting my weight loss journey.

My dad is sick. I won't get into detail, and I don't expect sympathy, because he's not a good person. Its hard to try your best for someone, hoping that this could be a final turning point to get their life together, and they take it so far in the opposite direction. I had been so stressed over the weekend, that I barely ate anything (trust me, I was really good about tracking this weekend). I did lose a little weight though, so that's cool.

I'm actually a little surprised by my food reaction to this level of stress. Normally, I get sad, stressed, angry, or bored and I just eat, and eat, and eat. I found myself forcing myself to eat even my regular meals. I even bought myself some candy (thinking I'd want to binge), and its still sitting in my desk.

I did up my salad game. I used to have just lettuce and salad dressing, but I picked up some cucumbers, tomatoes, and wonton strips to add in there, just to give it a little bit extra.

I just ordered a day planner in order to track my mood when it comes to my food intake. My guess is that most of the time I'll be "bored" when I snack, but I want to know where my feelings and food meet up, because I think it will help me cut out things I don't really need (at least when I get back to a regular eating schedule).

I'm still walking as much as possible. Took it a bit easier as of late, but still getting as much as I could possibly do. Apparently, I already have 250 exercise minutes this month, which is pretty impressive, since I forgot my Fit Bit a day or two so far. I don't really track anything else other than what's tracked through the Fit Bit.

I don't know, I'm going to go have my super salad for the afternoon.

    Sorry about your dad. You have a connection to him either way, and it's tough. My father never was a good guy either, and was never there for us after my parents divorce, so I kind of understand where you're coming from... however, I have had many periods of time where I've had mixed feelings... Keep doing your best and move forward!

    Hang in there! Keep making small positive changes, not only for your weight, but for your overall health. You're still in the game and that's what counts!
