To Step on the scale or not?

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

That is the question. I was focused on my family during this last week of my beloved dog's life. It wasn't until after, alone with my thoughts, that I went off the rails and pretty much binged on everything. Why do I binge? I don't know - escape I guess. Do I step on the scale and see the damage or give it a week to get back on track? My weigh-in day is coming up and I think it will be a game time decision. For now, I am going to get back to reading, logging, and getting back on my Spark plan. The rumor mill has me losing my job in a month so I had to put my gym activities on hold for now until I figure out finances and if/when I will land another job. I am strangely calm about it. I feel if I focus on nutrition and do workouts here - I am going to be ok. On a separate note - My coach texted and asked if I wanted to go for a walk with him and his family today - It will be nice to start back with a 3 miler. He has the most adorable twin boys and seeing them will make me smile. I had been helping his wife once a week with the twins since they were babies but haven't seen them since Covid-19. Goals for today - Eat within plan, 3 mile walk, read 1 motivating story and spend time tonight with my family.

    OH gosh, for sure such stress as you were under makes a person lack sleep = carb cravings = weight gain = the cycle of hunger and binging continues.

    One step @ a time. You can do this.

    HUGS my dear and my thoughts are with you. Grief can be gentle like a wave or like a tsunami sometimes.
