These last 5 months or so have been tough to say the least. We were in Florida when our development closed all indoor facilities of March 13. No more gym???
We didn't really understand just how bad it would get but we battened down the hatches and practiced social distancing, ordered groceries through Instacart, picked up lunches and dinners several times/week at the club. I was worried that I'd gain weight being at home so much and happily that didn't happen.
I was walking ALOT and even our dog lost weight. There was about a 2 weeks period where my anxiety got the better of me and manifested in a dicey stomach so didn't want to eat much and amazingly enough didn't want to have any wine.
Actually lost a little weight and was well below my goal (140-142).
got home and was doing just fine until the last few weeks. Partly it's the heat. We walk Fletcher early enough that it starts out on the cool side but is hot by the time we get home. We go out for a fast walk and are dragging by the time we get back. I do get out for some walks that are more strolls because of the heat.
Don't think I'm eating more - at last per my trackers and wine intake about the time. But my weight is up to 142 - 143. that add'l pound is not something I want to see.
I don't know about everyone else, but the virus and the abysmal way our government is handling it (or not handing it as is the case) is making me nuts. Now the President is spouting more lies about treatments that have been debunked. The virus continues to spread and even though here in NY we have not only flattened the curve, but beating it down. That won't last since the virus doesn't respect borders.
I have to keep my eye on the ball and nevah, evah give up what I know works. Track my food, stick to a way of eating that is about 80% healthy, get my walks in, sleep, and keep the wine consumption down. next week we plan to start personal training and we'll see if that is OK. If we don't feel the club is safe, we'll stop.
Meanwhile I walk and do what I know will benefit my health. These couple of extra pounds will come off and I will never, never, ever give up. Confirmed I'm registered and I WILL VOTE! this might be the most important election ever!
