Mentally Exhausting Week

Saturday, March 30, 2019

This week I've been feeling down on myself because I'm having issues controlling my unhealthy snacking habits. Thankfully I was able to once again kick energy drinks out of my day, but I've substituted it with tic tacs and altoids. They are pure sugar and nothing else so at the end of the day I'm coming down hard. Like almost falling asleep while driving and issues concentrating. That kind of hard and my best guess is due to the sugar rush and subsequent crash from the sugary mints. I'm working towards cutting them out too, but it's a process. I had some challenges at the gym on Monday. Ended up almost injuring myself and actually had to take a rest day on Thursday to try and prevent further damage. Due to gorging on altoids and skipping the gym that day, I was feeling like poop. Thankfully my tax return came in and I went shopping for new pants. Had I not gone shopping I probably would have gotten my butt to the gym and hurt it even more. Pleasant surprise though, I'm smaller than I've ever been, so despite all my failures all 92 lbs did not come back over the course of a week. I want to do one of those pictures where you wear your old pants to show case the difference...I was waiting until I reached goal weight, but maybe I should do it now so I can get rid of them already. Thoughts?

    You have transformed quickly, all your new pieces aren’t all linked, so you expend more energy just keeping it together doing normal life stuff. Slow down, plan out your meals, look at your macros, eat more fruit, over sleep more often, take up to 1 week off from working out, let your body catch up to your zoom, so it can heal.

    Do the photo now and then again when you hit your goal. Both will be motivating to you and others. Add protein to your diet to prevent the crashing. You don't need much...just a little bit. Pumpkin seeds are very high in protein. 1 tablespoon would probably help curve the munchies and nourish the body too. I get shelled ones from Trader Joes. Sunflower seeds might be another good option. Get away from that sugar ASAP!

    Sorry to hear this dear one. Sometimes when we leave one product, we replace it with another thinking it is better or more healthy. This happened ot me at bed time, I would eat a couple of Jolly Ranchers to subdue my hunger and then I thought I was eating too many, so I switched to the tiny DumDum suckers. Well I was gorging on those until I saw the calories were 25 each! LOL! SO now I'm back to Jolly Ranchers, which are about the same amount of calories but I tend to eat less of them. I guess my point is to just do the best you can every day. I know you do, but then you beat yourself up if it's not perfect! STOP IT! LOL! Maybe try to replace it with cucumber mint infused water or some other infused water that makes you happy.

    As for the pic, GO FOR IT NOW!!! You are close enough now I think it will be almost the same as if you wait to lose those last few pounds. We are all waiting with baited breath!

    As always, you are an inspiration to all and we are proud of your success! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
