Picking up where I left off
Wednesday, April 21, 2021
I kind of fell off the wagon, so to speak, with my diet and exercise routine. I had started eating low carb and went from 196 to 180, which is great! I have been stuck there for a few weeks because I have been going through a hard time mentally and my focus has been off. I have not been myself lately. I was sometimes eating things that I should not eat and not exercising at all. The weirdest part of all of it was that I did not gain an ounce! I stayed at 180 the whole time I was going through my stressful period, and for that I am very very thankful! I truly don't know how I did not gain weight during this period, but I didn't. I finally told myself yesterday that my body was not always going to give me a chance, so I needed to start helping it out. I finally did a workout yesterday. It felt great! It felt like seeing an old friend. I was happy at the end of the day that I had did my exercise after such a long period of rest. Yesterday I was more mindful of my eating. I am still eating low carb, but I was trying to limit myself to eating just 3 times a day, instead of eating at random times like I was doing before. Like I said, it is amazing that I did not gain weight, but maybe it was because I was eating when I was hungry, even if it was more than 3 times a day, and I was sticking to low carb choices still. for the most part, with only the occasional "bad choice". I am picking up where I left off. I plan on continuing on my weigh loss journey. The break was fine and I am glad no damage was done. Now, time to get back to business.
