I have no excuse...I ate poorly this last weekend. I made sausage gravy and biscuits on Sunday....and ate liberally (SO DAMN GOOD!). And Saturday I ate an untold number of little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls...and cookies...at a craft party. And I'm sure there was other food at some point. It wasn't pretty. So the gain is well deserved. At least I worked out on Saturday. Sunday...not so much.
I continue trying to get my exercise in. Also this week I purchased a "Active Link" thingy from WW because it was stupid cheap ($5 for the unit, $5 per month if you have eTools, which I already have for free through work), so now I'm using that...and now I'm realizing just how much activity I do NOT get during a work day. So...I'm now on a mission to go for a walk every couple of hours to change that. I LOVE bio-feedback. I'm sure I will move on to a fitbit or jawbone or something else soon because I know this little gadget isn't going to totally give me what I want...but for 5 bucks, I couldn't resist.
I've been down with some minor bug the last few days that gave me a low grade fever...so no exercise since Monday morning. I'm feeling better today. Hope to get a HIIT routine in after work tonight.
I'm going to attempt some major life changes in the coming weeks. Here we go:
- Break ambien dependency. Heaven help me.
- Achieve job satisfaction by trying to be the best at what I'm currently doing instead of longing to do something different.
- Help others in their weight loss efforts (I have a friend who is new to losing and really has no clue about calories, which BLOWS. MY. MIND. since I've been doing this since I was 12 and to me it is like breathing. Anyway...we are going to try to support each other in this process.
- Be more active with not only my daily hour of exercise, but also movement throughout the day.
I need to go focus on number 2 now...stop dinking around here. Later!
