I gained .4 this week, so in the past two weeks I've gained almost 2 lbs - I'm still over 90 lbs gone (barely)! I'm not sure why I gained last week, but I know why I gained this week. Regardless, I need to change something. So what should I change?
I'm still making my salads, eggs and fruit up each week. But there's something missing, for some reason I'm way more hungry during the day. I get plenty of protein with my lunch - but it's after lunch. I can't just have a little snack, I need a snack and then another snack and then another snack. Then by the time I get home I want dinner. A normal sized dinner - and I'm out of (over) my points.
The one thing I haven't been doing is bringing my almonds. Maybe I need to bring those back into the mix. I should probably eat some yogurt too... my snacks have been within 2-4 points, but they are not always the best snacks to have like almond and yogurt. So that's what I'll do! No more sweet snacks during the day (I'm not gonna say no more sweet snacks period, because that won't work).
Also - another thing is that I finished up my 30 day work out with Shaun T - Hip Hop Abs on Sunday. ( I seriously recommend it. It was hard enough, but fun - so it didn't seem so hard.) I tend to get into this pattern though... once I finish a work out set - I slack off for a few days. So I started running again (I have a 5k in September I'm running) and thought I'd start right away. So I ran Sunday... and then didn't do anything Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. NOT.LIKE.ME. But I needed a break. I did run today - so that's good and I'll run again either tomorrow or Saturday. But I will need to work in additional activity - so back to water aerobics tonight!
I can tell you this:
- I promise that I will figure it out.
- I promise I'm not giving up.
- I promise that I'm still here to support you and myself.
- I promise I will keep going.
- I promise to give it all I've got!!
I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After.
