And... its all my fault. Lets keep it real, since coming back from New Orleans I have been on a complete nose-dive of bad choices. Oh such a slippery slope. I stopped logging all of my food in MyFitnessPal - so technically, I have no idea what calories or protein amounts I am consuming. Add in... water intake sucks! Which has effected my pooping cycles. Yeah... I've been a bad girl! And I even stopped with my vitamins... and of course I haven't started working out yet. Man I suck at this.
I got down to 187.2 lbs. about 2 weeks ago... and I've been going up/down within 2 lbs. since. Here is my weigh-in from this past Saturday.
I have decided I have to stop the madness or I will have wasted another shot at this weight loss thing and I want to keep pressing forward in reaching my 1st goal of being 157 lbs.
So first things first...... charging my FitBit back up. I will be wearing that again, all the time. I really need to work on getting more sleep time in - bad habit since the trip of staying up until midnight or after and then trying to recover my sleep by taking naps or doing nothing on the weekends. I hate the feeling of being tired.
Next step....... log all food. I need to. I have to make myself accountable, its the only way I will know what I am putting in my body (Duh!). Which means, also making better food choices... no more fast food - yes, I've had some McDonald's chicken nuggets or chicken tenders from Raising Canes or eating out at other restaurants. I may not each much... but I know ultimately, not good food choices. Grocery shopping weekly again - meal prepping again. Plus, I found out my kids really love cheese sticks - which I do too (one of my go-to's). And they love apple slices with peanut butter. So I can also get them eating good things - we've been eating pizza rolls, corn dogs or taquitos (bad!)
Water........ get in at least 8 glasses a day. I was so close and then I let it drop off. Plus I've been drinking wine lately - almost a glass a night. Not sure why either. Not that its bad, but I want to do better with my water and if I have room for wine later - okay. Lol.
And finally.... begin exercising. I'm taking Tracey's suggestion and look at the class schedule and actually schedule it into my own - it will remind me and well, then no more excuses on forgetting, etc. This Friday, I plan on paying for 4 personal trainer sessions too. First class starts tonight..... Zumba here I come! And they have another on Wednesday evenings.
So yeah............ thats whats going on. Wish me luck on getting back on track. I have 30 lbs. to get to my official weight goal. I'd like to be able to adjust that to lower... but its time for me to tackle that beast first.
