View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
It has been a very busy few days. Weekend was busy with family activities and my work is extremely busy right now. Whew. It has been a few days since I have blogged and I really miss keeping the focus blogging and logging my food so I am just going to take the time to do it.
This week was OK. I did not faithfully blog all my food. there were a coulple of days where I logged some but not everything.
We had a bad snow storm this week and I worked 2 days from home. This was very challenging from me. When I work from home I have a hard time staying away from the kitchen. At work I am fine.....but at home I just get the munchies. When I do work from home I am very busy actually working......Next time I am going to have to be more disciplined.
Yesterday I logged everything and got a green check for the day and it did feel good. I had a great workout last night too. I am gettting stronger. I have been working with my personal trainer on doing real push-up (on the toes) and I am getting much better at it. Physically I am feeling much stronger so I know I am doing something good here.
I did finally step on the scale this morning, I was scared to all week. I was at 221! I guess I was not as bad as I thought. I just have to remember that taking the few minutes to blog and log to keep my focus is a better use of energy than just worrying about what I put in my mouth.
Actually all those trips to the kitchen while I was working from home could have been replaced with logging and blogging
Seems like a simple concept.....why would I make this more complicated. Now time to make this weight loss process less complicated.
All in all the past 5 weeks I have lost 7 pounds. At the new year I started at 228 and now am at 221. Of course I thought I would have lost more weight by now but if I keep doing what I have been doing....1 pound per week I will reach my goal this year and that would feel great!
Oh and thank you to Heidi for checking up on me. I really appreciate that, it really helped me re focus again!
