It was bound to happen at some point. Me, a box of vanilla wafers and a hot bath. That'll fix most any problem when you're stressed, right? Ok, so it's not the *best* choice to make. April was a really hard month for me emotionally - I have to admit that I kinda lost my way there for a while - I was in some kind of funk and couldn't really figure out how to get out of it. There's no excuse for anything - but, it's time to step away from the vanilla wafers, lol. So, here we are. What now?
I've been stuck - on one of every person who's ever tried to lose weights worst nightmare - a plateau. Part of it is my fault - a box of vanilla wafers is bound to add a few pounds back, yes? ;-) But, I think a large part of it is my body's stress level - which does nothing for sleep, nothing for anxiety and nothing for weight loss except bad things. BUT - all isn't lost. School is coming to a close and I'm out of vanilla wafers!!!! Bootcamp is in full swing and that's good. And, there are other things on the horizon too (stay tuned!). What I need right now is some publicity - lol. You know, some admission of crap that's happened, some time to reflect on ll the crap that's happened and some time to look forward at what I can change instead of wondering why I haven't gotten to my goal weight yet. The last bit of weight is serious business - yeesh.
So - here's the new plan:
1. Stop dwelling on the things I can't change.
2.Stop beating myself up over it.
3. Eat the stuff I know I should be eating
4. get in my lifting time
5. work out at 100% all the time
6. put body flow back into my routine 3X/week
8.Log food and weight to monitor progress.
9.stop dwelling on the things I can't change.
So - hopefully I'll be here posting at least once a week. I have a whole list of things to talk about - things I've been through, things that can help others and things that will help me moving along on this crazy journey, and I hope you'll all be here to read (and maybe comment too) along the way. I'm feeling like me again, which feels good. I think that's really the first step of getting this going again and I'm super thankful I've finally arrived. (again).
