My last post was full of sunshine and roses…NOT. This week my eating has been
off track far
off track. Today, with only two days
left before weigh-in, I am still up 3 lbs for the week. Those are the facts and as Biz has posted:
Thanks for all the comments on my last post. As many of you reminded me, this will be a long journey and there is sure to be ups and downs. I’m still working on those three pounds, but this week is likely to end with an up/gain. Biz is right and she served up exactly the attitude adjustment I needed. Complaining and whining won’t get me anywhere and it definitely won’t help today or tomorrow. From now on, I will make every effort not to do that. I may fess up to a bad eating day or week, but I will own it and speak to how I plan to learn from the mistake and move on.
Despite whatever the scale says this coming Sunday, August is going to be a good month for me. Why? It’s going to be a good month, because I AM GOING TO MAKE IT A GOOD MONTH. My plan for the rest of the month is to start tracking my calories and exercising. I’m not sure what the right target is for me, but I will start with a range of 1500-1800 calories per day. I am convinced that my metabolism is way slow from the diabetes, thyroid and sedentary lifestyle. If I stick to this target and the weight is coming off too quickly (I wish) then I will adjust. As far as exercise, I am not sure what form it will be in, but it will be movement. I’ll start with a little and build up. Starting is better than not starting. This sounds like a good plan. Whether it’s good or not, I don’t know, but it’s a plan people.
In other news, the hard drive on my work laptop crashed yesterday. It actually started failing Tuesday afternoon. I took Wednesday off and then had to deal with it yesterday. My hard drive was replaced and I was able to recover most of my data. We have an automatic backup daily, but if MS Outlook is open during the backup any personal folders may not be backed up. I may have lost some emails, but that is yet to be determined. The frustrating part, is reloading all the software. I think I am about finished with most of the reloading/recovery, but time will tell. I still have most of my hair left, so I think I’ll be alright.
It’s Friday, in case you may have forgotten. Hope you have a nice evening and a super weekend!
