There isn’t much to report this week. I haven’t been terribly bad, but I haven’t been good. I love lost no weight, but I haven’t gained any either.
I tell people all the time, when I do lose weight, I will be a pro at maintaining it!
I know I am not trying hard enough. I let stress get to me. I let my cravings control me. I use the excuse that my ankle hurts to get out of working out. Or, the fact that my cousin has my Yoga DVD that I want to do. I have a ton of other workout DVD’s but they involve a lot of jumping around and other things that I honestly can not do at the moment.
Yes, my ankle is a good reason to not do some workouts, but not a good reason to avoid working out all together. I haven’t done a single push-up, sit-up, or squat in weeks. Unless you count the squats at work to put stuff on a shelf.
The only good news I have is that I have consistently drank 3 liters of water a day for almost 3 weeks now. Or close to it. It’s the first step to being a better me. I may be slow at getting everything going, but don’t they say that slow and easy wins the race?
I plan on doing better this week. I just have to get off my lazy butt. It’s not like I actually sit around all day. I am usually at work or in the kitchen baking. Or doing some other kind of craft. I don’t watch a lot of TV or play a lot of games. But I do tend to spend a lot of time at my computer, writing blog post, short stories, and building a group on DeviantArt. I do have a bad habit of getting lost in YouTube videos as well.
I have been taking my lunch to work every day and I have cut down on what I buy at work. I don’t buy as much candy or other junk food. I make sure to take enough snacks to get me through the day at work and I try to stay busy at work so I don’t think about food.
It’s really sad when you realize that your life basically revolves around food. I think about what I can’t have, what I want, what my body feels like it just needs. When I am stressed I eat…yes, I am a stress eater. I wish I was one of those people that used exercise to beat stress, but going to the gym is a pain in the butt and I often don’t have the proper time to go to the gym. Which is why I need to clean my room so I have all I need at home. I just have to find some way to beat stress while I am at work. That is where the biggest problem is.
