I haven't worked out, at all, not even once, since about July 20th. That's nearly 8 weeks. Egads, that's bad!
My weight loss is at an absolute standstill.
I have started back "clean eating" again. I'm tracking everything I eat on Weight Watcher's online tracking tool, I'm making sure I eat plenty of dark leafy green veggies. I'm going super low on the grains and minding my portions. After just a few days back on my game, I can feel a noticable difference. My son could tell you I'm less of a bee-otch also. That's a fact.
In fairness to me (it's my blog, I get to be fair to me!) we're in the midst of all-new schedules and adjusting to that. I used to get up at 5, eat protein, drink coffee, wake up, do laundry if I needed it that day, then start exercising at 5:45 until 7 am. Then I'd shower, get ready for work, drop my son off at elementary school by 8:30 and head to my work.
Now? He gets dropped off at 6:55 a.m. at the latest for middle school. I have lost a full 90 minutes of my morning! AND I'm taking a college class that requires 2 to 3 hours per day of reading/participating online, etc. Frankly, I'm drowning under the weight of things at the moment.
Ironically, I know that if I start exercising regularly, I will have more energy and clarity for dealing with everything. Such a catch 22. But as I discovered with the eating...I can come back around and psychoanalyze the "whys" later. For now, I just need to take action and do it. I'll report back as a comment on this post when I actually get up on that treadmill and walk!
