Steady as She Goes

Well, I can't really complain too much about the state of the scale lately. I'm staying right in the 321 area, 321.4 today. Can't seem to break it, but then again my eating hasn't been the most stellar lately, either, so I do feel lucky.

I keep making these weight goals for myself (315, 315, 315... ha ha!), and I haven't been able to come close, so I think rather than focus so much on the numbers, I'm going to reset my focus on exercise and tracking food. Make sure I do both every single day, no matter what. Because really, my clothes are fitting better and I feel pretty good about things overall, and that is what is most important! Not to mention (ahem) that I've lost 15 pounds in a month and a half, and that is nothing to sneeze at for sure. Maybe my body (and my brain) is playing catch up?

This morning I dragged myself out of bed right at the alarm again, nice! I didn't feel so hot today, either, but went for a walk. Unlike yesterday, my body never really perked up. I told myself to just shoot for a 20-minute walk, as long as I did something. And that's pretty much how it went, 22 minutes total and just over a mile. It didn't feel like I was walking so slow, oh well! Just one of those days, I guess.

I did it. Good on me.

I'm aiming for a good eating day today, too. The last two days weren't so hot. For breakfast I am back to my yogurt/cereal/fruit combo and I picked myself up some fruit and a Kashi frozen meal for lunch. I just haven't been as prepared to eat well this week—the kitchen's been a mess, the coffers are not well stocked. It's much harder to do well when you are in a hurry and trying to just piece things together. That often ends up in, "Aw, screw it, let's just get take out." (or fast food) And you know the rest. That's what yesterday was like. McDonald's for breakfast, Burger King for lunch, pizza and wings for dinner. I mean, I made decent choices and ate OK portions for what I ate, but still: it's eating crap.

OK, well, today I have a pretty OK plan, though I do need to come up with something decent for dinner. Too bad it's raining; grilling out sounds awfully good! Back to the old drawing board...

  1. Good on you, indeed! Sometimes doing good is enough reward in and of itself. The rest will catch up and provide another boost when you need it!
