As expected, my time spent on the scale this morning was a little rough.
Weight gain this week: +1.6 pounds
Current weight: 211.2 pounds
TOTAL weight loss: 24.6 pounds
Only one of the absolutely terrifying things that I thought might happen this week actually happened – I’m now under 25 pounds lost. This sucks. But it certainly isn’t the end of the world.
I’ve decided to make a list of things that I’m going to do this week to get back on track.
- Track everything. About halfway through the day on Wednesday this week, I just stopped tracking my food. I have seen this in the past. IT IS A BIG NO-NO, LIZ, YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THAT.
- Drink more water. Due to stress at work, I have been drinking a LOT of coffee, and not so much water. I need to fill that giant cup at my desk at least twice a day.
- PLAN my workouts. I only worked out twice this week, and that was not because I didn’t have the time. It was because I didn’t plan for it (and was seriously lacking energy).
- And most importantly: get more sleep. So much of my bad decisions and lack of planning came from a serious lack of sleep. I was cranky and ridiculously prone to tears (we’re talking weepy) and it was all due to the fact that I wasn’t sleeping well or nearly long enough.
These are the things I MUST change, and I will most likely let you know exactly how I’m doing as the week progresses. Blergh.
With that, I’ll leave you with a photo:
I’m not the biggest fan of Starbucks, but it’s really close to work and I love their Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Plus, they have really cute cups this time of year. Sending love to you all!!
