Wow, I cannot believe how long its been since I’ve posted anything.
Update: I’ve moved, got my cats back from the shelter, had Christmas, one daughter became a teenager, celebrated New Years, and work became extremely busy busy busy!
I went off track w/ my food but have only gained 2 lbs. Right now I’m starting to track my food again and I’m trying to cut out sugar. I will also post more often to help me stay on track (again).
So once again I’m behind on my posts. It seems like a bad habit I need to break. Here is a quick follow-up. The week before Thanksgiving I lost 1.8 lbs. and I tracked all my food on Thanksgiving (which was much better than last year, although still too much). After that day I lost focus, got busy stopped tracking, and started picking like I used to do. Fortunately I’ve been so busy packing, moving boxes and running around with my kids that my daily steps jumped by at least 2,000 each day. This meant that instead of gaining back a bunch of weight I only went up .4 lbs. “whew!” For those following along, my total is 10.8 lbs.
I’m still in a kind of funk, but I do realize that if I don’t track all that I eat I will keep going up. You really have no idea how much you are putting in until you get precise about the food you eat. Since I’m moving this weekend it will be very busy again, but I’ve already ordered food for the house that is healthy and will help keep me on track.
OK I’m at a loss for anything else because I’m so frazzled about moving, and my bed frame is broken, clothes aren’t packed, etc. I’ll post again after the move! Stay on track everyone!
