Let’s start over, eh?

So, after my post yesterday, I realized that I am kind of slipping. And by kind of, I mean really slipping. It happened so gradually that I didn’t even notice it.

Few more carbs.

More alcohol.


Less exercise.

I realized that I have to stop letting myself do this again. Jump back on. I wasn’t doing BAD, but I wasn’t doing as good as I was. Here’s the plan.

I’m going to watch what I eat again. I did yesterday and came out good. Even turned down alcohol and a second helping of dinner (which I had been taking). I will be doing the chair exercises, regardless of how ridiculous I think I look (stupid anxiety and over-thinking). And I will completely rest my toe because I want it to get better faster. I have it taped up now. It still doesn’t like to be flat on the ground, so I’m going to keep it elevated for a while. I am entering recipes that are not in My Fitness Pal the way that I do them so that my calories are accurate. Doing that will make sure that I know where I actually am and am accountable for everything I eat (I only just discovered the recipe function where you enter in ingredients and it does the math for you…).

I need to lose more weight before my husband gets here in a month. And I want to lose another 30 lbs before I get back to him. I am pretty confident that I can do that. I’ve been losing an average of 7.5 lbs a month right now. I think I can lose another 30 by the end of July!

While I’m not really starting over, I am picking myself back up off the floor. Goal for the end of the month is going to be 5 lbs lost from yesterday’s weigh in. I believe that to be attainable.

Now, to put it in my calendar so I have a reminder to post about it at the end of this month. :D

    That sounds awesome! I am so happy that you didn’t let yourself get into a hate spiral. I will help you however I can, even if you need just a few encouraging words.

      Oh, don’t get me wrong… I am pretty much in a hate spiral. But the only way to get out of it is to do something about it. So that’s what I’m doing.

    What’s the motto when we’re working out? :)

    You’ve got it figured out. You slip up, you GET up. I’ve lost and found 80 pounds at least a couple of times. This time I plan to not ever find them again. I ended up gaining 10 or so in the last couple of months last year. I slipped up… and then I got up and got serious again. If I can do it, you can… broken pinky toe and all. =)
