Woke up this morning super anxious for my weigh-in. Jumped on the scale and I couldn’t believe the number I saw!!!!! I got off waited for it to zero out, and then stepped on it again just to make sure I wasn’t going crazy. Different number. Higher number. Stand still number. Then just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke I waited for it to zero out again and then tried one last time. Another different number. Womp, womp. Batteries are going and I obviously can’t trust any 3 of those numbers it gave me (or I’m choosing not to, because in all honesty I would pick the first one which had me 4 pounds down, but I won’t).
To be fair to myself I will get new batteries this weekend and try again next Friday.
What HAS been working this past week
I tracked. I tracked like it was my job, and I think the pay off will be good (if I could ever get my sale to work!). You know that you’re doing a good job weighing and measuring your food when the top rack of your dishwasher is filled with measuring cups.
I decreased my exercise. I’m really trying to focus on my eating right now, so I’ve been doing a lot more walks, and a lot less time heavy cardio. Not to mention my knee is still hurting a bit and I don’t want to injure myself by doing my running program right now. I’ve been burning about 400 calories with exercise and trying to keep my calories 1200-1400. I’ve been doing this for the past few days, and I’m not getting those crazy hunger pangs like I’m going to die of starvation.
What I need to work on in June
Being more consistent with staying in my calorie range. This past week I have stayed on track for a whole 7 days. I tracked, I stayed within a reasonable goal of my calories, and I didn’t have a cheat-a-thon like I usually do after I weigh in. It is like a vicious cycle that starts after weigh in day. Friday-Sunday I just eat what I want. In order to lose weight I have to be consistent and eat healthy 7 days a week. Adhere to the 90/10 rule. The cupcakes this week for my birthday were definitely in the 10% and the rest of the week I was very in control of all my meals. If I am consistent, I will lose.
More vegetables. Since I started eating meat again my greens have gone down quite a bit. I gotta get those back!
Take my Thyroid pill everyday. Yes, I did go two whole weeks without my medication and after only taking it the last couple of days I feel like a new person. Without my pill I feel tired and rundown, not to mention my metabolism is slower than tar when I haven’t taken it.
I’m really trying to simplify my healthy lifestyle. Move more, stay within my calories, track, and then do it all over again the next day.
I will also be doing Photo a Day for June on Instagram. If you want to be friends my user name is carrieseals96. here is my photo for June 1st:
This is the view I look at in the morning when I’m eating breakfast.
