Don't have time to think about weight

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Lately, I have been feeling like the world is totally against me. I just can’t catch a break and focus on losing weight.

I woke up sick today. Nothing major, just a little cold. I feel chili and achy and my head is stuffy. Also have a little headache. On days like today, I really don’t want to think about “good for me” food and exercise. Instead of walking at the mall during my lunch break, I went to the mall and got a slice of pizza. Then I went to Walgreen's and got some candy. Even though pizza is thin crust veggie and candy is fat free, the calories added up quickly. I feel pretty guilty right now.

We (my family) are planning vacation right after school is done, first week of June. I would love to lose some weight. I have not bought a bathing suit yet because I keep hoping I can lose 10-15 lbs and fit into the ones I own. Every time I start walking and watching what I eat and start losing a little weight, something happens. I might get sick or get a migraine for several days and then I have to start all over again. I just can’t catch a break. I lose 3 lbs and gain 3 lbs and lose again and gain again. Ahhhh!!!!

Now, we also are doing some renovations at our house. We had a water pipe leaking for a while and water went into several rooms and damaged floors and carpets and walls. So, we are in the middle of big remodeling project and instead of me walking on treadmill at night, we are out shopping for things needed for the remodel (tile, faucets, etc). You would think we can just go to Home Depot and get everything we need in one trip and be done with it, but noooooo. My husband likes one thing, kids like something else, I like something else. It takes us days to agree on something.

I really don’t want a new bathing suit.

    Hang in there, you can do this! Things could get hard at times, but nothing bad lasts forever. Everything will settle down and you will get back on track. Sticking to healthy eating and exercise, even when not in pain is so tough and you are doing great! Slipping once in a while is not the end of the world :) And well done on walking during your lunch break! I can't bring myself to do it yet...

    Hang in there. Look at it this way: everything that is happening to you is happening for you. Seeing the good in a situation may increase your motivation. 😊
