WARNING!!! Summertime may be hazardous to your waistline!!
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
GAH!!! I finally weighed myself a few weeks ago after being off the wagon for a while. I have gained back 6.8 pounds!!! Yikes! I blame it all on you evil, evil summertime!!!!
The nights at the ballfields, the late bedtimes, the other people's kids coming to my house waaayyyy too early in the morning, the yumtastic adult beverages!!! Oh how you taunt me!!!
Since I have stepped on that scale 2 weeks ago I have been a little more aware of what I am stuffing in my mouth. I am also doing the Healthy Family Makeover Challenge, which is helping!!
I have also come to the conclusion that I need to just wait until school starts again to go back at this full force. I'm not quitting. I still plan on trying to eat healthy and drinking lots of water and checking in on SP. I just don't have the time or patience to track all of my food with a house full of kids running around. I also need to find a way to fit exercise back into my life. I just can't convince myself to get up early and work out before the kids get here. It is much easier to do during the school year!!! Ugh...
In other news, I had my bloodwork done and everything is good!! :-) Last time I had work done, my bad cholesterol was ok but my good cholesterol was bad. I also needed to be on thyroid meds. This time, both cholesterols are good and I don't need to be on the meds. As for the tiredness I had been experiencing, it seems to have passed...so yay me!
Oh, and when does school start??????
