too much too fast?

Monday, November 17, 2014

I started SP when I was going to be working or on call 24/7 for 23 straight days. Too many hours and too little sleep gave me a case of overwhelm! Catch up time? NO WAY!!!!! Fall down once, get up twice equals success. So I am not catching up; I am getting up.

I redid my goals page. I took out food tracking because I came to the conclusion that I am doing ok with that. Since I live alone what I have to eat is what I buy, and I am careful of what I buy, so that is pretty much a non-issue. I must start eating breakfast and snacking. I averaged about 900 calories a day for a 10 day period. Not nearly enough. To lose weight I must reset my metabolism by eating more. My problem was I would track all day and in the evening have too many calories left to eat to reach my "goal". OK, have made a note of that. Eat in the mornings, YUCK.

Exercise. Sweaty exercise. Feel winded when I am done exercise. Shaky muscle exercise. That is what I really need and that is what I am focused on for the next week. And a week at a time is what I am going to do.

Underwhelm is not necessarily a bad thing.

    Good for you!! Yes, sweaty hard exercise helps a lot. It will help with that "reset your metabolism" thing when you do it regularly. You can do it!

    Great evaluation of what you need to do. More of us need to do that.. me included.
