I'm not shocked to see a gain. I'm eating more calories and not moving very much. That combo is a guaranteed weight gain plan. Too bad that's not my plan, huh?
It's been a bit of a rough ride the last few weeks. It seems like I'm busy at work, busy at home, busy at church--just...busy. I'm not sleeping too well which adds to the feeling of needing a bit of down time-and to reward myself with a treat after a busy day. I keep reminding myself that after June 19 I'll have enforced relaxation, so I need to enjoy my current mobility.
My knee replacement surgery has been postponed--the MRI was blurry, so we had to do it again and lost a week of time for my knee to be 'built', so June 19 is the new date.
Last night is a slice of my recent month's packed schedule. After a full day of work, I had a 5:00 webinar, a 6:00 dinner with friends and an 8:00 hair appointment. I was 10 minutes late to dinner and had to leave early to not be late for my hair. By the time I got home, I needed an hour of unwinding to get to sleep. The unwinding included a mixture of cheese popcorn and kettle corn which I bought on my way home from the hair cut. At least I put some in bowl instead of just eating out of the bags.
I'll be in Australia for a bit over a week, so I've set some goals to help me stay focused while allowing for travel flexibility. I don't know what kind of food will be available, so I'm pre-planning based on some assumptions of an abundance of fruit and veggies.
1) I will eat small meals every 2-3 hours.
2) I will make green, leafy vegetables the main portion of my plate at lunch and dinner.
3) I will allow myself a small 1 inch cube of dessert when a gluten free option is available.
5) I will drink water.
6) I will say nice things to myself.
7) I will track my food in a journal.
I leave for Australia on Saturday, so I won't be posting until I return on May 27.
