I’m not weighing myself right now, I’m not measuring myself either. With what I ate this weekend and today and the fact I have my period again. Nope, just not going to happen. This getting older and have more irregular periods, about every 20 days or a bit less makes gaining and losing interesting. Each period I gain 3-4 lbs, one week or so later I’m down that 3-4 lbs. But it’s hard to get past the hunger after I’ve eaten my way from one end of the cow to the other. Some times it’s easy to control the eating other times it’s just not possible, no matter how much restraint I have. I do try, honest I do but I just can’t help myself some times. Like this past weekend. For the race I was good, I knew to much and I’d puke but after that and a nap we had roast, carrots and potatoes then less then 30 minutes later I was eating peanut butter and toast. Then about an hour after that I had 3 chocolate covered graham cracker cookies. Yesterday was a bit better but I still snacked a good chunk of the afternoon. Today was much better but I’m starving, or at least my stomach is saying it’s hungry…my mind is finally telling it to shut up. It’s just not easy sometimes.
Tomorrow will be better, at least I’ll try my best. I do know that Brenda and I are going to go play tennis and on Wednesday and Thursday we are going to walk early morning and Saturday we’ll challenge ourselves to the walk between our homes, about 5 1/2 miles total.
I hope you all have a great week. Keep up the great work with your life style changes, with your diets, with taking care of yourselves.
I’ll be back later on and hopefully able to say I’m eating better, I exercised, I made a menu for the week. HOPEFULLY!!!
Take care my friends, God Bless!!!
