It’s that TOM again, every 16 days maximum and this time 14 days. You know that really screws up the scale, my psyche, my eating and so much more. Eating, well I will tell you that was way out of control the past two days and the scale shows it today. I’m up a little over 6 lbs. 4 of them are of course from my period but 2 from eating the world. THAT SUCKS!!!! I do admit that with my period also comes constipation so that will add a bit but still 6.2 lbs. What happened to 173.4?
This was yesterday.
This is today’s.
I think this is the first time I have had an increase like this since I started my life style change. This is terrible but expected but unacceptable. It’s a good thing I know what to do.
So with that I am also going to be joining in on Allan’s Phase 6. The last phase before maintenance. This Phase will be very different then any of the other ones. Today Allan had this to say about this Phase. It’s more of a “you know the rules, I’ve provided the plan, get your butt in gear and just do it” plan. No weekly weigh-in’s to Allan. But I will still be telling you because I need someone other then me to hold me accountable and that was what you’ve been doing since the beginning. I really don’t have far to go. 165 is my goal and now with the extra weight gain it’s 15 lbs instead of just 10. Oh well, it is what it is and I could get mad, stand on my head, beat myself up but where will it get me? No place at all. So today is the first day of the rest of my life and I will be doing the best I can, learn from this past week and move on.
Monday I have my lab work up so that means I am fasting until after 2:30 in the afternoon. WOW, that’s a long time with just water but also a great kick start to this week. Then after lab I will get a mammogram. I’ve been a little lax on that the past 3 years and that’s stupid. I need to go and take care of things. Then on the 25th is my physical. A complete one because like my mammogram it’s been 3 years and needs to be taken care of.
Oh I almost forgot. I got 4 days in on my quest for 20 days of bike riding. Each day a little bit further. 2, then 4 and now 5 miles. It’s still not a mileage breaker but that’s not the goal, the goal is to ride my bike for 20 days out of the 31.
Joss has been joining me on my bike rides too.
I am finding it a struggle to get to the gym, practice for my 5K out here on our road, ride my bike and hike the trails but as long as I am out there moving my butt I am not going to worry. The main thing I need to do is practice for my 5K so this week that will be main goal. Brenda and I are going to go walk the course on Tuesday and get a base line to work on and beat before our race on the 21st.
So there you have it, my screw up, my challenge and my goals for this up-coming week. Plus working 70+ hours, boy scouts, preschool, the vet and more it’ll be a busy and great week.
I hope you all have a great week. No matter if it’s with Allan and his phase 6 challenge, your own diet and exercise plan or whatever, I wish you the very best and that you get to the goals you’ve set for yourself. The best goal of all, to be happy, healthy and ready to take on the world.
Take care my friends and have a blessed weekend.
