I didn’t fall too far down with Easter but I’ve not really recovered. I’m trying to get back on the 28 by Sam Wood band wagon but it’s appearing to be a struggle with my current lifestyle.
That lifestyle appears to be pasta for lunch and dinner and hot cross buns, still!!!! Why won’t they disappear from the shelves??
What I’ve noticed about myself in the last week is that I haven’t been driven to talk to you guys. Ahem! I wonder why? No accountability, no problem is where my brain appears to be at. So I’m here now letting you know I’m struggling and having a little lul in my weight loss. I’ll always be honest about my results at the end of the week so you’ll know full well when I’m not doing too well.
What I do have on my side is breastfeeding. It helps burn up some of the extra energy if I’m over eating and keeps my weight down but it doesn’t stop me from feeling yuck if I’m eating crap food. I’m also noticing I’m not getting away with as much now as when I first started feeding.
I’m finding that being attached to the program is keeping me from going off the rails but my lifestyle is not suited to such an overly prescribed program. It’s amazing in that it tells you exactly what to do and what to shop for but some of the meals don’t feed everyone so I have to work that out and a lot of the food Matisse won’t eat. It is creating extra work for me and the preparation time is time I don’t really have. I want to simplify things by keeping things flexible and follow basic rules like focus on fiber and protein and keep it light on carbs at night.
Next month is looking like I need to work on my relationship with exercise. My body is desperately needing a good ongoing workout.
