Okay, so it's been a while. A good couple or three weeks.
I'm still working towards my weight loss goals.
had a long few months of problems....Knee injuries, a tumble down
stairs, stomach issues and a constant headache for months. I've had
tests and more tests and more tests and hopefully most of the issues
have been settled in one way or another.
So all thru
this I've still been eating thoughtfully....not totally healthfully,
mind you, but mindful of how often I have treaty type things and how
often I eat healthy food. Trying mostly to follow the 80/20 Plan. It's
kept me maintaining my weight, mostly, but not so much helping me along
my journey to weight LOSS.
Hubby and I have been on
holiday for the past 8 days and have two more days off too, so I've been
able to both get back in the swing of cooking and eating healthily and
at the same time having a treat now and again....and when we come off
holiday Tuesday morning it will be back to a stricter regime.
been doing my workouts in front of the TV while hubby does his
recording and live-streams for his YouTube and Twitch channels, and
today- when I reached the 44 second mark on my plank....one second off
from my goal..... My elbows just wouldn't let me go any further. I
realized then I needed a bit more softness to go any further in my
workouts....some of which require elbow and knee work and on a hardwood
floor that just won't be happening.
So I went online, did some
research and asked hubby to order me a 15mm thickness yoga mat on his
Amazon Prime account so I can have it tomorrow. No fuss, no muss.
also going to be eating salads from our local cafe near work....One, I
get a workout ie walk albeit a short one- and two I'll be eating
healthily and not be tempted by all the yummy things at the
supermarket... ie the Krispy Kreme display box at the entrance AND exit
of it. Damn them all.
Especially when this week they're coming out with a Nutella glazed one. Again....damn them.
Kremes are my absolute downfall. I can sit and eat a dozen....or two.
That started when I was expecting my first son. My ex would
disappear all weekend( starting of Friday nights) and my neighbor would come over and keep me
company while he was gone. First thing on Friday evenings we would get
in her car and go to the donuts shop and buy a dozen plain glazed....a
dozen blueberry filled, lemon filled and custard filled... and another
dozen bear claws, cinnamon buns and Cinnamon twister sticks.
get all the gubbins for burgers and hotdogs and we would swim in our
pool and shoot pool and watch movies all weekend when it was rainy out.
She made the loveliest hot dogs too- okay, I'm stopping that.
Anyway, so yes- We're back on the wagon again.
