Sorry I’ve been MIA for a bit. I’ve made it through the first two weeks at my new job and haven’t been as stressed lately. I still feel that I’m not doing so well on the eating front, however I have still been tracking calories and technically I’ve going over the allotted amount, however I have been maintaining my current weight for many weeks now so I suppose that is something I should be happy about. It’s not my ideal weight and it’s about 20 pounds over my goal weight, however I’m holding steady. Maybe my body is just comfortable at this weight and I shouldn’t push it. I don’t feel that I have the strength, dedication or energy to go back on the SlimGenics plan at this point, but maybe someday in the future because I know that it works.
Right now I’m trying to focus on staying less stressed. I have started making some meal plans, which helps my stress when planning meals and especially with grocery shopping. I go around the kitchen and make a list of things I already have here and then just buy other things to go along with them to make a meal. That way I’m also using up the things I already have in the kitchen.
I’ve started thinking about wanting to move more too, but haven’t quite gotten a plan in order besides I have been using the stairs at work now almost everyday multiple times. It’s still a barrier for me to think about working out so maybe I’ll focus on that at another time.
I’m looking forward to a fun weekend too! So, that’s another positive thing!
