Face the Music

Monday, March 14, 2016

This morning, I decided to get on the scales and face the music. For the last few months, I just haven't been able to put 4 meals in a row together that follow my new life style. I moved the weight on the bar up over 250 and stepped on. The balance wasn't right and I moved the small weight up. Now, I was sure I hadn't gained 25 pounds since January, but I suppose I could have. Then I realized I was moving things the wrong way. I dropped it to even 250, and I realized, that is too much. I moved the big weight down a notch and slid the small weight to 245. Still too high. Tap, tap, tap. I went to 233. Surprise.

Now, don't get me wrong, I was up 2 since early January. But there were weeks when I was trying to get my act together, and I was gaining 2 a week I think.

So, what does this mean? I need to stop something. Maybe, I need to relax about it. When I cut back on the calories, I have a major mess two meals later. I'm going to try to average 500 / 500 / 800 for a while.

My walking is still bad. The right leg just is so slow in improving. So my to and from the bus stop is about all I manage. I gave up bell choir for a while because I can't stand for 45 minute rehearsals. I'm going to look at the sit down workouts. Something has to break loose.

The rest of you seem to recover so much better than I do. Pray for me!

    If possible meal plan, prepare ahead of time. It is so helpful, my son does this so he doesn't eat out at lunch time when at work. I meal plan in my head so I know what I'm gonna eat. Exercise when you can manage, work on one thing at a time :)
