It’s been so incredibly hot this July, I’m trying to remember what cool/cold felt like! I’ve actually been getting out and about, despite the temps. Last weekend I went to the park and botanic garden. This weekend I walked around Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill (AFTER a long work out at the gym). And I’ve been sticking to my eating plan MUCH better. The heat and the TOM issues have been clouding things up (water retention wise — I’m perimenopausal, and my TOM is struggling to come, but fading away. Such a weird feeling, to know that I’m in the middle of crossing over with that).
I find it much easier sticking to the plan during the week than the weekends. I get a 3 day weekend next week, so I should easily be able to fit 2 gym visits. I need to get off this 10 lbs I’ve gained since I started my new job. I was a little shocked how easy it was for the weight to creep up on me like that. And I was thinking it was come off quickly (why I held that delusion, I can’t tell you). Eating out, going out, trips, holidays, kept me going up, up, up. As mortified as I was to see the 250s again, I kept squeeking back into the high 240’s by weigh in day, and would let that be enough. Now that I have less time to exercise, keeping to eating plan has become more crucial — even with all the extra walking and stair climbing the commute to the new job entails.
I’ll report in how next Friday’s weigh in goes.
