My first unprogressive weigh-in of 2011. That's a bit over a half-a pound increase from last Sunday.
There have been no binges. No cakes or pies. No pizza or lasagna. No burgers, cheese or otherwise. No booze. Yes, I've eaten well and on nearly all days at/near the 1200 mark.
But the loss of sleep really got to me. I only exercised 3 days out of 7. How immature is that? I could have fought the lethargy, but I caved. No fault but mine.
New week and even if the sleep bugaboos persist, there will be no slacking on the exercise. I will continue to fight the salt demon. Got no choice. My health is still priority one. It's not just about a number at the end of a challenge or a year or five years. The number, the goal weight, is part of a health overhaul. Eating better. Moving consistently. Yes, sleeping soundly. Learning to handle stress/anger better. Optimism. Achieving goals. It's all related to being a sounder, healthier, more agile/mobile/energetic/adaptive person.
Maintenance one day will be full of bobbles that one must learn to handle and strategize.So, this is one of those weeks. A gain of .8 is within normal fluctuations.
Eating at the level I am, should still show a loss.
I know I won't lose like I did at 260 or 240. I'm down 38 pounds from when I started this blog 6 months ago. That's about 350 to 400 fewer daily calories that I need from September 2010. That's nearly a pound's worth of calories a week...less that I burn. Cause I'm less weighty. :)
But this week was still messed up. Without overeating, with sore muscles from the days I did exercise, I should have seen some loss.
Well, all I can do is push past the obstacles (sleep, mainly, at the moment) and keep doing what needs to be done for good health.
I'm not derailed...just stalled. And really wanna go back to bed.....
Hoping your Sunday is blessed and full of fun....
