Well I’m a month in and I’ve made no progress. I’ve been trying but dealing with a new born, feeling depressed, and being home constantly has been s struggle. I need to make goals and use this time that I am home to get some exercise. All I can do right now is walk but I can go walk to track with Emma in her stroller. I need to set goals that’s what got me through the first 100lbs was short and long term goals. I will have them set tomorrow and post them here. I keep saying I need to get back on track but after seeing my weight this morning I really need to. I know it will be easier once I go back to work since I won’t be home to snack constantly. I have 3 weeks of maternity leave left so I will just have to do my best until then.
I did get back on track today. I fasted until almost 2 today. I think I’m at least going to fast until noon everyday. I feel pretty good. I did want to snack a lot today but I decided to get up and clean instead. I got my office cleaned up a little bit and did some laundry. I didn’t get as much done as I wanted because my daughter didn’t want to sleep very much today. So I just got done what I could.
Food for the day:
I skipped breakfast.
For lunch I had 2 Turkey hotdogs, broccoli, and a string cheese. 19g carbs.
For dinner I had steak with hot sauce. 0g carbs.
For a snack I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 21g. Only over my goal by 1g. Not bad for today.
I feel pretty good today. I feel really bad that I cheated the past 2 days but I can’t change that. I can only move forward. I read an article online yesterday about a man that was only 2 years older than me and pretty close to my weight having a heart attack and passing away. It was really a slap in the face that I need to get on track and stay there. I am not at a healthy weight. Yes I lost 100lbs but I still have a long way to go before I get to where I need to be.
Eating was kind of a struggle today. My daughter was crying constantly today. She would not go to sleep at all so she was overly tired. I just wanted to stress eat because i was stressed. I also had to go pick up fast food for my husband because he is sick and didn’t want what I cooked for dinner. I was tempted to get something but I didn’t.
Food for the day:
For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.
For lunch I had ham and cheese roll ups with jalapenos. 6g carbs.
For dinner I had chicken and broccoli. 12g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 20g. Right at my goal for the day.
I know i didn’t drink enough water today. Tomorrow I will drink more.
Well i cheated for dinner yesterday and today. I let my emotions get the best of me. Cheating is not going to help me feel better in the long run. I know i need to stop or I’ll end up being over 400lbs again. Tomorrow I have to get back on track. I have got to get this post partum depression under control. I have to do this I just don’t know how.
