The last couple of weeks have been insanely busy. I’ve been consistently busy with work (which is great — no complaints!), and have been going back and forth between Greenville and Charlotte….so much so that I keep losing track of what day it is. It blurs together sometimes, being a remote worker. To make things more confusing, I’m off today for a paid holiday. Seriously, all day I’ve thought it was Saturday……sigh. Well, it’s nice to have an extra day to get my $#*! done, and find more time to relax and watch HBO Go until I fall asleep tonight. (PS – I am so in love with “Girls” right now. I’ve been majorly binge watching this week.)
I’ve also been under some stress….a lot of it. Stress paired with busy schedule and lots of driving = me making horrible dietary choices. I am jealous of people who lose their appetite when they are stressed or upset. I so wish I weren’t a stress eater. Alas, I am a little embarrassed to share what I’ve been eating (and drinking) for the last 2 weeks.
I read once that this month’s diet is next month’s body. If this is true, then I am definitely not going to be ready for swimsuit season when May rolls around. I used to tell myself that it all starts with my fork. Making consistently smart choices meal after meal adds up to a healthy diet, right? I will say that I’ve enjoyed my abnormally horrible diet this week. Lots of tasty food and drink.
It always feels great to whittle myself back down when I’ve gained a few pounds, and get focused on clean eating, fresh fruit and veggie juices, low-to-no-carb, and getting back to my regular exercise routine. I’m looking forward to being in a calmer place next week, to focus on getting back on track.
Really, this has been a difficult month, and I am a perfectionist. I realize that I am not obese. I’m trying not to be too hard on myself and just take it a day at a time…. chin up and moving forward!
