Last week: 351lbs
This week: 347lbs
This has been a crappy week.
Sure, there has been a weight loss and I am happy and amazed, but I feel like I’ve gotten way off track.
It started Sunday night when I went shopping for cucumbers and came back with them and a bag of frozen French fries, a can of gravy, a box of gluten-free crackers, and a bag of Pop Chips. What’s insane is that I was eating this stuff while I was juicing.
This week, I ordered out for takeout more times than I care to admit. Ugh. I was doing so great in January and hadn’t ordered out for three weeks. Then I talked myself into ordering once and it has become consistent again. It is going to stop. It’s such an expensive habit.
Honestly, thanks to all the green juice I’ve been drinking, when I eat anything takeout (which, these days is mostly Chinese food) within just a few minutes of eating it, it comes out the other end very fast and liquid-y (if you know what I mean).
When I look back on the week, mentally, I was so happy to have lost weight (and finally be out of the 350’s), I kept celebrating with food. I felt good and wanted to feel better. I’ve done this sort of thing before. If I want to continue losing weight without having weeks like this, this behavior has to stop.
Next week, it’s back to beans and rice and raw food.
I’ve gotten so used to juicing everything, that I can’t even remember the last time I actually chewed any fruits or veggies. This week though, I ate two pears and some Clementine oranges. I have some Asian pears I’m eager to eat as well. I hope this is the beginning of a new phase of eating a bit more rather than drinking so much.
Did I mention it was a crappy week?
My sleeping schedule has been thrown completely off track. Every day this week I felt like I was never fully rested and just didn’t have it in me to work out. Starting Sunday, I am getting my sleeping back under control. I’m also starting my 12-Week Workout Experiment.
