Getting Back to Business

It's been awhile since I've posted. So here's the update. I've been yo-yo-ing with my weight lately. I made a pact with my weight watchers leader last week to track and have her go over my tracker. It was really really hard to make myself write everything down, but I did it and lost 2.8 pounds. Problem is that I haven't really stuck with it this week and I know the scale is going to be merciless this friday. But that's what next week is for.

I finally got onto the sub list for Portland and have been working on and off for about a week now. It's nice knowing that I am actually earning some money! I'll be able to buy fruits and vegetables again. Right now we're kind of having to live on what's cheap...so hamburgers and hot-dogs and fast food. Not super for diets I must say.

I've been pretty good with walking, but not as much as I should. Amber and I did the 2 mile track at Nike last week, and we've been trying to do it twice a week, but I keep having stuff come up and it's been difficult to make it work. It's nice at least to have the treadmills at our complex to walk on with it being rainy though. I really do need to make it more of a priority though. I should go right now! But I'm not going to because I need to sew myself a pair of bloomers for my halloween costume. I hate sewing. Boo! I will probably ignore my bloomers and start knitting on a scarf pattern I found that I really want to make instead!

Round 2 Day 16

I wish this post had as much positive enthusiasm as the last, but it's been kind of a difficult week. I woke up this morning with a mild headache feeling like I had a hangover. I couldn't think straight and  just felt worn out. I put in for a sub for the morning and went back to bed. After some cold brew and Tylenol I forced myself to teach my afternoon classes, but I'm tired and still feel the pressure on my skull.

Yesterday I woke up in a rage. Rage over the grocery shopping I spent the ENTIRE weekend trying to take care of. Rage over the food I couldn't eat to calm the rage. Rage over how I can't control anyone but myself. Rage over the stupidly over-positive encouraging crap in the day-to-day book I've been using. Shut up book! I'm mad and I want to be mad! I don't want to be told how I can fix it! I just want to be mad!

These seem to be the monologues that keep going around and around in my head.

Round 2 - Day 1

Happy New Year! I am so relieved to see 2017 come to a close. It was a long, tough, satisfying year and I am happy to be done. I think the two things that were the most life changing last year were moving into our new house and the first Whole30 I completed.

It's been four months since I finished my first Whole30. I remember my delightful barista, Kristina, saying "It's so hard, but so worth it." And I couldn't describe it better. I have tried so many things to lose weight and keep it off and nothing has ever permeated my consciousness like this has. I think about what I'm eating basically always. I haven't gained any of the weight back that I lost even though I haven't considered myself on a diet since September. I am also hyper-aware of how foods affect me.

December was sort of a free-fall. We went to Disneyland and I made the conscious decision to enjoy myself. Disneyland is already a sugar wonderland most of the year, but add in the Christmas them…
