I am now working towards 142lbs last time i weighed in i was at 149lbs (i did gain 2lbs over the last few days due to aunt flow...so im hoping that drops back off to 149 or i will be very upset LOL)
been keeping to my exercises...monday and tuesday went for 2 hour walk...today i did the elliptical cause we both had appts today...tomorrow will back to walking maybe....might not be able to with a chance for storms...so i might just be going to her house to do the elliptical and bike....then walking again friday
my new daily calorie goal is 1350...im gonna try this out for a week or two see how i do on this...if it doesn't work i'll bump it up to 1450 and see if that does any good
I got back on the wagon on monday. I'm not doing so good. I am using my calories and i seem to be eating a massive amount of food, but i feel hungry. tbh i think it is emotional hunger. I am pretty low atm and feeling a bit stressed out, so i keep telling myself that if hunger isnt the problem then food isnt the answer. I am very much an emotional eater and not giving into it is really tough. I have allocated calories for a low calorie hot chocolate with 150ml of semi skimmed milk and ive been looking forward to it all day!
I've also decided i'm going to start the 30 day shred tomorrow.
yeah emotional eating can be hard....finding something else to replace that is the hard part!! i know when i am down and out i like to eat too..but i try to escape doing my graphics stuff....helps a little....or i drink a lot of water and fillmy bellly up LOL
its hard to find the motivation....i know when i first started i just didnt want to do it...but i didnt want to see 162lbs anymore LOL that number pretty much devastated me!! i was getting close to what i weighed in high school...and i was NOT okay with that!!! but if you just start doing it and making it part of your daily routine and do NOT think of it as a diet....and try not to focus on the numbers on the scale...think of it as doing something good for yourself...getting healthy...the motivation will come i promise!!!
