Weekly weigh-in: October 15
On Monday, October 1, I weighed 185.8. On Monday, October 8, I weighed 184.6. Today it was 185.6. I am not surprised that I gained, because I had a rough end of the week. This is midterm for me, with lots of meetings and grades to turn in. I don't normally have a schedule like last week's.
It's not surprising. I ate more junky food and less good food. I exercised less days, doing only the intense workouts and skipping the restorative ones. I felt stressed and rushed, didn't do my self-care activities, and that made me feel even worse. I need to turn that cycle around.
My workouts for the week:
Monday: 15 minutes of running and 40-minutes of walking
Tuesday: 50-minute Spin class
Wednesday: No workout
Thursday: 40-minute Spin class
Friday: No workout
Saturday: No workout
Sunday: 25 minute walk
Successes: I didn't let my problems turn into an opportunity for self-attacking behaviors.
Opportunities for improvement: Stick with the behaviors I know help me. Keep logging my food no matter how busy I get or what I eat. Check in with SuperBetter to reward myself for good behaviors. Remember sleep and relaxation. Plan ahead.
