5 February 2015

It is the 5th of Feb 2015!! Already. How if only that feeling could stay with me long enough to make a difference in me :(

I am regretful of the fact that I didn't post anything since Jan 15th, but atleast I had thoughts to do it the whole time. I spend most days working on the computer and do read some blogs, but for some reason putting up new posts doesn't make it to the top of my priority list often.

Anyway, here's an update...

Weighing in
I had planned to weigh in weekly here, but I've decided not to yet. My weight fluctuates madly from day to day. I think the foods I eat are to blame for water retention, etc, that cause me to weigh more on some days. So, my plan is to wait until I see a more stable curve to the weigh ins before posting. My daily weigh ins sometimes have 2 -4 pounds differences, I never know which to trust.

Working out
Yes! One area that I can celebrate!! I've never been one to shy away from exercise, but over the past couple of years I didn't the motivation to exercise like before, whoch is the main reason for the major weight gain that happened. I don't believe my eating changed much, so I can only blame not exercising for the gains.
My personal trainer has been working me haaaarrrddd!! I'm so glad for the investment and don't regret the money spent one bit. I work out multiple times that I would ever do on my own. So I will be keeping him for as long as possible. I also like the fact that there's a plan to follow rather than me rocking up to the gym and just jumping on the treadmill, cycle. elliptical and weight machines without a structured plan.

This is where my biggest struggle has always been and where it is still. Here's the thing...there are soooo many plans to follow out there!! And I find myself floundering between them. Somebody needs to make up my mind for me. I think if I had a chef and he just delivered the right meal for me at meal time I would fare well. I've thought to fast intermittently, to eat low fat, low carb, low calories, high fat low carb, metabolistic, etc.
I know ultimately I have to plan something I can sustain long term, but I am still struggling...that's all I can share right now.
