Whew! This week was not an easy one, in my defense, I had a few things working against me. First my son has been ill this entire week and I haven’t been much sleep AT ALL. Add to that the fact that AF is on her way and hitting me with all kinds of anti-weightloss cravings (ex: A full bag of potato chips that I ate today) and my food week kinda sucked.
For some reason when AF is on her way I want everything starchy, salty and usually something
anything in the potato family. I haven’t been the best this week, but I pray I can get back to normal next week. I have blogged a little before about my emotional eating so this is nothing new, but honestly the food choices that I made this week were out of pure convenience. I saw something and I pretty much ate it I will do better next week.
It is seriously insane how all cylinders have to be ROCKIN in your life in order to create the perfect breeding ground for weightloss. Let’s check off my list of weightloss blunders this week shall we?
- Not enough sleep
- High Stress
- Poor Food choices
Overall, I don’t feel too terrible about this week because LIFE happens, all the time. The key is getting back on the horse and just being better!
