On monday at the end of week 7 I gained a pound. This brings me to a total weight loss of 3.2 pounds. I was pretty pissed off about this, and I really haven't been the same since. That week was bad. I didn't workout as much, I ate more than I was before and I was obviously stressed. This week isn't much better. I don't feel like I'm really sticking to my workout regimen. I feel like I keep cutting corners and thinking it's ok. Granted, I have been working out this week so far, and I'm going hiking tomorrow. My calorie burn is better, but my diet isn't as good. It's not that I'm not eating healthy, it's that I'm not eating very often, which results in bigger portion sizes at dinner, and slower metabolism. My schoolwork has been going slower, and my house isn't as clean as it used to be. I'm not sure if I like this new sleep schedule at all. I need to find a way to live with it and still be productive, I can't rely on my evenings to stay up and do work, I really need to hit the ground running in the morning, so I can relax in the evenings. That kind of thing is hard to change though.
I wanted to post after my weight gain just to say, I'm still here, I haven't given up. The physical therapist gave me the go ahead to start running and hiking. I want to mark tomorrow as a new start for me. I want to eat healthy, be neater, be more motivated and disciplined with schoolwork and workout in the mornings. I'll post again tomorrow with an update.
