It’s Friday and it’s Halloween weekend! Woo-hoo! We got a “cold front” last night. If you can even call it that. Don’t get me wrong, it is nice outside but it is STILL 81 degrees! Ten months of summer, with two weeks of fall, followed by a month of winter, then another two weeks of spring… and repeat.
I should probably rejoice in the fact that I don’t need to wear jeans yet because I only have one or two pairs that fit. NOT GOOD! I must have at least eight other pairs of jeans but I can’t wear them yet.
I feel like I am stuck! For more than a month MFP has been telling me that if everyday were like today I would weigh about 180 in 5 weeks. It’s been more than 5 weeks and I am still stuck at around the same weight I was 5 weeks ago. I just don’t get it.
Maybe I am eating the wrong foods? My food journals are open on MFP, so you can be the judge of that. — My user name is under my Contact Me! page.
Maybe I am not working out enough? On my best week I workout four times, each about thirty minutes or so.
I am not trying to race anyone here. I am just trying to become a better version of myself. Which I think I have already come a long way since beginning this journey in August. I never ate this healthy or ever worked out.
I don’t know what (if anything) I am doing wrong and sometimes it gets very frustrating. I know something needs to give. And I will take any and all suggestions.
My weight loss journey is one of the few areas of my life that I feel I have become stuck in once place. Maybe it’s complacency?
Maybe I need to do a better job of blogging about it?
More pictures of my foods and more details of my workouts?
I am not giving up! There must be a way for me to lose weight! I just need to figure out what is going to work for me. There is no way I was meant to be like this forever. Right?
Since it is such a nice day I think I will go out for a little C25K action. I need to start making more progress with my running efforts.
**(And let me say that the fast food crap I consumed over the past week is NOT typical! I was away helping a friend move. It’s tough to eat right when you are on the go & in between kitchens that are not stocked. So please look beyond last week.)**
