When Nanny was here, I told myself I would take the chance to indulge. Up until that point, I had quit sodas & sweet tea. I had rarely been drinking coffee. Fried foods were on my cheat list, which didn't happen very often. But I didn't want to spend her time here saying 'no'. The way I grew up eating is vastly different than how I eat now, but I still miss it sometimes.
So, while she was here, we enjoyed coffee on the porch every morning. We had sweet tea.
The few times we went out to eat, I had soda.
When I ran errands, leaving Adelei at home with her, I treated myself to Starbucks [this may or may not have happened every other day].
Because I was drinking coffee in the morning, I quit eating breakfast. We ate sandwiches pretty much every day at lunch even though I had been limiting my bread intake before her arrival.
I didn't even bother weighing myself, because I also didn't take the time to exercise when she was here.
Shame on me.
Shame on me.
The biggest problem with all of this? Is that I didn't stop when she left.
I was kind of in a funk.
I still wasn't eating breakfast, but lunch time also passed me by & I never felt hungry so I didn't eat.
I had to cook, and I knew that if I didn't eat dinner Aaron would be suspicious, so I ate a little every night.
What had gotten into me?
Whatever it was, I had a breakthrough. One morning last week, I stepped on the scale.
It was going in the wrong direction!
I was furious with myself. I decided right then, I needed/wanted to get back on track.
So that is what I'm doing. I've starting drinking my shakes again in the morning, going for walks with Adelei, planning my meals so I eat healthy. The first few days of detoxing are always the worst, but minus the caffeine headache, I'm doing well.
And hopefully soon I'll have a better update.
