I commented on someone's blog recently that it is difficult to focus on two or more stressful events at one time, like weight loss and something else, and I just realized that I should have listened to myself! I've been eating so much. Often as soon as I finish eating something I'm looking around for the next thing to eat. And then I often eat it. Good thing that there isn't that much bad to eat around here. As I haven't been able to get to bed before 1, I'm dropping that goal for now.
It's only been a few weeks since my only child moved out. He was home last week and I went to see him off at the train station. I haven't done that before. It was hard not to cry as I watched the train pull out. Since then I've been eating. Well I went straight from the train station to the store and bought some ice cream. That was totally emotional eating! So I decided that for now I'm not going to worry at all about what I eat and just concentrate on working on the other goals I have. There's enough of them.
Next week's goals are:
- no eating after 23.00 (unless I'm hungry)
- eat at the kitchen table
- add an upper and lower stretch to the routines
A few years ago I cut out eating after my evening snack. It took almost five months before eating after the evening snack didn't pop in my mind or I didn't think ahead of time that what was there to eat later. Over the past year I've gone back to the extra eating and I want to stop! I forgot to tell about my first week of not eating after midnight. Nervous that I would get hungry later, I would eat something just before the deadline even if I didn't feel like I needed to eat anything. This past week went much better. I didn't eat out of fear.
So my Summer Slimmin' Challenge goal of not gaining weight didn't happen this week. I gained. 0.3 kg. But my other goal of drinking more water was a great success. But when does having to go to the bathroom so often stop though! Yesterday though wasn't very warm and it wasn't until evening when I realized that I hadn't drank anything since early afternoon but then I drank a lot to make up for it.
Today's question: How do you remember to drink your water?
