For the past few weeks, my eating has not been great. I think a combination of factors have contributed. I worked out like a crazy person in October, thanks to my work fitness challenge. Once November rolled around, my body was tired, so while I've still been working out, I've definitely turned it down a notch. I also have been in a bit of mental "reward" mindset. That was fine for a few days, but we're several weeks past that. And, finally, the weather is colder here, and my mind/body has a bit of a "stock up for winter" mood and I've been eating mostly anything that sounds good.
I feel much better when I don't eat too much. I go to bed feeling comfortable, my clothes fit better, and of course, it helps me with my plans to lose a bit of weight.
So, my goal is to get back to regularly tracking my meals, which helps tremendously. My timing will be interesting, as my parents are arriving on Thursday. Having guests typically means more indulgence all around. I'll have to keep that in mind & budget accordingly.
I have a terrible habit of losing weight for the first 6-8 months of the year, and then gain in all back in the last few months. I'm determined not to do that in 2020!
How are you doing with your health this year? Any tips to recommend?
I have been eating like a crazy teenager with a high metabolism since last April. It is my way to deal with covid I am afraid.ReplyDelete
As someone who feeds two teenagers, I sympathize. :-) And, COVID has changed everything. I need to get better at being home all day & not eating like it's my job.Delete
I did so well the first part of stay at home, but now all back on, and winter coming. I am trying to do more soup at lunch-less cals and it is warm and filling.ReplyDelete
I like that idea. I typically eat salads for lunch, but I'm burned out after 8 months of salad every day. Soup might be a good optionDelete
I've been about 50/50 on my diet for various reasons but I may have to clean up my act soon! I can't tell if some of my symptoms are diet related or pregnancy related though.ReplyDelete
I always lose weight better Sept-Jan. I hate to go to bed feeling overfed!ReplyDelete
