35 weeks down. It’s really difficult for me to believe it — I don’t know that I’ve ever kept track of time for this long (you know what I mean, right?). Maybe it’s just that I’ve never stuck with one thing for this long, though, of course, the 35 weeks have been filled with varying degrees of commitment.
But anyway – I’m getting back into things and my Lean Eating life is back moving in the right direction. I’m hitting the gym, pounding the pavement and putting down the donuts — not always easy, but I’m making better decisions today than I did yesterday.
Weight is down, measurements are stubbornly static. I’m not worried about it, though — that’ll come. These are the things that I don’t have control over. As long as I take care of what I do have control over — eating right, working out — these results will show up soon enough.
Nailed it! Schedule was a bit wonky because I got lazy on a few days, but I got everything in. So – one week down in my quest to get myself a dual monitor setup. It wasn’t as easy as I would have wanted it to be — some days required a whole lot of oomph to get me downstairs — but given some time, that should get better.
Still doing the 5 minute body scan every day. I enjoy it — kind of a way to check in with my body and emotions without attaching too much significance to it. Almost a detached overview of how the systems are functioning.
Did this two days this week, and for two days this week I didn’t snack after dinner. Which is kind of the point — when I’m eating at night there’s almost never a reason for it.
