Although I am feeling better, the scale isn’t moving. I’ve had to suck it up and buy a bigger size pants just to be comfortable again, but I really don’t like having to buy bigger pants.
I am in no way as big as I used to be, but the anxiety of that thought sends me into sheer panic. I am really trying to break it down to manageable pieces. If I don’t I will lose this battle. I know this from past experiences.
So, my manageable pieces are: not eating any grains what so ever, especially since I’ve learned I have a very real allergy to them; not eating after 7p, although depending on my day I may stop eating sooner and finally, kicking my exercise up a notch.
The exercise part is a real battle, I get bored really fast. So I am trying to get at least 8k steps a day this week, go to the gym at least twice in the morning and twice after work. 🤞🤞🤞
I say all of that to say that I hope all this will improve my sleeping, Thank you menopause, because it’s all over the place which seems to feed my anxiety.
So talk to me Goose, how are you doing? How are you managing stress? Do you workout with a buddy?
Hi There, this is probably the wrong time of year to start watching what I eat, but “there’s no time like the present”, right? 🎄🎅🎉
Well heres my thoughts on that.
First, I seem to gravitate towards doing things the hard way. LOL Know anyone else like that? 😁
Second, (cliche alert!) Nothing Easy is Worth Doing! 💪
And least but not last, I’ve gained 20lbs and its freaking me out! 🙀
You see, I’ve had bariatric surgery and lost 123lbs as a result. To say this was a new lease on life is an understatement. That was 6 years ago.
I’ve gained weight for a couple reasons: 1. I got fooled into thinking I could eat anything I wanted; total LIE! and 2. Mother Nature is a Bitch; Hello Menopause! ⚖🥵
So I’ve come around to Intermittent Fasting (IF) and the Keto diet. I’ve done alot of reading and searching to find what can work with my unique situation. These 2 things allow me to change it up to fit my lifestyle.
Let me say right here, THIS is my personal journey. I am NOT being sponsored or gifted anything. I am just journaling and sharing my ups and downs.
I am going to do atleast a weekly check in post, so please feel free to join me.
