#100LBWeightLossJourney – Struggles Abound
So, #100LBWeightLossJourney ‘s been on the back burner, like I said a few posts ago….I have been eating the worst crap lately..to the point where I’m scared to step on the scales because I think I’ve gained back all that I lost…blah…Yesterday I decided I was going to start with focusing on my eating and then hopefully by next week I would be back to doing my morning workouts….Well, I got up had a bottle and a half of water…and even made a fruit smoothie shake with chia seeds and flax seed in it…but…after I had done my morning shopping, I stopped at MacDonald’s to see about trying to get the last couple of Skylander toys that my little guy needed for the set and ended up buying a nugget meal for my lunch….at this point in the morning I felt like I was starving and needed food…whilst I know that I totally did NOT need anything at that point…a snack on hand would have been great…definitely need to try to start prepping snacks and having them ready to go for the following day so that when I have to run errands I have something with me so I am not tempted to buy something unhealthy. Problem is I keep saying what I need to do, but, actually DOING what I need to do is really hard for me to get done..stupid anxiety…simple tasks seem impossible…
I did do ONE healthy thing yesterday, and that was joining my little guy on his walk-a-thon for school. We walked about 2km. 🙂
Today we will be walking to a friend’s house that will be about 3km round trip. 🙂 And tomorrow there will be walking done for the Easter Eggstravaganza Hunt in Annapolis Royal. Hopefully the weather stays nice like it is right now.
Stress and health have been my biggest barriers as far as being able to maintain my journey successes….our car is getting worse and worse…our vacuum is broken…our finances aren’t great….family’s health isn’t great…..argh…I am feeling totally defeated lately…I am hoping to find a way to motivate myself to get up mornings….usually when it is light out it is easy for me, but for some reason I found it easier in the winter. Weird.
I have signed up to participate in a 5km walk/run for #DefeatDepression next month
You can support the cause by making a donation here: Help support the Defeat Depression Campaign
and also am doing a 5km in July to support Special Olympics…The Halifax police Chase
I really need to start doing some cardio……time to get organzied!

PS: I am starting to swish with oil…that’ll be another post though…..
