Yes, I know I have been lax again in my blogging. I think I was in a bad mindset. I had 2 weeks of gains, they were both less than a pound, but equaled a pound. I think that it was the not eating thing, but I managed to lose 2 pounds this week. Not quite sure how, but I am thankful for it. Today starts a new challenge for the next 8 weeks. My goal in the next 8 weeks is to lose 9.3 pounds, which is about 1.2 pounds per week. I know I can do it. I think this will definitely help me to focus on more active rest days on the weekends. I was reminded by a friend on another board about using the library as a source for the audiobooks again. I think that I may try that to help me get through my time on the machines at the gym. The other plan I have is to make sure that I prepare my salads for lunch this week (we got salad mix with Greenling this week) and I'm going to make use of it...aside from just having sandwiches. I think I am getting in a food rut and I need to get out of it. Meal planning is back in full force this week, along with planning my workouts. I am looking forward to some planned activity this week.
I am curious, do any of you have a meal plan rotation to keep you from getting in a food rut? I'm trying to figure out how that works. I know I have a tendency to get in a food rut and it makes things hard for my whole family because then I am tired of eating at home. The other thing I know I need to do is to enter all my recipes in my SparkPeople and in Weight Watchers so that I can make sure that I am tracking appropriately.
Okay, while the boys are gone, I think I will get in a workout...maybe some yoga since I've been fighting with some muscle spasms.
