Not tracking has left me in a conundrum. And I know that the obvious solution is to start tracking again. But for whatever reason I am not starting back up. Anyway. I don't know that I am off the wagon folks, but I do get the feeling my feet are dragging along behind the wagon. I looked back at yesterday's menu and honestly, I don't see it as terrible in review, but all day yesterday, I felt like I was doing a terrible job eating. The only thing I would really question the quality of was the mini pizza I had for lunch. Everything else, stuff I ate while tracking religiously and none of it was in amounts I would question except maybe the two bowls of cereal I had for my snack last night, and that was Special K cereal. I think my real problem with not wanting to track is that I am under a great deal of stress here lately with all that I have going on at work, at school, around the house and activities in general here lately. I am not getting a great deal of me time and when I do get it, I am not enjoying it like I should I think. So I have kinda given up on tracking right now so that there is just one less thing for me to do. And I worry that the other side of that is that it allows me to step off the path when I am getting stressed and maybe indulge in a little comfort eating, even if it is a little different than it used to be. I mean really? Special K as a late night snack before would have made me belly laugh, and it was a big belly! But still yet, I think my diligence needs to increase so that even though I don't want to track, I can do better at my evening eating.
I decided to let myself sleep in today and not work out at all. I am dragging here lately and I think a day off is in order. I also decided Zyrtec is no longer an option. That is that. I don't like feeling groggy even if my allergies are 100% better. I would rather suffer and be alert. So last night I went back to generic Claritin and we will see how that works out for me. I am hoping that since I got rid of the infection in my respiratory system, I can keep the junk fought off with good allergy medicine taking routines.
I am anxious to see this Friday's weigh in. I am betting that if I see a gain, I will also see my urge to track return real quick like! haha.
