Week Three Low Carb - Thursday Check-In (Month One)

Week Three Low Carb Thursday Weigh-In:
02/16/2017:            -0.4 pounds
Total lost:                  33 pounds
Current Weight:      197 pounds

Okay, so the scale went down so I should be happy about that. It didn't go down by much but I lost a lot last week so I'm okay with this.

Today is Day 21 low carb and I'm down a total of 5.8 pounds in that time so I think that's pretty good! It's also 21 days of no cheat days and no binging! Woohoo!!

I have to admit that I did have a slightly difficult time buying groceries today because the bakery had cherry turnovers and those are, like, one of my favorite pastries and they haven't had them in over a year but I knew that if I bought them I not only would eat the entire box of four but I would also lose all control and binge like crazy so I walked away from them.

Maybe I am making some headway here!

Also, after a lot of back and forth in my head I decided to rejoin the gym. I'm just not accomplishing much at home right now (outside of the step challenge which is going awesome) and I really want to go to the gym. I am going to handle things a little differently this time though.

I have this bad habit of being very black and white... the last time I joined the gym my brain told me... if you join you can ONLY work out at the gym. You can't work out at home and you should stop your outdoor walks. Now, after that med change a couple of months ago and my brain chemistry actually behaving properly, I know that I can do the gym and I can work out at home and I can go on the long walks and I can take some classes at my trainer's new studio (barre class I am coming for you soon)!

I don't just have to do one thing just because I'm obsessive and that has been a really interesting way to look at things.

Plus, I'm saving a lot of money by fully giving up Dunkin Donuts (I've been making my own coffee and bringing breakfast and lunch for work) and now that I have a car to myself my schedule is way, way more open.

In any case, I'm going to continue with the low carb with no cheating or binging and keep it healthy, I'm going to keep going with the step challenge and I will, hopefully, be at the gym by this weekend!
