So January was definitely not a good month and neither has the beginning of February. I spent a big part of January being sick (not Covid) and miserable so I turned to comfort eating and ended up gaining a bunch of weight. I was disappointed about it but I know that I just need to turn things around and get right back to it. So then I started February on the right track and ended up having to take my 19 year old cat to the vet to be euthanized. It was awful and heartbreaking, and although I was able to restrain myself from overeating that particular day, the rest of the week didn’t go so well.
So here I am, the second week of February, doing my best to stay focused and turn things around. I am working a lot on my mindset and reminding myself of my goals for the year and I am determined to not only lose this weight, but also to improve my overall mindset and relationship with food. So yesterday was the Super Bowl and we made some yummy food for it, but today I am determined to be right back on track and stay on plan. My plan for today is to follow my meal plan that I have made and do at least 30 minutes of exercise. I also am going to make sure that I drink at least 80oz of water today.
Unfortunately, I also feel like I am getting sick again. It seems like in the winter months I am constantly sick and I am hoping that the next time I go see my doctor, that we can discuss this and maybe look into getting something done so this doesn’t happen so much. It seems like I pick up every virus that is going around, despite taking vitamins, zinc, etc. So although I am starting to feel run down, I am determined to make this a good week no matter what. I am not going to let the excuse of getting sick get in the way of that.
