The good news is I'm feeling way more in control of myself. The bad news is not enough.
Time of the month which means chocolate. Not a lot but some. I've got a ton of English chocolate in my freezer for such moments. Normally I'm NOT a chocolate eater (my demon is salty/cruchie things) but damn, do NOT get in my way when I'm craving it. Easy to get hurt.
Still eating too many carbo's and still not knowing what to do about it. Does anyone have any ideal what proteins I can eat that aren't too expensive. I mean, the price of beef? Holy Cow!
On the exercising front I'm still doing okay. My lower back is driving me insane but I figured out that I can do 20 min on the elliptical then 20 on the treadmill before I jump on the seated bike for the last 20. Believe me by then I'm wanting to curl up and cry. That last 20 minutes though I can do while seated and it's okay.
I've also added in weights. I know we lose muscle mass as we get older so that's the way to go. Again, just have to watch the back and neck.
I also have a "pulled" disc in my neck which is fun, fun, fun.
So, anyway, life goes on. Still in the same clothes, no big changes but I'm keeping on keeping on and that's the point. Long term and all.
