Another week has past, another week where I have no idea what I weigh! I must say, this no-scale experiment has gone better than expected, however I know that come tomorrow morning I'll want to hop on and take it for a spin. Don't worry, I won't. 1 more week until my weigh in, surely I can last.
The Good: My goals were to get back to routine and consistency in my workouts and eating. I have to say I achieved both. Yes, part of this was a function of being home and not on the road, but I also managed to stay (for the most part) pretty stress-free in relation to previous weeks. I did not over-commit myself and spread myself too thin. I got all 5 of 5 workouts in, and ate on-plan.
The Bad: There were a few instances of low carb ice cream mixed with natural peanut butter (it tastes like a Reeses peanut butter cup!) to curb some hormonal cravings, but it really wasn't THAT bad. I also had some honeycrisp apples (they're like crack) which are kind of carby, but calorie-wise, I'm calling them a healthy treat.
The Ugly: I still don't feel like I'm getting enough sleep. I *look* tired and my energy throughout the day isn't sustained. I wasn't stressed out, but am dealing with some insomnia, so I will continue focusing on remedying that.
Overall: Overall, I'll give this week a 8/10. I am pleased with my workouts and with my eating for the most part. No binges or crazy out of control anything. I'm just worried about my sleep. I did get a little bit caught up this weekend, so hopefully it will be better next week. All in all, I FEEL good about my body, and I have insane squishy fat going on right now, so maybe that means I'm losing something.
This Week's Plan: I will continue to focus on routine and consistency with my eating and exercise. I will not try to take on too many commitments this week, however there are a few things already on my calendar, plus hubs' birthday is Friday. Try to improve on sleep.
