I skipped my post last Thursday because I wasn't feeling up to it, so this one might stretch out a bit.
After my last post, which turned into a pit of a rant, I put on weight (Shocker.) But the big thing was, I was literally the heaviest I have ever been. Only by two pounds, but it brought me up into a new number that I have never seen on the scales. I weighed myself in Boots & spent the next hour wandering around town, trying not to cry.
I am trying to focus on my fitness & overall health rather than weight, & I know that muscle weighs more than fat. Visually, I don't really look like I've put on weight, & my clothes aren't any tighter. The main indicator for me is that my bra still fits. So I don't know why I'm getting so upset about a number on the scales.
I know that if I exercise (even just walking to college), I have more lee-way on what I eat & honestly I would rather relax and manage to have meals out, or a night in without fretting about it. I have a week off from college next week and I'll be working all week, leaving me with no time for snacks - I'm usually so wrecked that I hit the hay early too so no late night snacks! If I fit in a walk every day, I'll be happy & then I can come back to college with more structure & motivation.
How're you getting on with exercise/eating?
