Spring is finally here! And with it, came a few extra pounds.
I found myself at my highest weight since two Christmases ago in February at 157. I then worked my way down to 154, only to spike back up to 158 after my grandpa passed on St. Patrick’s Day. I then lost two pounds, only to go through a baby shower celebration and Easter all in one weekend. My current weight is hovering around 161. This is horrifying to me.
It’s time to reset. Take things seriously and work at coming back down the scale. The healthy weight I sat at for almost a year was 145. I need to find my way back there and I need to start now.
I went to yoga this morning. The class was packed and lovely. I almost never get a chance to do yoga in the mornings since my schedule doesn’t allow for it, but that makes the experience so much better when I can squeeze in a practice.
My post yoga snack was broccoli and hummus with a nice, plump date for something sweet to finish.
Last night I went all out and had gluten free gnocchi from a local italian place that might be my favorite restaurant in Fishtown. It was a heavy meal but a heavenly one. I don’t regret it.
Today is baking gluten free soda bread with the sister and cooking up some bangers and mash for dinner. I’d love to saute up some cabbage but my sister can’t abide the smell. Oh well.
Happy St. Patrick’s day to y’all!
Thank you! I’m hoping to slowly make my way back to when I weighed 140 in December but with much more water intake, yoga and healthier eating habits. Good luck to you and your running journey and High five to progress!
I stepped on the scale this morning and found that I was down to 154 pounds. I’m happy that paying more attention to my eating and slowly cutting out the bad habits I’ve fallen into is paying off. I’m 3 pounds down from my high weight of 157 at the beginning of March.
Yay to progress and healthy eating!
