So it’s been a hot second since I’ve posted. 6 months plus? Sheesh!
I’m currently at about 50 pounds down. COVID and the quarantining thereof have been a bitch to deal with. For a while, the gyms were closed, which sucked hardcore. Nowhere to go, nothing to do…but eat. And I did. I’ve gained roughly 10 pounds back, 3 of which I’ve lost again, as of today. I was hoping this would be easy, but it’s not. When you are a food addict/emotional eater/whatever you want to call it, it’s hard. You can’t just stop eating. You can only modify your intake – the quantity and quality.
So I say to myself, “buck up, lil camper” — do what you gotta do. I’ve upped my protein intake, I drink so much water I have to pee every 15 minutes, and I’m working out more than ever. I go to the gym, I go for walks, and I have equipment I use at home.
That’s all I can do, really. Keep pushing forward and keep trying.
Meanwhile, my husband came down with the virus. That did not help my stress levels any. I tested negative. We quarantined. He’s fine now, and his symptoms were relatively mild, so he was lucky. I am grateful.
Until the next time, folks. Be safe, and wear a mask.
