Casey vs. Blue Bell
About 3-4 weeks ago I had a really terrible week. I was in awful pain an I pretty much layed in bed all that week. Basically I had a little pitty party for myself. I lost 4 lbs that week, because I pretty much didn't eat anything. When I got to feeling better the next week, I somehow stopped working out and started eating lots of carbs after work. Now mind you I have given up alcohol, ciggarettes, caffiene, chocolate, spicy foods, sodas, carbonation, artificial sweeteners. Basically I'm a nun. I've even given up shopping, as I realized I was using shopping to make me feel better. So I find myself craving carbs like you would not believe. My biggest enemy right now is blue bell ice cream of the homemade vanilla variety. It's a love hate relationship. I love him my scale hates him. I don't want to break up forever with Mr. Blue Bell but I know I've got to stop buying a pint after work or before you know it all that hard work to lose almost 25 lbs so far will go down the drain. It was this time exactly last year that I started slacking and before you know it I regained the weight I had lost an then some. PCOS is tricky that way - very hard to lose weight very easy to gain weight. It's not fair but crying about it won't change it (I tried that) so you just have to deal with it. So the first thing I need to do is set a limit. I think me and Mr Bluebell should only get together once a week maybe twice, and I think I need to quit sleeping in and get off my grumpy butt and walk in the mornings like I had been doing. Now is the moment. I have to get back on track before I start going backwards again. One day at a time.
