Jan 27, 2014
I've been dealing with the same 3 pounds now for a couple of months. Since the holiday actually. But it is due to my choices vs. a plateau. Part of it is the abundance of sweets around Christmas but part is due to stress eating and part just down right "I want sugar"! But I did a bit of shopping therapy this weekend and that helped get me back in the game. I find that when I can find something really nice to wear, that motivates me to want to fit more really nice things. I feel better when I am wearing nice clothes. May seem silly--I'm no different as a person--but it's the truth. I was able to find a really flattering cashmere sweater on sale, so that started it. More motivating than Bloomsday. I am just starting to get some walking in--tough when the weather is nasty--in preparation for that. I think I am going to need to stock up on some painkillers for my feet.
I'm still working out with the trainer. I can tell the difference, but I am still 'not strong.' I still can't lift both of my legs at the same time or bear up my body on my arms or do 'planks' for more than a few seconds at a time. None of which are crucial to my life right now, but are measures none the less. Maybe next year.
