My Journey to a Healthy Me, Days 257-260

Well, I am up really early this morning. I got to bed on time last night, but woke up at 4 am. Wouldn’t you know it, my brain went into super active mode. I tried lying there in hopes of falling back to sleep. I have up after 1 1/2 hours.

Over the last few days, I have been trying to get into my new habits/goals. My Nerdfitness challenge starts today. I have struggled this week though.

Being sick

Now this last week, I have been a bit under the weather. It isn’t super flu or something though. Mostly like a head cold, or sinus congestion mixed with some weird stomach issues.

This has caused me to not sleep as well. I have also not had a very strong will power to get things done.

Even with my weird stomach pains, I still have been eating way to much. Just yesterday, I ate over 3000 calories. It’s almost like I have a tummy ache unless I fill it haha. Of course then, I have the ache anyway.

Self Sabotage

I have also been wondering how much of this week has been caused by self sabotage. I had my big realizations this week, of just how close I am to reaching some major weight loss goals for myself. So what do I do, I have multiple days of overeating.

09/10 MyFitnessPal – 1983 Calories, 14 net carbs
09/11 MyFitnessPal – 1900 Calories, 11 net carbs
09/12 MyFitnessPal – 1818 Calories, 10 net carbs
09/13 MyFitnessPal – 1854 Calories, 8 net carbs
09/14 MyFitnessPal – 2632 Calories, 14 net carbs
09/15 MyFitnessPal – 1719 Calories, 17 net carbs
09/16 MyFitnessPal – 3323 Calories, 15 net carbs

I haven’t been working out, or really doing much of anything this week for exercise. So really my target for days like that is more 1668-1787 calories. Only one day I hit that. 1862-1995 is about where I should be for my lightly active days.

So why do I do this. I’m not sure. Afraid of the change?

I have done similar in the past. Hell, I think that is what brought on my weight rebound in the past too.

This week

My plan is to hit this new Nerdfitness Challenge at full speed. I am still feeling whatever this cold junk is. I just have to battle through it. I also need to be aware that fat me is still at war with fit me. Fat me is trying to take sneaky tactics in the war, by making me want to over eat all the time. haha. Knowing is half the battle, right? Time to get this moving!
