Last week wasn’t bad by any means. In fact, it was wonderful. My husband and I are on the same work schedule for the first time in 7 years! We were both home at the same time, we co-parented all week, we were just the best team and it was amazing. We also ate out a lot and my choices were not great at all therefore my low carb high fat lifestyle was failing a bit.
I gained weight. I am not up to my heaviest, but I still gained and that was a bummer. I would do pretty good at packing lunches that were low carb, but then it was back to school and of course there was birthdays and celebrations and cake. Right now my will power and motivation to not eat the cake is low because that scale is not moving quickly and I am an immediate results type of person…so I ate the cake…and the donuts…and the ice cream. You get it.
We had no meal plans and that severally stunted the progress and to top it off, everyone was getting used to a new schedule, we were tired and as is typical we are also overbooked. I threw in the towel last week and I am not happy with my choices. I will say that not all of them were bad. 95% of my lunches this week were low carb and filling and wonderful. I also continued my medications and I feel much better and my blood sugars were lower!
