10/5/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Monday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 5. October 2012 19:44

I'm done guessing why I have gained five pounds steadily over the course of the year.  Whether it is from the Depo Lupron shots, stress, or not eating enough/too much of something I am finished making excuses.  I have always been an avid exerciser since I can remember.  When I started my master's program a year and a half ago I was on the computer from 4-9 every night and usually five to six hours Saturday or Sunday.  This literally left no time for working out.  At first I had a little bit of a freak session because I became addicted to working out six and seven days a week.  Finally, I came to the realization that I was only going to be able to fit in exercise once a week.  Teaching and going back to school were consuming me and there was little time for even my husband or dogs.  Luckily I continued to maintain my weight during this time because otherwise I think I really would have been stressed!  For the past year and a half it has become habit to just work out once a week.  Now it is evident that my body is used to my diet and in order to rev up my metabolism I have got to try something else.  I gained from this Saturday so I am now at 119.2 lbs.  Tonight I did a 35 minute workout with a mixture of power walking and running.  I am going to commit to doing this regime until Saturday and then reassess if my weight has changed at all and what I need to do for the weeks/months to come.  I have been putting it off; but if by Saturday I haven't seen even the slightest decrease in my weight - I am making an appointment my consultant for next Monday.  See?  Now all of you will also hold me accountable.  Wish me luck!

Weird question.... do you gain weight like the week before you start or during your periods? (That week before is when I get really bloated and uncomfortable) Smile

I haven't had a period since I was 17 or 18 because my endometriosis has been so bad.  My doc has had me on birth control continually since then.  But, my consultant at JC used to always ask when I had gained that week if it was before my period.  I will discuss in further detail on my blog for 10/6.  Thanks for the question!  Keep them coming, girlie!
