The last week has been tumultuous at best.
I took a couple rest days because my crappy shoes were making my feet throb after walking a couple miles. I kept my eating in check calorie-wise, despite not tracking everything as well as I should have. I do think I ate too much of some things (bread & cheese) while forgetting to get enough veggies & fruit in the way I have been. That on top of a ton of unneeded stress with my living situation & being a whiny girl has left me unmotivated & pissed off.
Previous weight : 258.5
Current weight. : 258.5
No loss/gain this week.
I still worked out solidly 3 days & didn't overeat but I find the number on the scale this week unchanged. I didn't do terribly this week, but I didn't do great either. I probably had too much sodium (not tracking everything hurt me there). On days I work, I drink tons of water, off days this week I didn't.
I didn't lose anything this week, but I didn't gain either. I had opportunities to drink myself silly, thoughts of raiding the fridge to deal with my frustration, but I didn't. For that I am proud!
One good thing from this past week is that I got new shoes! I went to Big River Running Company (http://www.bigriverrunning.com/) here in St Louis to see about getting fitted for some shoes. One of the employees there, Luke, helped me out. He watched me walk & his assessment was that I am an overpronator (especially my right foot) & have low arches. He recommended shoes with moderate stability & brought out a couple different choices. After 20 minutes or so and some trial & error I decided on a pair of New Balance 860's! Surprisingly they were only a size 9 & the normal width (I usually buy a 9 1/2 or 10 in wide width if they have it). They were more than I have ever spent on a pair of shoes in my life, but I know they're necessary for me to keep going.
That's where I'll leave off for tonight. I have tomorrow off with a possible Zumba class in the AM & a walk in Tower Grove Park planned with a friend from work in the afternoon. Here's to good choices this week & having a better attitude. I may not be able to control the behavior of those around me, but I need to stop letting it get the best of me.
