So as I hinted to in my last post, I had a pretty big week. I had a giant explosion of “OMG” and have been dealing with the resulting fallout.
And often in times like these, people (like the “Old Me”) seek comfort in food.
New Me has a different approach. All veggies.
I ate a lot of veggies this week. And I put a lot of stuff in jars. I’ve discovered that if I am feeling bad, I don’t necessarily want to EAT food, I apparently want to CREATE it.
So I made yogurt. And cheese. And bread. And Rhubarb BBQ Sauce. And more jam.
And all of that movement through the kitchen (even though I didn’t work out a stitch) and cleaning the house and moving furniture and generally not doing a lot of sitting down….I maintained this week.
No loss, no gain.
Usually when I hit a point of stress (and this is the most stress I’ve been under since I worked at The Evil Empire), I expect to gain at LEAST 10-15 pounds. If not more.
So maintaining is a good start.
And now I’ll work on getting workouts in to my schedule. And making sure I continue to do good things for my body.
Because my body is NOT A TRASH CAN. I need to stop putting garbage in it.
Hope you all are having a fabulous week!
Side note: whomever created glittery bathtub “crayons” should come over to my house, look at my sparkly bathtub, my glittery Twilight vampire baby and the side of my face (which seems to have broken out in a glittery rash) and tell me that glitter belongs in the hands of toddlers.
That is all.
