The ups and downs

I have stopped posting my weekly weigh in and measurement reports, mainly because it is getting discouraging. I know that is part of the motivation behind it, but it is causing me to really hate keeping up this blog. I think this blog still serves an important role so I don't want to get a bad attitude towards it.

As you are aware if you have been reading for any time, I broke my collar bone four months ago running a race and have been able to do very little physical activity since. If you are unaware or are new to my blog, more information can be found on my running blog at I am starting to get back into the running a little bit, but it is very uncomfortable still at this time.

One thing I have noticed, and is probably the biggest reason I have gained the 5 lbs over this past four months of inactivity, is that when I am not as active on a daily basis, I tend not to crave the same foods, but tend to crave the fattier foods and the foods that are generally not as good for you. Fruit has become less appealing, although I still enjoy it. It has just been easier to make bad choices and to continue to eat when I know my body has had enough.

I am not sure all the reasons behind this, but it is very real. I am trying to figure out what I can do to turn this around because I still have two more months before the surgery to remove the pin.

I hope to still actively post on this blog, but just will not be posting my weekly weigh in and measurements..... which most of you don't care about anyway :)

Until next time......

  1. It's definitely psyochologically much harder to stay on track when you are not seeing success.

    I know for myself that having a few higher weighins in a row makes me think bugger it which is a bit self defeating.

    However, when I'm on a roll then everything seems so easy.
