weekly weigh-in: 149.6lbs
I don't really have periods anymore since I have a Mir.ena IUD (I LOVE this thing) but I still have TOM. My body still goes through changes like my boobs are bigger & I am snappier than usual. When I was heavier, I never noticed this changes but now I am much more aware of my body. It is TOM-time for me right now.
Now that I'm getting used to maintenance, I'm trying to find my steady state. My eating is ok about 75% of the time (but I still have to have some chocolate almost every day) but more carbs than when I was actively losing. My workouts are still good. I Zumba'd last Thursday, nothing on Friday, 5.5mi run on Saturday (plus some garden work), 1 hr spin + 1 hr chisel on Sunday, 1 hr kickbox + 1 hr chisel last night. Yoga tonight. Kickbox & chisel tomorrow.
If I'm home, I think I workout now more than I did last year. At this point, its more a mental thing. All the exercise keeps me sane. Something I desperately need with all the craziness at work & craziness at home (kid still has a feeding tube & will for an undetermined amount of time). In the search for comfort, did I substitute exercise for food? Even if I did, is that such a bad swap? Sweat instead of sweets.
I'll close with a random NSV. Pictures. When the hubs & I started dating, he used to take lots of pics of me. As we got married, had a kid, settled down & I ballooned up, random pics became rare to non-existent. There are years where you'd be hardpressed to find more than 2 or 3 pics of me. I think partly due to me ducking the camera & partly due to him not trying to take pics. That has changed. On Friday, we went out to a neighborhood place for dinner & then stopped at a nearby cafe for wine and lounging on the patio listening to acoustic guitar. As I walked to our table - boom! - the hubs snaps a few random pics. Saturday afternoon was gorgeous here in Denver, so we went to local sports bar to watch basketball, drink a beer & hang out. Boom! a few more snaps. :) I think its kinda cute.
