Back to training.....

Enough talk about moving. That's not going to happen for a while and there will be plenty of time to talk about it as it gets closer. Back to training talk....

This week has not been good as far as training goes. I'll spare you the gory details but suffice it to say it's been a female problem. The thing that really bothers me about this is that I am so close to menopause, it's right around the corner and I just wish it would happen and I'd be done. I've known for years I wouldn't be needing anymore baby clothes. I wish there was a way to just turn it off. Okay, so training has not been great. But the eating has been fantastic. One thing that occurs during these times is that I'm not hungry. It's very easy to keep your eating under control when you're not really hungry to begin with.

Weight Watchers is going great. I'm doing the Flex plan this time and I'm really liking it. Now I quit WW about 2 years ago because 'it had stopped working for me.' Yeah, whatever. Looking back I realize now that I had stopped working the plan. I wasn't following WW, I was doing Flo's half-assed plan. That didn't work for me. I had also been following the Core program. Which is very good, but a little too easy for me to abuse.

For the last couple of years I've been a little obsessive about my food. Okay, I been freaking crazy. I went through a period where I tracked every nutrient and literally made myself nuts if my diet wasn't exactly balanced. I then went through a period where I religiously ate every 2-3 hours. That got old fast. For a long, long time I've avoided processed food. Unfortunately, that came to mean brown rice ?!?!? Whole wheat pasta ?!?!?! Bread of any kind ?!?!? But seemed to include cookies, beer, and chips. Hmmm.... That didn't work I wonder why??

When I started back on WW this time I was a little obsessed with the points. I had 26 for the day and for some reason felt like I needed to end the day with a lot left. I also felt that eating the 35 weekly points was not good. Crazy!! I know!! Well, I've gotten over that. I now try to spread the points out equally during the day so I'm not eating a lot more at one meal then I am at the others. It seems to be working out well. This week my problem has been eating all my 26 points. Not being hungry makes it hard to eat them all.

Okay, that's what's been going on nutrition and workout wise. Hopefully tomorrow we will resume our regularly scheduled training, providing the body cooperates.

I'm glad the program is working for you. I'm a huge believer in eating all those Points. Sometimes I go slightly over, or slightly under, but generally I try to stick to the daily points plus 35 extras. You need the extras to stay sane :) Glad you're finding balance after all the extremes.
