Last Week: 262.8
This Week: 266.6
So, I really thought I was the only person who gained weight while on a 48hr food-borne illness fun-fest, but according to FB posts on my page, I am not alone. Still it sucks. Not that I encourage or endorse food-borne illnesses as a weight reduction tool, but REALLY!?!
I at first attributed it to the Sprite & Ginger Ale I was quaffing to quell the nausea. There is sneaky sodium in those babies! Ginger Ale has 35mg per 8oz serving & Sprite has 45mg... and I probably had 4 servings or so each day. So, because I have not been drinking sodas very much I thought that was probably it.
I also thought it was maybe because over the weekend I had not been downing the water by the 24oz cupful like I have been doing (almost religiously). I was avoiding putting mass quantities of anything in my stomach as whatever went in had been making a hasty exit... blergh.
And then I had to admit to myself that it is really my overall poor choices over the last week or 2 that have caused a 4lb weight gain (OK, this morning I was 265.6, but I am only counting Wed. weigh-ins). I have been on some sort of food free-for-all... nachos, Big Macs (the source of the food-borne illness, btw), blue cheese fries, mashed potatoes drowning in cream gravy.. nary a green leafy in sight. le sigh
I don't know what my problem is (ok, maybe I do). I like good fresh food. I enjoy delicious healthy food. I like fresh produce, whole grains, lean meats. I even like some of the meat substitutes (Morningstar BBQ ribs I am looking at you). I LOVE to cook!! And I mean COOOOK... not boil-in-the-bag, just add water, microwave stuff... COOK! Get out the 8" Shun, dice, julienne, chiffonade, saute, braise, and roast up a delicious meal. So what gives?
This gives: LAZY TRUMPS ALL

I think everything will take less time than it really will. I leave my everything to the last minute - lectures, papers, grading, PowerPoints, research, reading... cleaning... until it is absolute GO time and I HAVE to finish.
I am THE BEST at time wasting, piddling (in the time sense, not the urinary sense - although with all the water I am drinking...), playing on FB, finding 10 OTHER things to do instead of what I should be doing that I end up in a horrendous time crunch. I end up overtaxed, over stressed, and let things like meals & exercise fall by the wayside because I HAVE to get (insert task here) DONE!!
What I need is some SERIOUS time management skills. I am looking for some ideas/help here peeps. Help me help myself & get back on track. I really do want to be a happier, healthier person.
What tricks/tips do you have/use to manage your time?
Muchas Gracias mis amigos!
