Carbs overload, and it’s all processed carbs.
This has been my escape goat for the last three weeks. Bread over breads. White rice. High caloric lunch meals.
This is a detour, major detour, from my usual oil-free whole food plant based lifestyle.
And now, I feel guilty every time I devoured in processed carbs and oily meals. Not only that, I feel bloated too like my tummy didn’t have time to digest my food before my next meal.
I winded down too in my exercise routine.
Instead of aiming of eight (8) kilometers everyday, I ended up achieving four (4) kilometers only.
I am scared. I felt like I am falling back to my old self. I really don’t want to weigh 83 kilos again.
I knew if I continue eating like this, I will be back to where I was in no time.
The culprit of this is my new workload. I am stepping out in my comfort zone, embracing more work and responsibilities. The sad thing, it is not financially compensated.
You know those colleagues of you who kept whining; who have grievances for being overworked and underpaid. I am afraid that I am heading to that truckload of unhappy employees. **sad face**
So I am not very optimistic with my November results. I don’t want even to weigh and look at the numbers. For sure, it doesn’t reflect any promising results.
Indeed exercise and food have direct impact to our weight. When I become lax, additional weight starts to creep in.
But despite of this, there’s still a good thing that happened this month.
I have been drinking green smoothies for breakfast for the last three weeks. After having oatmeal breakfast for more than five months, its flavor began to fade. It tasted bland. Perhaps I was not creative enough to spice it up.
But I am happy now with my newfound breakfast meal. I am able to consume more fruits and veggies specially those that I really don’t like.
And the good thing about this, I stopped drinking coffee. Yehey! Well, I still do but occasional coffee like once a week.
What about you? How’s your fitness and wellness journey so far? Are you gaining or losing some weight?
Luv to hear from you!
