WOD: Had PT today. Did some light cleaning.
Was told I should try to lose 20 pounds by October. I've been in the low 180s since last spring and a little depressed about it. Too much sugar and too much stress (vicious cycle). Was asked to get a scale and weigh myself twice a week. Won't be happening. Going to stick to my food journal for the next thirty days or so. Took measurements and some photos for motivation, but I won't be looking at them until my thirty days is up.
I've never been a big fan of calorie counting and the like, but I've been under so much stress that I need a long, hard look at my habits to get back in gear. I know it's hypocritical, but I need a reset.
I picked up a copy of Primal Body, Primal Mind today too. Some folks think Nora sounds a little alarmist at times, but I'm interested in reading a more medical-geared text as opposed to a lifestyle text. Either way, looking forward to a nice read. The cover art is rather neat, too.
