But I digress... Excursivey's journal
Not sure why I need a journal since I really don't keep track of work outs or what I eat but maybe if I tried to I would stay a bit more accountable. I'm thinking it just might be helpful in case I wanna rant or ramble about about something and not hijack somebody else's thread as much.
The basics are that I'm female, currently 47, 5'7" at 135-140. I had been sitting at 135 solidly for months but started fluctuating kinda wildly since I started trying to work out again regularly a couple weeks ago. Kinda freaking me out but trying not to sweat it since I figure it's water. (Maybe that means I SHOULD sweat it!) I've never really been overweight and was a skinny mini kid. Was a runner from way back in junior high. I gained about 25 pounds though after I lost my 43 year old husband to a brain tumor by I guess just eating and drinking whatever in a kind of fog. (That will be 3 years ago in November.) I actually lost most of that on Weight Watchers. I didn't go to the meetings or buy the food. I was always trying to eat as much whole food and "clean" as I could all the while but I used the point system. I thought it worked pretty well and I think it's probably about as good as you can do on a SAD type of eating if you eat good real food. BUT it was a constant struggle to not go back to gaining. I stumbled over Primal Blueprint through a friend at work and it all just seemed to make so much sense. I don't really think I have any food issues but since I went primal I don't seem to have to worry (much) about gaining or maintaining weight.
My real goals at this point are good health and not being a frail little old lady when I get there. I've kinda given up on the last vanity pounds and visible abs. I'm just too lazy and I don't want to worry THAT much about what goes into my mouth.
So far today coffee with heavy cream and a teaspoon of sugar.
I guess that's all I've got for now...
Breathe. Move forward.
I just eat what I want...
