It has been quite some time since I was last here. This year has been a crazy one to say the least. I had just started subbing at the local school when COVID hit and school was reduced to Zoom meetings and homework packets worked through with the kiddos parents rather than teachers (at least for my son this was the case). I was glad to get back to work and man am I working. I was doing great with my new lifestyle and worked my way down to 143-145lbs (depending on the day). Then the holidays hit.
*puts head on table for a moment*
I had 3 Thanksgiving dinners to go to (husbands parents split when he was young). The consecutive eat days after 11 months of alternate day fasting was difficult for me (binge eating has become a habit). I am still struggling to get back on track and have, as a result, I am back up to 153.0... It may not seem like a lot, but my body is completely different. I felt great before. I could tuck shirts and still feel good, I loved the thinner face shape, my muffin top and thick thighs were finally gone...Although I had lost my boobs (not cool), I was more confident (...that is the only weight gain area I am currently happy about at this time). Today will be my first fast day. I loved the lifestyle and it was the one thing that worked for me personally alongside exercise better than anything I had ever tried before (and I have tried many things). I started 21 day fix again (it worked alongside running before and I enjoyed it). I figured continuing to blog like before would get me back on track.
Good luck to everyone trying to bounce back after the holidays and just this crazy year. And sorry for the book! I haven't blogged in quite some time!
