Yay! I’m back down to my original weigh-in weight.
I realise that’s not what I should be saying at this point in the challenge, but I’m still thrilled with being 11(.2)lbs down in four weeks.
As I head into the fifth week, I’m mostly thinking:
I’m really, really exhausted.
I honestly didn’t think that adding on two extra days of working out would hit me as hard as it has, but it has! I thought I’d have more energy at this point, but, as always, my medications are making sure I’m sleeping for 13 or 14 hours a day, and my sciatica (which I’m still inclined to think, given my other conditions/symptoms, is actually fibromyalgia) is making sure I’m still in pain, even after I’m medicated.
My eating this past week was a lot better than in week three. No tins of roses for this girl!
I will admit, however, that I wasn’t 100% Paleo; I have actually allowed myself a bowl of honey Cheerios in the evenings if I’ve been hungry, and those are definitely not Paleo.
But they’ve allowed me to feel like I’m indulging myself, and since I don’t wake up early enough to eat breakfast, that covers that, too.
I’m wondering if I wasn’t eating enough, again.
Other than the fact that I ate an entire tin of Roses in week three, I’m wondering if I plain wasn’t eating enough. I was having lunch upon waking, then dinner at dinner time, and then a large portion of fruit after dinner – grapes or pineapple or something like that, sometimes with a couple of spoons of Greek yoghurt.
But then I wouldn’t have anything else to eat. Because my dinners are large enough to keep me full. The only reason I ate the chocolates was because they were there.
So I’m wondering, yeah. If I wasn’t eating enough. I know it’s sometimes not about how many calories you take in, as it is about how much food you take in.
Something to think on.
