Week 46

Week 46

Current weight 12 stone 11 lbs…which is roughly 81.18 kg or 179 lbs

So, the issues continue on again for another week! But it has been quite enlightening shall we say despite the fact in 3 weeks I have gained 4 lbs…

So last week I talked about stress and the impact it was having on my diet, and literally the following day last week I suddenly thought about sleep and how I had not been sleeping well, and the impact on that is quite marked. So, you do not sleep well, so you are tired (I fell asleep 3 times in front of the TV last week before 10pm). You are tired so you do not make your breakfast in advance, you haven’t planned or made lunch and your evening meal is an afterthought, snacks what are snacks…

So tiredness and craving the wrong type of foods is quite key. In addition June is a receipt keeping month, and wow, is all I can say having spent over £200 already on food this month and we are not 2 thirds in yet. So, a little bit of stress and tiredness can actually have quite a vast impact on things (and that is without mentioning the weight gain!)

So (fourth sentence starting with ‘so’ note) we can see what the issues are, and we know to a certain extent part of what was causing them, now it is how do we deal with this. I have been given a couple of suggestions, of what to eat and how to keep busy to avoid snacking, nothing seems to be helping. I also thought let us just ride this out until I am back to normal again, but, well, I feel perfectly normal (apart from wanting to eat constantly that is ha ha).

So (5th time) changes I am making. I starting this week am ensuring my breakfast is prepared every morning, and there is no excuse and no need to spend money I have everything needed for this already in the house, back to overnight oats for a while, keeps me full, and is relatively easy to make. If I forget, just use granola (already in the house) with the yogurt instead.

Lunch is a bit more difficult…after watching the documentary on sandwiches and how wraps were higher calories I went onto flatbread…which is now mouldy and out of date…am going back to wraps, they have been my staple for months, more calories or not! I have food in the cupboard to put in them, I need to find the drive to overcome being too tired, and remind myself healthy food will probably help me feel more awake! My current diet is perhaps partially to blame for making me feel tired…

Evening meals…well I still have a selection of pre-cooked in the freezer and the ingredients for another set of pre-cooked food, when I reach Saturday, I need to cook. I should say the past 2 weekends have just been somewhat busy, and as I have been tired when in the house cooking has really been low down on the mood scale! But I feel a veggie chilli with lentils is definitely on my menu now!
