I’ve been quiet for a few days. It’s actually been kind of nice. 🙂 Admittedly, I had one day where I only ate one actual meal – sometime around 6:30PM, I realized “Oh gee, I should eat something besides chocolate today!!” and filled a small serving platter 2″-3″ high with Real Food. 😄
I wanted some time off of thinking of food, and had figured the holidays would be fine. Most of our holiday meals consist of lots of meat anyway, and veggies. It worked out. I’ve been lazy, eating junk and snacking, and it’s been nice. And I think I’m about over it, too. 🙂 Too much of a good thing CAN be a bad thing, you know.
Too much chocolate/junk food (for the sake of the argument, it’s in this case the ‘good’ part) is BAD. We know that.
Too much worrying over types/quantity (good, right?) can be a bad thing too. I’d been starting to over-think everything, even at 80-90% paleo. I was starting to seriously undereat even the good stuff. Somewhere, I needed a break. Meat’s delicious, but it’s hard to make lots of without a coherent kitchen. I have been lacking this item for several weeks now. 🙂 Stressing out over it wasn’t healthy either, so I opted for a break.
So. Time off from food-focusing, time off from blogging (Although: YES I will be going back and logging workouts from prior days), time off mentally.
I will probably stop weighing myself regularly – rather, I will probably stop posting specifics. I’ve seen the trends and they’re good to know, I am SO glad I’ve done this for a few months now. I have a better idea of how my own body works. Still, freaking out over the publicity isn’t healthy either. 🙂 I’ll probably put up an occasional one, but not everyday. (btw, after Xmas my highest topped at 165.2, I’m currently back to 163.4 and still dropping. Eating more has indeed helped ‘fix’ the issue. Nothing I can do about the timing, though.)
I’ve set PR’s in the past week, and been trying to get some sleep AND be lazy around the house – time spent on the comp playing WoW has been fun and a great break. After this weekend, though, it’s Back to Reality. Once I figure out where I set it….
