The fat girl report: 03/21/21

The scale does not define me but it gives me data that I can use.

Sunday: I failed to track my food. I have no idea what I ate but I assume I was off course in my eating. I assume I overate. I assume I had no fruit and no vegetables. My step count was 5,341. I did no intentional exercise. I slept for 7 hours and 3 minutes and the quality of my sleep was fair.

Monday: I tracked all meals and used 28 points. I had vegatables but no fruit. My step count was 4,091 and I did no intentional exercise. I slept 6 hours and 2 minutes and the quality of my sleep was good.

Tuesday: My eating was out of control but I tracked. I used 50 points (ouch). I had no fruit and no vegetables. My step count was 4,509 and I did no intentional exercise. I slept for 5 hours and 48 minutes and the quality of my sleep was poor.

Wednesday: I tracked all of my food. I used 38 points. I ate fruit and vegetables. My step count was 11,364 but I did no intentional exercise. I slept for 6 hours and 30 minutes and the quality of my sleep was good.

Thursday: I tracked all of my food and used 30 points. I ate fruit but no vegetables. My step count was 12,178 but I did no intentional exercise. I slept 5 hours and 26 minutes and the quality of my sleep was fair.

Friday: I went totally our of control with my eating but I did track everything I ate. I used 72 points (yikes). I had fruit but no vegetables. My step count was 666 because I took of my Fitbit in the morning and failed to put it back on. As a result I did not record my sleep for the night.

Saturday: I didn’t track all of my food. I only tracked breakfast and lunch which amounted to only 9 points. However I did eat fruit and I had no vegetables. My step count was 4,862 and I did no intentional exercise. I slept 8 hours and 22 minutes and the quality of my sleep was fair.

The sleeping takeaway. I only hit my sleep goal 2 times out of 7. I can do better than that. I need to get in the bed earlier. My goal this week is to get in the bed at 8pm every night this week.

The eating takeaway. I did a pretty good job tracking. I even tracked on the two days when I went off the rails. That is good. I can build on that by maintaining my tracking habit and shoot for at least six days out of seven. My goal will be to track the days food before I go to sleep that night. I had fruit 4 days out of7 and vegetable 3 days out of 7. This is actually an great improvement over my usual eating pattern when it comes to fruit and vegetables. My plan this week is to maintain that level and see if I can even improve on it.

The activity takeaway. This is by far my biggest challenge. On the days I’m at work I get plenty of steps. However it’s too much because I usually feel stressed and am actually in pain by the end of the workday. On the days when I’m off, I’m often recovering from the pain that I feel because of work. So I don’t do any intentional exercise. I don’t have a plan for how to deal with this other than trying to find a new job that doesn’t punish my body so much.

…and finally the numbers: today’s weight=219.0, down 0.9 from last week.
