This week has been rubbish. Well not the whole week, just the last few days. Even after my Anger post on Friday. I let it all get to me that evening and used food to distract myself. I want to change this and this just proves I have to keep working at it!

I put on weight this week. I put on 2.8lbs. I am disappointed, but I know that it was my choice to eat the things I did. I wouldn’t usually eat out 4 times in one week so that was very unusual for me. It is so hard to know what to choice. I find I think I have chosen a ‘healthy’ option but then it comes with something you don’t expect. Overall I have eaten too much this week and not done enough exercise.
It has been frustrating. Over the last year I have lost fitness. Now I am back at a level I had forgotten about. Everything is hard and mentally exhausting. I know I had to work to get there and then keep working to stay at a good level of fitness, but it is hard not to be disappointed at myself for letting everything slip.
I have been back from my trip a month now and I have run out of excuses. I want to get my motivation and dedication back. I have 2 months until my first open water swim of the year and only 2 weeks left of the Ki Scientists help. I have been putting together a training plan for my swimming and feel good. I just want to learn more about food. I need to study my data more than I do and that is my plan for this week. I am away with work so I have decided that in the evenings I will sit down and work through the last 4 weeks to see what worked for me and how I can make changes to what hasn’t worked.
This week my goal is to learn about myself. I want to understand what my data is telling and work out some ideas of how to improve things.
