Don't ask me why but I'm struggling these past few days. I know the plan is amazing and I need to trust it but my metabolism seems to have ground to a halt.
In the run up to Christmas I could literally do no wrong. Something had changed, some internal switch had flipped that meant I was so on plan that even the odd meal off here and there didn't interrupt the 1 and 2 lbs coming off.
Then along came Christmas. I had Christmas and Boxing Day sensibly off plan as well as a few nibbles whilst away the following weekend. I gained a respectable 2lb. But can I shift it? I am finding it hard to regain my mojo and despite being on plan and doing all the things I did before Christmas I just feel sluggish and bloated still. I know I need to give it time and wait for the magic to happen as we all know it does but I kind of need others to tell me that.
I am eating 1/3 superfree (breakfast is more like 3/4 superfree), having my (weighed) HEXs and having around 8 syns a day. I drink lots of water and green tea (I even tried making an iced version with fresh lemon and mint) and now I am back at work I am on my feet a lot and less prone to sitting on my bottom.
Please feel free to dive in and chastise me for being paranoid/impatient/lazy whatever really
