Moving and stress is bad for the diet

I hate to admit it, but I have put back on all the weight I've lost and then some.

I have no excuse aside from the fact that I have not been diligent, I have been stressed and I stress eat, and life has been super hectic as we have been moving.

We've been in the middle of moving for the last couple of months, moving stuff from the city apartment to the country home as we relocate.

I can't even begin to tell you how stressful moving is for me. We counted and in the 13 years that Steve and I have been living together we have moved 14 times. That's more moves that years we've been living together. Argh!!

So, I haven't been eating healthily, my daily routine has been interrupted and even the little exercise that I used to do on a daily basis has dwindled down to zero since I am not following my usual routine anymore.

Basically, it all boils down to the fact that I have not been eating healthily and not exercising.

So, in all of that, I have started calorie counting again and I hope that will keep me on the right track. It's not exactly 100% accurate but it is a good guide and it keeps me from overeating.

Every time I get serious about calorie counting and losing weight, I discover once again how many calories food has. I also find that calorie counting seems to be the most effective way for me to lose weight.

Just watch what I put into my mouth.

So far today, I've had my usual morning juice for breakfast, a snack and lunch. That's already used up 1,043 of the 1,500 calories that I am allowed to eat for the day. That does not leave much for dinner, so I guess dinner is going to be a 100 calorie veggie juice! :-p

I admit, this is going to be hard, we are still right in the middle of moving. There's nothing in the fridge and we are not living a stable life right now, but I'm going to do my best.

We'll see what tomorrow brings. Wish me luck!!
