The #HAWMC prompt for yesterday was to free-write for 15 minutes about a lesson you learned the hard way.
Uh, only one?
But I didn't have 15 minutes to free-write and I certainly don't right now -- so yesterday is going to be considered one of my "day off" days, and I will say only this:
The lesson I have learned the hard way is that weight loss is never OVER. If your lifestyle changes slightly, so must your maintenance plan. Maintenance was super easy for me when I was still working at home, living in yoga pants and running shoes, and could buzz out for a walk or run or trip to the gym whenever I felt like it. The minute I got back into a suit and heels and corporate America and rush hour and meetings, my entire world got rocked -- and my metabolism failed to get the memo.
So my message to you? BE YE NOT AS STUPID. Make sure that your caloric intake adjusts with your activity level. If life slows you down, then you have to eat fewer calories.
Off and running,
