However, in terms of the scale, I am still continuing to see results, by eating "cleaner" and not eating between meals.
I weighed in at 181# with an abdominal measurement of 38.5". This is down from 201# and 42.0" last fall.
I would like to blame the nature of shift work, but plenty of folks were able to stay fit. For me, a mindset was that these hours are brutal, if I need a treat or an indulgence to get me through the next 4 hours so what. That could look like sugary snacks, soda, caffeine, nicotine, energy drinks, on line shopping or any number of indulgences that can become routine.
I have a lot of things in my favor now. I work 200 yards from a Crossfit gym. I work 40 hours/week. I have the opportunity to rest and recover. I have access to healthy meals. I got a nudge from my blood work showing elevated A1C.
For breakfast this morning, I had 2 eggs scrambled in butter, avocado toast, strawberries, orange juice and a chai latte.
For lunch I packed a chicken wrap, strawberries, apple sauce, banana, Larabar and a diet coke.
