I didn’t make it in last night, but I’m getting to it this morning. I don’t have too much to report on. I did lose another pound. I could have done better. I should have done better. I’m trying to look at it in another light. Instead of beating myself up because I didn’t exercise like I should have, I’m trying to look at it like this - I must have my eating down. If I was able to go a month without exercising and ate like I normally do, then I must be doing something right with my dieting if i didn't gain anything and was able to lose a pound. Right? Or am I overreaching? Lol
The only exercise I got in was one walk at lunch and my first 10K with Shannon on Saturday. Holy hell. I thought I was going to die. But, I didn’t stop and I did finish. Yay for that. It did teach me that I have a long way to go and that I should stick to 5K’s for now. Lol (Bonus - I got bananas after the race! I LOVE bananas! That was my motivation at the end. "They better have f-ing bananas!" Lol)
I have started on the thing of only eating foods from the exterior of the grocery. The only thing I eat from the interior are the white and red beans. I still buy things from the interior, but it’s things the kids can fix for them for dinner on the nights that I have class. I don’t eat any of it. I am also finding that I don’t miss eating any of it. My belly has gotten picky. It only accepts fresher foods. Love that. I bought fresh (and some frozen) veggies instead of the canned ones. They taste SO much better. I also use freshly chopped seasoning instead of the pre-made one. I don’t eat as much bread as I did before. I am also trying to limit my rice and potato portions.
I am trying to find some time to make a daily journal that will include what I ate and what, if any, exercise I did. I think I may be a visual person. Maybe once I see it in writing I’ll feel an obligation to fill it out - honestly. Lol I may even force myself to commit to posting it on here. We’ll see. Well, back to work!
