This whole “eat better, exercise more” thing that I’m trying to do is definitely getting harder with each day. I find it extremely difficult to log all the calories I eat and track all of the calories I burn. I wish I could afford to buy something that would do it for me…
My main problem is at night. I am usually pretty good about eating 1 snack in the afternoon if I really need one. But around dinner time (and even after) I have the urge to just binge. It’s awful! I honestly don’t know what to do about it.
I have been good about going to the gym though. Yesterday I ran 1.25 again and starting Tuesday I will run 1.5. HOLY COW, I don’t think I’ve ever ran that far without stopping. I’m excited! I also realized yesterday that my birthday is on the first Tuesday that I have to run 2 miles. What a milestone that will be… I’ll make sure I do it because i don’t want it to ruin my birthday!
Last night I was showing a friend the dress I wore just 2 years ago (size 9/10) to banquet. It was very clear that it was too small for me now but when I stepped into it and couldn’t even get it around my waist, I wanted to cry. I don’t understand what happened in the last 2 years that made me gain so much weight, but it’s sad that it happens so fast.
I’m meeting my friend Caitlin for lunch today at Panera. I think I’m going to get the you-pick-two with french onion soup, and half of the turkey artichoke sandwich. I’ve never had the turkey artichoke, so hopefully it’s good. I believe it had the lowest points for the sandwiches. I suppose I could do salad, but I”ll have to see what kind of mood I’m in.
Today is weigh-in but if I go after I eat I’m guessing it won’t be a good one. So I might just wait until tomorrow. Yesterday I weighed in at 175.7 (-0.9/) comeeee on 1 lb! 5.3 lbs gone! We’ll see!
oh, I recently tried the Healthy Choice All Natural Entree Portabella Spinach Parmesan. It was DELICIOUS. I really enjoyed it and it was only 270 calories! And it filled me up so that’s good. I definitely recommend it!
That’s all for now!
Enjoy your Sunday!
