Default Weight loss life lesson #137

Do NOT stop at grocery store on the way home from swimming laps. 65 minutes of swimming negated in car on the way home and even ate into the calorie deficit I had going for the day before I went to the gym.

Won't make THAT mistake again...

Don't you wish we didn't have to learn these lessons? Ha! It is an ongoing journey though.

Don't beat yourself up. You recognized the mistake and have moved on.

For some reason, swimming makes me ravenous. I have no idea why. Bring a snack with you next time!

I never walk into a store without a list. It's murder for me.

At least you had a deficit though! So not too much damage done!
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!

After I get out of the pool, I'm usually munching an apple while blow-drying my hair. Sometimes I tuck a little package of Trader Joe's "handful" of almonds or handful of trail mix into my gym bag. Those help, too.

What I feel after swimming is tired, in a good way, more than ravenous. It took me a long time to figure that out, though.
