A Wee Hiatus

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

I've taken a wee hiatus from the blogging, but not necessarily from the regime. Well, maybe a little. It's difficult to feed a ravenous husband on vegetarian dinners all the time, so I did eat some wheat this week. Also probably too much salt. Tomorrow I'm starting the no junk food challenge, which includes no PEANUT BUTTER or CHOCOLATE for 21 days. This will be difficult for me..... But I can do it, all I have to do is remember I'm challenging myself. That's the hardest part, is getting OUT of the habit. And, today we went for Chinese food, no msg, but still. Thankfully there was fresh veg there too.


A beautiful day :)

Today was a great day. I began using the sparkpeople food tracker on my iphone a few days ago, and today was the first day I actually planned my meals ahead of time. Now, I didnt follow it for dinner, but what I ate was actually not far off from what I had planned, just added some tomatoes and a wee bit of leftover jambalaya and grilled asparagus. It was super good, and I am really glad I have leftovers. Today is the first day in a long time that I have actually felt I can accomplish my goals. I feel strong today! I feel like in planning my meals ahead of time, Ive added some kind of ammunition to my little fat battling army! It feels really good, and I know that by july, I will be prancing in last years cutoffs and my lovely tie dyed bikini! I am so excited for this journey!


Today was a writeoff

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

It seems like I ate a lot more calories today than I did, but its my own fault for not keeping track til the end of the day. Tomorrow I will be back on track, and hopefully out of my little funk I seem to be in today.. To run, to drink tons of water, to eat a lovely breakfast of egg and perhaps some coffee. Anyway, I am starting to feel lame, from being so far away from home, missing my animals, my house, my life.. One more week, and I can be surrounded by the things I love, cook in my own kitchen, sleep in my own bed! One more week. Happy love day to everyone!

So I had my little run for the day, which was short and kind of painful, and ends up being a speed walk. This is still good, cause tomorrow I have another goal to reach. For now, I feel like a million bucks just cause I went out there and did it! Now I need to go buy some proper running shoes and a sportsbra. Then I'll be unstoppable!


Today, I RUN

Monday, February 13, 2012

Today is the day I will run. This is huge for me. I am and never was a runner. I was always at the back of the herd in gym class, gasping for breath and clutching my side. It seemed like the fates did not want me to run, cursing me with annual bouts of bronchitis, a torn ligament in my knee at age 10, and weak lungs. But I have decided the fates can suck it. Rebecca is awake and ready to go, and although I am steadily losing steam, I will get out there and run my ass off, even if it only lasts for a little while. If I cant run far, I will still run. One day I will run FAR. So off I go.

    Ah, but you ARE and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN a runner!!

Your body just didn't understand that.

Now that your mind is in the game, your body will have no choice but to follow.

So today and every other day to come, tell your subconscious, "I am a runner." Eventually, your sub will respond, "Well, then, why are we sitting here on this couch??? Let's go!"

At that point, your momentum has you firmly in its grasp. It will then carry you farther and farther down whatever road you choose.

Because, within reasonable limitations, your sub. has no choice but to do what you tell it.

And "I am a runner" is reasonable.

Best of luck to you on your journey. Enjoy conquering this challenge!
