Sunday… Rain… Work… And I’m sore as hell. Moved around those 20lb dumbbells on Friday morning and my body hates me a little bit today for it. That and I went for a 2 hr walk afterwards. That walk was taken with a good friend of mine who has recently asked me to help get her motivated to move, even if it’s just for a walk. I had absolutely no problems with that request, we even planned (and cooked) an extremely healthy vegetarian dinner. But… it was the snacks that killed me… a bag of chocolate chip cookies and some chips… a full day’s calories in one snack session. Then, went home, had a large cup of Oatmeal Crisp with some vanilla almond milk as a bedtime snack… I am such a sucker for snacks.. and for carbs in general… It’s like they have a magnetic pull… I simply cannot get enough. It’s extremely disappointing when I munch out on a bad snack, I feel really bad afterwards, and am down on myself about it all day… and it’s something that’s happening more and more often as I get more comfortable with my new body.
Grocery day is coming on Tuesday… I will pick up apples, bananas, peppers, and other good snacking foods to keep a good stock handy. On Wednesday I will hang out with Brenda, cook, and freeze portions, do a full workout (maybe even get Brenda to do a workout with me), and do really well from July 16-22. That is my goal.
Then I’ll worry about the following week.
