So I did a goofy workout today but it got the job done, I ran laps with handweights doing random exercises with them, really got the sweat going. But the most telling thing that happened, I ran carrying 30lbs for about 5 minutes, this is some of the weight I have lost, not all, and jeepers I could hardly run, no wonder running at 270 was monumental let alone how did I do anything when I was at 310, how could I walk let alone chug out a single block running....that was a lesson that really took me back and made me realize how far I have come and how far another 60lbs will take me.

Thank you all for supporting me when I was down and frustrated by Thanksgiving. I got out of the holiday without gaining a pound, I managed to enjoy pecan pie, the only pie worth consuming:-). I worked out Wednesday with my trainer pretty hard, I got a free session BTW so I have one more left tomorrow. I started off Thursday with a run. Mike insisted on taking something to my parents so I suggested a nice green salad since we still have lettuce and tomatoes going in our garden (mini greenhouse). I filled my plate pretty full with that and a little bit of turkey to start, then I ate peas and a little bit of stuffing and a little bit of mashed potatoes and a little bit of corn casserole. I emphasize a little bit because I took nice tiny sample size portions. I had a half slice of pumpkin creme pie, since my Grandma wanted a small slice I had the other half. Then we enjoyed social time and it was off to Mike's family Thanksgiving. I started this one by playing tag with Mike's nephew, burned a few calories while we waited for things to finish, I made the mashed potatoes which are my favorite, but that way too I could control how much badness went into them. I had another very moderate plate of food and enjoyed a small slice of pecan pie. I made it through the day didn't feel like it was a total victory but it was minimal damage.
Friday morning Mike and I hit the gym and worked out together burning a decent amount of calories doing intervals on the treadmill and following it up with a swim. We ate healthy light meals of soups etc. and put up Christmas stuff. Now I just got to get through Christmas and New Year's and hopefully do so losing some weight.
Smart phones, just a side bar, are fantastic mine is really helping me lose weight, I use it to log food. It has a kindle reader so I have a couple fitness books right on it that I can reference. Totally random but this thing has been a big help, cause I log my food right when I eat it, not later, which really helps me decide if I am going to eat something or not.

This has to be the worst holiday ever invented, a day to just eat and be fat. All I end up in full of guilt and hating myself. I really want the flu on Thanksgiving, or at least a coma. I don't want to deal with being around all of that freaking food! My boyfriend's family is going to have like 20 pies what the heck there will be like 8 of us there. Can this holiday just go away, the stores skip from Halloween to Christmas why can't I? I have been working too hard, why does this damn holiday have to exist.

The Green eyed monster is the nickname I have for my insatiable hunger, its when food is in the back of my mind and the monster doesn't shut up. I am on day whatever of eating dead on perfect this week and now it is talking to me, I am fighting very hard not to listen, I made a decent food choice, not great but figured beans with a lot of protein might help shut the monster up. But seeing as it is 326 in the blessed A.m. it means it is going to be a rather long day (sometimes this is where night shift is a pain for eating right) . I have another training session today, hopefully I will be so worn out that I don't want to eat, but since that usually isn't the case I am going to have to be extra mindful today of what is going in my mouth, I will have to log it before I plate it, eat it, or stuff it straight into my mouth. If I keep my calories under 1500 today I will be super impressed, let alone keep it closer to the 1200 that my trainer wants me to eat. I am trying not to think of food as an enemy but nights/days like these are tough. I think my action plan is what has been working, lots of frozen veggies, which means I should hit the store after work in the morning, I only have peas left and while I love them, I will need variety.
