Some days I do well just to get out of bed and off to work, but dare I set a long term goal of running?
My first milestone is putting my shoes on without having to use my pantleg to pull my foot up to where I can reach it.
I think I did ok this week with my nutrition, kinda blew it today with eating actual eggs instead of just whites. It wasn't so much the calories as it was the cholesterol. I don't normally eat the yolks since the last diet was on about a year and a half ago. I would occasionally give in and eat a yolk or two because I like them.
Funny thing is that when I was younger, I remember NOT liking them and clearly remember on Easter, mom telling me that if I did not eat the entire egg, then I couldn't have any more Easter eggs.
On the days that I cook for just me and my beau, I still have a hard time cooking just for two, then the tasting while cooking, then the compulsion to 'clean my plate', and finally my weird thing of not liking leftovers (with very few exceptions). Generally leftovers in my fridge never get eaten and eventually thrown away....wasted.
So this week, I have been trying to cook according to how many people are eating, as well as eating healthier. Sometimes its difficult with working full time and then having to deal with supper in the evenings. Sometimes the room mate will cook, but she usually sticks with cheaper cuts of meat and heavy carbs. I did manage to survive my latest guilt attack of us seeing what she made for dinner the other night and deciding to go out for something healthier.
We ended up having some very expensive and VERY awesome tuna at a local hibachi restaurant...the chef put on a good show as well!
