I just got back from the gym, frustrated because they close an hour early on Friday. My good intentions of a full 45 minutes on the elliptical were completely spoiled, but I managed 25. Plus today was a bus day, so I walked about 40 minutes total to and from various bus stops. And it was really, really hot--do I get extra points for walking in 90F heat?
Other frustrations include calorie counting--I meant for today to be a higher calorie day, since I've had a couple low calorie days in a row, but I just haven't been hungry. I ended up eating past the point when I felt full just because I had this goal of eating a lot. I don't like that.
And on top of that, I bought some clothes today and, of course, staring at myself in the dressing room mirror was... well, frustrating. I feel like I've been working so hard, and doing so much better with food, and I've got NOTHING to show for it after three solid weeks. One pound lost. Still all flab, no muscle. Still can't fit into the pants I bought just last fall.
So. Yeah. A pretty good day numbers-wise, not a good day mentally.
