Thanksgiving Weekend.....and pre-Thanksgiving week
Monday, November 27, 2006
Well, I didn't do as well as I thought I would. I just changed the title of this because it all started on Monday 11/20.
I went to a show and there was a dinner buffet, I feel that I ate well and I turned down dessert because it wasn't something I was in love with. I wasn't able to exercise this day at all.
I did great on Tuesday.
Wednesday I ate well but didn't workout. I was SO tired - I think I was out before 10pm.
On Thursday I got up and walked to get a paper, they didn't have them at the corner so I had to walk a bit farther (that's ok, right?) so I took about a 15 minute walk. Then I came home and worked out. I think that I did eat fairly well. I didn't do a ton of snacking. I tried all of the desserts that I liked, but I didn't finish any of them. I threw away a plate full of half eaten slivers of pie and lots of pie crust! I also didn't snack at all after dinner.
Friday - up at 2:15 am (I was planning on 3, but Mason was barking and I couldn't get back to sleep) met the girls at 4:15 and we hit the stores. I have never gotten so much shopping done in one day and I'm so happy because it will really cut down on my stress level this Christmas. I will actually be able to slow down and do some things that are meaningful instead of just spending my time shopping every waking moment! I don't even think I did bad eating on Friday. I had an omelette for breakfast, soup and sandwich for lunch, pizza for dinner, but I didn't snack between meals at all. I didn't get to bed until about 11! 21 hours awake - what was I thinking???
Saturday and Sunday - UGH! I should have exercised, I did have the time, I just didn't do it. I walked around 2 grocery stores on Saturday and I did help my husband put up Christmas lights. Sunday I just sat on my butt all day. I couldn't get motivated to do anything! I think my lack of sleep from Friday caught up with me. I took 2 naps! And I munched Saturday night and all day Sunday - definitely mindless eating going on there.
I'm glad that I can re-focus on my program now that most of my shopping is out of the way. I have to get back on track. I was really thinking about quitting - it was just so easy to not think about calories, not to workout. Thank God I snapped out of that mode quickly. I thought, "What are you saying, girl? Are you stupid? Think about how great you've been feeling. Mentally and physically. And you want to throw it away now so you can eat Combos and chocolate cake? PLEASE!"
I have a quick dinner planned for tonight and a nice long workout! I just read my action steps for this week and I'm only supposed to work out in 10-15 minute increments this week, but I can't do that. I need to get one GREAT workout in to get myself back into the swing of things. Then I can do the short workouts for the rest of the week.
