Feeling like a slacker and calorie difficulties

Sunday, June 13, 2010

I haven't managed to get off the couch to go running this week (catching up from jetlag)- not that I haven't excercised. I do an hour in the Gym everyday but with a 10K in July a little concerned about my progress.

I've got to the stage where if I don't excercise or don't do an hour a day I feel like a slacker - know part of this is because I'm type A but at the end of the day excercise lets me deal with my stress.

On the calorie front I'm almost always under on weekdays - I'm forcing myself to eat more to make my calories up and then on the weekend I eat more than I should.... frustrating.

    It's amazing how much just an hour of exercise menas to both your body and your mood! And you will even out the eating as well, give yourself time and space to be less than perfect, you can do it!

    It can be hard to find the right balance. Perhaps if you looked at the week as a whole, instead of getting exact balance everyday? My theory is that it averages out, so if I'm low one day, but high another, the average is still ok. If you're forcing yourself to eat, I'm not sure that's healthy for your body or your mind.

    I have a fair number of days when I'm low on calories since giving up meat, and if I'm even the slightest bit hungry I might have a small handful of raw walnuts or something. But as long as I feel good, I'm not worried about it.

    Just thinking out loud, in case it works for you.
