I put on my activity feed that I'm having some motivational issues in the food department, and Anajak kindly asked if I wanted to share...so I am. :-)
This week I finally went back to the gym. I'm happy to be back actually. Monday wasn't a full day of gyming, but yesterday I made up for it with 75 minutes there--including 60 minutes of cardio and almost 20 of weights (I'm rounding down). The gym isn't my problem at the moment though. My eating habits, however, are.
I wish I could say it is because I'm hungry, but I'm not. I'm just bored. Frankly, after all the excitement of my weekend away real life is a bit pale. Part of this is, I'm sure, because I'm not 100% back into my normal routine of the last few months, and I'm also not having an easy time adjusting to fall...mainly because fall has yet to arrive here! It's throwing me off! It's as warm as summer during the day but all the fruit choices are awful. I'm not a big fruit person in the fall. I like apples, but those get old after awhile...and pears aren't terribly easy to bring to work.
Basically, I just need some adjustments. I'm not spending as much time on Spark People lately, and I need to get back to that because it does help frankly. Writing things down and having somewhere to put all my thoughts about the process of losing weight definitely helps.
I'm just a little off lately I guess. For example, I can't get into my usual lunches. Cottage cheese just doesn't sound that great to me, so I haven't eaten that for the last week and a half. However, it is probably my best bet during the day because it is filling, has lots of protein, and is nicely salty. I just seem to be eating all the time when I don't actually feel like eating. It isn't good.
I might also be pre-menstrual...but of course, we know how that went last month. I PMSed for three weeks beforehand. Not exactly conducive to good eating habits.
I'm at a bit of a loss I guess...anyone have any recommendations to get me back on track for my eating?
