POA Day 12 AKA Happy

Monday, November 07, 2011

Funny, normally after eating the way I did last night, I wouldn't have had that emotion this morning. :o} I actually didn't binge, it was just I had too many calories and didn't track. That tends to happen on the weekends, though lately I haven't eaten enough on the weekends, so I guess I thought I'd be just fine. I ate at BWW (Buffalo Wild Weekends) for dinner with supper. Later last night, I had some hotdish my mom sent home with me, mainly because I was bored and reading, and reading and eating go hand in hand to me. I know what to do to combat this (go to bed or do something else that doesn't trigger eating when bored at night). I plan to do just that!

I did have a lot of fun this weekend, even though I worked yesterday, and I wasn't so obsessed about things, mainly my weight, or more specifically my weight loss. I have a feeling that will mean a gain tomorrow morning, but I am not going to worry about it. All I can do is focus on today, and this moment. It's when I obsess about the future or the past that I forget about today. And, I didn't weigh myself this morning, and I plan not to do so at any point today. Tomorrow is my weigh-in day, and I'll wait until then. Last week was 170 pounds. I would be happy with a loss, but realistically I would be happy with my number being under 172. I am trying to back away from it all being about the number and more about how I am feeling. I do feel bloated, but physically workout-wise I feel fantastic. I went to the gym this morning and put in an hour on the elliptical. I pushed myself and got in 5.5 miles, which is more than I usually do on there. I felt strong.

So, my Plan Of Action for today:

1. Track my food intake today, all of it, and strive to stay in my calorie range.

2. Cardio for 1 hour (elliptical), 2 walks, and get in all of my ST including everything SP has in store for me today plus as many pushups I can get in, and also try to get in lunges and squats.

3. Water!!!

4. Focus.

5. Stay away from the Internet but for my lunch hour, and 30 minutes before bedtime. I need to start limiting myself because I obsess about SP, FB, and DM (daily mile). I check them multiple times a day and the time I spend on it adds up.

Happy Monday, Sparkland!!!

Miles: 19/2500
