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.
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!!!
