Did much better yesterday despite eating dinner out. I had planned for about 600 calories at a restaurant, but when it got right to it, we went to Chipotle and I had a massive burrito. Managed to only eat half of the burrito while I was there, and was going to save the rest for a late night snack, but I ended up eating it about two hours later when we finally got home. No biggie, only ended up 90 calories over goal last night, which is still an improvement. Hoping today I will finish ON target, even though we plan to go out for dinner again tonight.
My son and I go out for dinner every Friday and today is no different. Fortunately I've got him excited about eating Subway, so I've logged that and I've logged my sinful breakfast and I've logged the rest of my day and I still have almost 400 calories to play with for snacks. And it's 2:47 right now and I'm not feeling particularly snacky. If I can go another 45 minutes without hopping to the fridge, I know I will be going without an afternoon snack and should be able to finish the day well enough.
Still haven't gotten to exercising yet. Frankly I hate my elliptical. It's so BORING. I only need to finish a 30 minute workout on there, but the 30 minute workouts end up being about 45 minutes the first couple of times I jump on there, and to be doing the same thing for 45 minutes is just incredibly boring. I doubt I'll ever be the runner I aspire to be. It just sounds so boring. I would like to do an exercise video. In fact I have this great low impact belly dancing one I think would be a great one to start working out to, but we really don't have the room right now. The living room is cramped as always and my bedroom is full of empty boxes. I should get around to packing more and putting this stuff away so I have the space to work out, but I'm so lazy. If there was one thing I would like more than anything, it would be motivation. I'm a lazy person by nature and if there is a way to not do something, I'm gonna find it. I wish I weren't that kind of person. Is it even possible to change something that is THAT much a core of who you are? Even when I work out, I still get lazy about necessary things like cleaning and doing the dishes and ESPECIALLY putting my laundry away. I hate doing that.
