I must confess... I have let myself down. I have lost sight of who I am becoming, I have been unfaithful checking blogs and team stuff, I have eaten food I know is not good for me, and I have all but stopped exercising. Here's the 'skinny' (pun intended)...
Okay, so this weekend's eating has been a total disaster. I haven't "binged", exactly, I've just grazed on crappy things... ALL WEEKEND LONG. And I know better. And I know why (I think).
I am out of my routine. I haven't been exercising, so I've gotten stiff and down in the back again. My behind has been parked in the Lazyboy every single day while I finished my finals and my paper. I actually ate relatively well while I was studying and writing, but once I finished, boy, it was over. I went to a pool party with the youth group at church and ate a ton of pizza, cookies, and fritos. Yesterday I ate cheese popcorn, pot roast, lemon meringue pie, and not one french bread pizza, but two. Yes, TWO. Today we ate out with my husband's boss after church (Mexican... *drool*). I'm within my limits today, at least, but still on the high side.
My body seems to be reacting to my relief at the end of this philo class. It's like it says, woo-hoo! Let's celebrate! But it's not like I'm eating mindlessly, I feel like I'm actually hungry. My stomach was actually growling and everything, and I tried to wait it out, but to no avail. My weight is still neutral, so at least that is a good thing. I would like to think that my body just needed those calories, but that's a lie. It never needs calories from junk.
But anyway, it's over (I hope). I'm making a conscious effort to go to bed early so that I can try to recover from the past week. I'm sure that the lack of rest is part of why I've been so hungry and craving breads and sweets (because I usually don't crave sweets ever). So I'm going to try to get my body back into a routine: sleep, water (been drinking lots and lots of coffee), veggies and lean meat, and exercise! I probably won't even be able to do 10 minutes on the elliptical. Gotta get back up there:)
So there it is, my confession. I have eaten like a boss this weekend. Now I have to get myself back under control and back on track. I have given all my fat clothes away, I can't gain weight!!
Hope you guys have a great week! I start a biology class (we're studying micronutrients!!) and a government class tomorrow. I'm excited!
