I hate how our minds can play tricks on us. After a week of less-than-stellar (okay, crappy) eating - and drinking! - I have felt like a total pudgeball. Even running the half marathon Sunday didn't make me feel lean and mean. I missed last Friday's weigh-in, which may or may not have been Freudian, so I won't weigh again until this Friday. Yesterday afternoon, I felt that my running tights were tighter and I had a little muffin-top going on. This morning, more of same. But then I got dressed for work and my pants feel just like they always do, no tighter, no looser. What is up with that?? Makes me crazy!
So my goals for this week are:
plan lower calorie lunches - I tend to fudge more on lunch than breakfast or dinner
work out every day - run in the mornings and either walk or RIPPED in the afternoons
drink more water - I tend to shy away from this because it wreaks havoc with my workouts when I keep having to take a break to pee :-( But it does also help manage my snacking urges.
stay away from the high-calorie stuff that's still in the house - tortilla chips, I mean you!
Those are my goals for this week. I'll weigh again on Friday and then decide if I need to tighten down even more on the caloric intake, or if I'm right on track and don't need to take any drastic measures. One way or the other, I successfully dropped the weight, by golly, I know I can keep it off!
