Well, I did the C25K on Saturday and yesterday felt like crap. So, that goes on the back burner until my lungs heal a little bit more. I felt fine after the calisthenics on Thursday, so I think I will try to jump back on that tomorrow.
I think I have figured out why I am having trouble not being able to work out right now. One is that I am obviously obsessive. Working on that! The other is that when I can't work out, I feel like I'm not doing anything toward my weight loss goal. So NOT true! Every choice that I make about what to put in my mouth is doing something toward my goal. Every time I make myself eat breakfast to move my metabolism along and to avoid bingeing later out of starvation is doing something.
I am still reaping the results from my return to fitness, short though it has been so far. Yesterday, I was able to help my mother put together a futon without my back killing me. I was able to crouch and move around on the floor more easily.
I have to continue to remind myself that this is not a quick fix. It is a life change. For that reason, it is ok if it takes time. It should take time. It's ok.
Staying up late last night, I fought off some late night snacking cravings. I know it's worse when I am staying up late and I had to finish some school work. I ended up having a protein shake around 12:30am. It staved off the worst of my pangs and I still ended up being within my calorie range for the day.
Today, I'm gonna remind myself to go easy on Me. To breathe. To be present in the moment. To enjoy what I have and where I am....today.
