Day 10

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

No workout today but I think this has by far been the hardest day of the new regimen. Today is a low calorie day (trying to get to between 1500 and 1600) since I am not exercising and have been STARVING all day. Also, being the first day back to work since I started this, it was really difficult not to fall back into all habits. In fact there was one gumball machine in the plant that I habitually buy a Nerds gum ball out from and caught myself stopped in front of it, fishing through my pockets for a quarter t get one before I even realized what I was doing.

As hungry as I was though, when I sat down to dinner, I ate one bowl of soup and was full, I am sitting here now at not quite 1400 calories for the day and need 227 to get to my minumum goal but really do not feel like eating a thing.

As for the no workout day, I've had some anxiety about that too. It's like I've doing great for 10 days and I'm afraid that taking a day off is the first step into falling out of the routine. Intellectually, I know my biody needs a break, but emotionally, it feels like I am copping out.

I guess in short, if I reduce my calories I develop neuroses and paranoia. Looking forward to tomorrow to get back on track and see how I do fitting the workouts into a workday!

    You can do this. Just relax and flow with the day off. You need it once in a while.
