No, really, I am.
I go through this every time I actually force myself to really, honestly, TRULY restrict my portions. I feel like I'm being driven MAD with the need to consume. I'd almost call myself a zombie, except that makes consumption frighteningly cool (in my opinion). So, no. Just... no. My belly might be yelling "Consume ALL OF THE THINGS!" but my everything else is retorting with "We hurt ENOUGH, thanks. Shut the eff-word up."
Today, though, I was rarin' to go; dunno WHY, but I wasn't arguing about it. At 8:30 this morning, I took a walk up to the major roadway in my neighborhood and back. SparkTracker Map Thingy says I walked 1.08 miles. My pedometer tells me I walked 1,577 steps. All I know is that I am DEFINITELY out of walking shape and must get back into it. The treadmill is in my mother's room, but now it's DIRECTLY facing a TV! Providing I don't break the thing, I can put a movie in and walk until it's finished. I believe I shall start doing this.
I also took a swim in my pool for an hour and 45 minutes (105 if you wanna lump it all together). Oh-My-BOG, my everything hurts. The pain! Help me; my little wings can't make it!
Additionally, I've earned some painful calluses on the balls of my feet. I gotta get those scraped off. SO NOT looking forward to it.
One thing I'm wondering about SparkPeople: Is there a Magic Pantry program on here or something? Like, you list what foods and spices and oils and such you have in the house, and it will provide a selection of recipes you can make with those foods? Probably not. Ah, well.
At any rate: tomorrow is Junk Food Friday. As I've been craving McDonald's, mom has decided to treat me. I get that ONE THING as my junk food meal, and then nibble on whatever junky snacks I have in the house IF I want to. But Friday is the ONLY DAY I'm doing it. Saturday, it's right back to healthy stuff.
Of course, with all the local restaurants we have around, there may be some weeks the Junk Food day will switch, but that DOES NOT MEAN that Friday will ALSO be a junk food day - just that it won't be ON that day.
One thing I like about having a pool with ledges in it: I can do push-ups on them. My arms ARE FEELING IT - let me just cry about that now.
Also: I unpacked my visual journey journal! It accidentally got packed into storage instead of following me up and down the east coast. I can start up on that again! WOOT!
Alright, time to eat. I'm feeling a can of beef and veggie soup is in order.
