Countdown to Conquest
Thursday, January 24, 2013
Today had a difficult start. I had to go for an annual test that all ladies should go for but many do not. After having to take my second dose of pain reliever, I lean toward their train of thought and wonder why on earth... no, I know why.
I resisted both the lure of the bakery (best donuts ever!) and several fast food joints one of which has lovely hot chocolate which pulled me toward the drive thru but I held steady and kept driving north toward the office. Victory for me!
I'm convinced that if I just keep having these tiny victories, I will eventually win the battle. Last night was a little easier to control the portions and hopefully, tonight will be even easier. I still ate on the high side of my calories but that's not what I focused on. When Hungry tried to get me to go for more, I made myself wait and see if I had had enough. I was fine. (Picture me kicking that hairy beast!)
Burn 325/day - over, way over.
Cut calories 300/day - within range but not quite -300
Walk 30 min/day - we walked at the mall; 22 min.
Cardio 30 min/day - fail. sigh.
My walking buddy does not seem to understand that I have to go and get back within one hour. In order to meet that requirement yesterday, we could only do one lap so my time was under for my walking goal. I'm working on a way to approach her with this issue. Since driving, parking and getting in/out of the mail takes up some of that time, we need to go right away, walk fast (for me) and hurry back. While 22 min is close, I'm not aiming for close, I'm aiming for dead on success.
