Like a pendulum...

Tuesday, February 05, 2013


That looks odd, but it's spelled right. Huh.

Anyway, yea. Monday I swung back in the other direction - eating well, but well below my range for the day. It wasn't intentional, I just didn't want more to eat, and didn't snack.

I know, right? Who am I and what have I done with the real Candy!??!?!

Nice. Unintentional, but nice. I'm a bit hungry today, but not the kind of 'my stomach is gnawing at my ribs' sort of hunger, just hungry.

I had a nice lunchtime walk yesterday for 2 miles, then got home and changed into walking gear for another outing. Bill decided to come with me, and we walked along streets neither one of us have been on before. We ended up with 2.21 miles, which was great. The company wasn't bad either.

A good dinner, albeit a bit later than we usually eat, and I was ready for bed by 8. A good night's sleep, and here I am, ready for today.

As I said on my status, I'm going for a short run tonight when I get home. I have all my training runs calendared and ready to go. Now if I can just stick to the plan, I'll be golden for R'n'R in May!

    Love it when the pendulum's momentum helps rather than hinders. I'm fighting the darn thing right now. LOL!

Hope you had a great run!

    I think some days are just like that... low hunger...and other days it like "Chained to the wall and starved for months" hungry...

As for the run...oooh, have fun! I haven't been able to run outside for awhile yet for various reasons, but I've at least gotten my treadmill runs in...

Can't wait to hear how your run went!

    Enjoy those low hunger days when they come! I seem to be in a constant "feed me NOW" mode lately, so I have to pay attention to when it's really physical hunger and when it's not. Way to go!!

    Way to recover from the weekend. That's the way to do it! Life is never steady and consistent, so you have to make adjustments and go with the flow!
