Today, one of my classes happened to get out a half hour early. This is my class right before my hour lunch break, then I have another class in the afternoon. So, today instead of going to the cafeteria for lunch like I usually do, I went to the gym instead. On the way I had part of my lunch (a banana and a nutragrain bar) and I worked out on the elliptical and the cable machine for about 40 minutes. Then I stopped by home to change really quick and went to my afternoon class! With my yoga class this morning, my walking, and my gym trip, I've burned nearly 800 calories!
I hope I can keep up this motivation. My family doesn't seem to be as supportive of my weight loss goal as I thought that would be. Most people get pushback when they eat crappy food, but I've been getting pushback when I don't. Last night I opted to have a salad and an apple rather than the delicious dinner that had been prepared. It led to some hurt feelings from the person who had made it, because they felt like they had put in all of that hard work and was rejected. I felt really guilty, but I also don't want to not lose weight. The way they felt was completely understandable, but I'm not sure how to fix this situation.
