sooo, today i was re-introduced with my treadmill. i decided i HAD to, that i did not have a choice.
Today during work i brought two slim fast shakes and a 1/2 a protein bar (the Met-rx protein plus chocolate chocolate chunk, i LOVE them lol) and i had them all before "schedule, and then jus felt so hungry, i had had about 8 cups of water (i have a 32 oz water bottle that i keep there) so i knew it wasnt thirst, but for some reason i could not shake the munchies, i still felt hungry. so i had two slices of cheese and about a 1/4 cup of cereal. i still had the hunger feeling thirty min after that so i stopped at the corner store on the way home and got a chicken patty on a bun. for some odd unknown reason i still felt hungry thirty min after that so i finished off my daughters spaghetti os (bout a cup of them left)
now what i dont understand is why i still felt hungry after all of that. i did all the tricks that i know, i drank water and waited, and then waited after the "snack" too, and still, there was the hungry/munchy feeling.
well i remembered that back when i was running on the treadmill every night that my appetite had decreased, and that scientific study showed that jogging/running reduced your appetite the next day.
well i made myself do thirty min on the treadmill, ended up doing a mile and a half, alternating jogging and walking. my fastest mile so far is 19 min. hopefully that will improve. but i knew that if i didnt do something and i had that appetite tomorrow, that all my goals for the week would be garbage. so i did it, i also did a little strength training with weights.
i am going to do my measurements today, and keep track of them,
i know i should set mini goals instead of the one big goal, so i guess my first mini goal is to reach 225. thats about 25 lbs.
i sometimes wish i could just blink the fat away one time and then work on keeping it off. but i know thats not possible so small steps it is.
i have many sets of scrubs that i miss wearing too, they are all larges and mediums and i WILL be able to wear them again.
by the way i enjoy all of your feedback soooo much!! i dont know if it notifies you when i comment back under my own blog so i figured i would throw it in here.
