Difficult Few Days
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Last weekend we had a birthday party and a potluck. Last night, a fundraiser for our son's school at a local restaurant. This next weekend, Easter. Lots of heavy, rich foods and still not able to engage in aerobic exercise due to my knee injury. Still keeping up with my PT, core, and upper body exercises, but those don't raise my heart rate or burn as many calories. I'm trying to keep what I can track as low as possible, but I admit that I'm feeling a bit yucky right now. Usually when I overeat, I know my exercise will help me counter it. Right now, I'm just overeating.
I'm also trying to make better choices in difficult situations. OK. I splurged at the birthday party, but at the potluck I watched how much I took and didn't go back for seconds. At the restaurant, I ate only half of the serving they gave me. This weekend will be very tough, as my MIL cooks for an army although there are only six of us, and I always feel badly that there is so much food left over - and she pushes the leftover off on us. I'll try to remain strong.
