Today was my last appointment for physio. In some ways I will miss the crew there helping to keep me accountable, but in other ways I'm glad to be done, especially since the cost went up $10 this month!
We talked about the slight discomfort I had in my knee after zumba & walk/jog intervals this weekend & my physio thinks that as long as I ease myself back into fitness activities instead of trying to jump back into them that everything will be fine. I'm to keep doing my physio moves at home and am still trying to decide about getting a foam roller. I'm thinking it can wait until I finish my degree & get a job. I'll just keep rolling out my leg with a PB jar.
Today was otherwise a really unhealthy day. I didn't exercise; just walked to/from the physio clinic (~12min each way). I got some groceries, but caved & bought a pint of Haagen Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream since it was on for $5...and then devoured half of it when I got home. I know how that happened though.
a. I ate from the container.
b. I was eating for comfort. (I spent too much time on the couch during the last 2 days in an awkward leaning position & it's felt since this afternoon like I maybe slightly pulled my right oblique ab muscle. It's annoying & uncomfortable.)
c. Distracted eating. I snacked while reading news online.
I know better than this. I just need to make a little bit more of an effort with what's left of the pint. I think this is the 1 ice cream that I really need to spend the extra money & only buy one of those tiny single serves for under $3. The economics of it are just tough bc that's 1/2C for $3 or 2C for $5 today. I'm worth it though. And it only seems to be expensive ice creams that seem to make me lose it. I've had a 2L of berry frozen yogurt in the freezer for a month & only had a 1/2C last week. And I haven't touched the ice cream sandwiches that G-Man got either.
While I did snack a little bit tonight, in general, my body seems to have realized that it doesn't really need/want anything else as I've had no desire for supper or any real meal since I finished the ice cream gorge at 3:30pm. Thanks for that, body! I'm still within my calorie & fat ranges even!
I stayed home tonight from wing night to work on my thesis & save money. While I was not *super* effective re: thesis, I did get some work done on it. I've also planned for tomorrow to be a big thesis day. I think I need to get out of the house to work on it though. I had planned to go to campus with G-Man today & work in the library, but realized it was afternoon during exams, so there'd be no spot. He has to be on campus for 10am tomorrow, so I'm going to pack things up tonight to take with me and just stay on campus until suppertime. I won't have internet access, which will be even better!
Wish me luck on getting at least the section of research most related to mine written before noon!
