I went to a Volunteer Reception at the Spring House Grille today for recognition for my volunteer work at Roaring Spring Community Library. I had planned on getting the fruit plate with cottage cheese. Once I got there... I started thinking. I eat fruit every day. I don't really eat cottage cheese often because it makes my stomach make "funny" noises
I decided on having a slice of cheesecake. I really thought about it before I made my choice. I asked (and answered) the following questions
1. Am I going to eat this food tomorrow? (no)
2. When was the last time I had this type of food? (my birthday)
3. Will I eat this food next week? (no)
4. Will I over eat on this food? (no)
The way I looked at it is... I wasn't eat a whole cheesecake (and yeah, I have done that) I was having a piece. I don't feel guilty!!
I had an awesome workout today. I have been hitting the treadmill a little harder than usual because I am training for Mud on the Mountain. I need to get that endurance up. I walked a mile today at 2.5/mph BUT I had a 15% grade. I turned it up as high as I could. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I think hiking that monster hill by my house has helped! I am going to keep doing that every day. Either walking that hill or doing the treadmill. I also plan on running a mile too. I think that will help build me up. Of course, I am going to have to do my strength too, and focus on some upper body exercises because I need to gain some more upper body strength.
I think that is all for now
