I haven't finished the book, Brain over Binge, that I have been reading. Things have been crazy busy. I don't know if that will change anytime soon. I do feel differently towards food though, even after reading only half of the book. I have a couple other books that I ordered and will work on reading over summer. I want to use summer to really work hard to make some good solid habits. For both me and the kids.
I am starting now, but hope to follow the 17 day diet cycles starting monday. I want to spend some time tomorrow really reflecting on what I want progress I want to see over summer. What goals do I have and how will I reach them? I hope to jot those down tomorrow and make this plan concrete.
I got in 2 good jogs this week. I don't know that I will get one in tomorrow, but I am ok if I don't. I felt good about my jog today. My times have been good, for me. I am happy with the progress. I have been having pain in my left ankle and knee for the last 3 weeks or so. It varies from being painful enough to make me wince to being irritatingly uncomfortable, so I don't know what the deal is. It hurts even when walking and actually, my ankle hurts less when I am jogging versus when walking. My knee however only flares up when jogging. I jog on a county road and the edges curve downward. I jog right on the edge because the road is narrow and I want to stay out of the way in case a car sneaks up on me. I think maybe jogging on the edge is pulling awkwardly on my leg. That is all that I can think of anyway.
So fitness is still plugging along, but I need to revamp my eating. I continue to have people notice and comment on my weightloss (about 20 lbs) and while it is motivating and encouraging, it also seems to be an unwanted pressure I think. I feel that people are just waiting to see if I can keep it off. I appreciate kind words. I have never been one to like a lot of attention so anytime someone says something, I clam up and don't know how to respond. Of course I say thank you, but it seems like the more compliments I guess, the worse my eating choices become. I can't figure that one out.
Here's to summer! My first official day was today I suppose!!
