I don't know why I'm being strange the past few days, but I have been unwilling to eat early in the day. Like breakfast is a banana and my morning coffee. I'm hoarding all my calories until the end of the day! & then when I'm having dinner, I can't eat enough to hit the bottom of my range because I get full. So weird.

Today, I knew this was a terrible idea but I did it anyway. As of 1pm, I'd burned about 700 calories off from exercise, and had barely eaten 100. I had a hard time catching my breath during my workout, and actually cut it 10 minutes short since I wasn't feeling well. DUH. I'm still ridiculously low, and I don't know what I want to eat!

Something I noticed today is that my "capri" pants are looking longer than usual. They just skimmed the knee when I cropped them, and now they're hanging below it. I kept pulling them up, and then it dawned on me!!! They're hanging differently because I'm a little smaller now. Really? It feels like it took me forever to make that connection! Haha.

I had a difficult time getting motivated today, this morning I took a 30 minute walk and it was nice! A big hill in my neighborhood that has been a challenge for me was really not too bad today! I felt my muscles working, and I was winded, but nothing like I was the last time I climbed it. Awesome. I later decided I should still do my circuit training vid, but really didn't want to!

I convinced myself that this was a "tipping point" kind of day, and I needed to push myself in order to keep making progress. Today makes or breaks me, so I decided to get made. Momentum or no, I've gotta keep going!

    Good for you deciding to be made. That's a hard thing to do sometimes and you did it. As for your capris getting lower I love it! That's a great NSV and such a good way to figure it out. I tend to hoard my calories too. I don't know why, but I would rather eat a big dinner than a big lunch or breakfast. One thing that has helped me is adding one more piece of fruit, or throwing a cheese stick in as a snack. I'm sure it will work itself out in a week or two. Keep up the great work!
