On Tuesday I took a half-hour long walk on my lunch break. My back was killing me so I didn't do more, but it was nice to get a little exercise on a beautiful day. Yesterday I took the day off from exercise as I had homework. I slept poorly last night- Spencer kept waking up throughout the night and that means so did I.
I've been doing ok. Not perfect, but definitely being more mindful. I told Sam I want to lose 10 pounds in August, she looked at me like I was crazy. If we didn't snack so much at work it wouldn't be a problem! Definitely need to come up with some solutions for the mindless snacking. I've not been doing terribly at home in the evenings- last night I had a few pieces of pork tenderloin (they are small) for dinner, a few strawberries, and some cheese... after dinner I snacked on a cookie my mom made and some roasted chick peas. Nothing after dinner on Monday or Tuesday, and dinner is usually around 5:45 for me. It's just at work, I think due to boredom that my snacking is getting the better of me. Gum has lost its appeal. Maybe I should get some sugar-free hard candies.
Anyway, definitely a coffee kind of morning. Planning to exercises tonight, might not get to the gym but will do fitness videos. And possibly another walk on lunch if it's not raining, as I have nothing to do today.
