Lunching and blogging!
I'm currently nom-ing a Tai Pei Asian Garden meal...Sesame Chicken variety. They're low-cal, and chock full o' veggies...and super tasty! Plus, there have been a whole mess of coupons out there for them, so I've been getting them for a dollar and change.
Yesterday was good! I watched everything and tracked everything, made my water goal, and did a run on the treadmill (although I actually fell off...I'm fine, and yes, it was hilarious, lol). I find that watching old seasons of The Biggest Loser is really motivating for me...I'm on season 1, episode 4. I just keep getting into discussions with my bf about them, about the psychology of things, about the emotional aspect of being overweight and of having a food addiction. Plus, I get to a certain point in my run where I just can't focus on anything but the music in my earbuds and the running...
Made some yummy low-cal chicken parm last night, only ate 1.5 ounces of whole grain pasta (and felt satisfied), and ate a nice, big salad with it. My one splurge was a piece of homemade pumpkin pie, but I made the call to eat the slice after waiting, drinking water, and deciding that I was actually hungry.
I was actually most proud of myself for my response to being unmotivated when I got home from work... I flopped on the bed, realized the place I was in mentally, and reached out to my sister and one of my bffs. My bff especially really got me going... And then I caved and bought myself the new Lady Gaga song...it's a little weird, but boy, is it ever a great song to run to!! It gave me just the kick in the butt I needed... And actually, I'd originally planned to go for the exercise bike, but that song got me so motivated to run that I ran...and I increased the incline, I upped the speed for part...I really did a good job yesterday!
Now, if only I could shake this stupid depressing 'down' feeling...it's really putting a damper on my being proud of myself!
