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'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''s really putting a damper on my being proud of myself!

    The change in weather and the days getting shorter is impacting my mood currently. I'm working on ways to keep trying to pull out of the "down" mood. Hang in there and WTG on the choices you made! Keep pushing forward.
