Sunday morning.

Sunday, November 24, 2013

I had kind of a rough night sleeping. I woke up a few times, but did go back to sleep. I've laid in bed for a couple of hours this morning, just laying here watching tv, and thinking. I'm planning to go to the gym in a little while. It opens at 10, but I want to have some coffee first. It's my first day off in six days (I've worked 12 out of the past 13 days), so I don't want to rush through my morning. It's been really nice to just lay here in the quiet. My mood seems better this morning. I can tell my eyes are all puffy and swollen though, from all the crying I did last night. My head hurts a little bit, too. I will take some Motrin, have some coffee, and go to the gym.

First, I wanted to write a little bit about my calories for last week, and why I got so upset last night. Here is my calorie run-down:

Mon 11/18: 1110
Tues 11/19: 1433
Wed 11/20: 1493
Thurs 11/21: 1334
Fri 11/22: 1173
Sat 11/23: 1821

Weekly Average: 1394

So....that's that. I honestly don't even know what to say about it. I hope it's not a huge deal that I ate 1800 calories yesterday, but if it is...I can't do anything about it at this point. My sister-in-law said I'm doing great, writing down every single "BLT" (bite, lick, and taste). I even write down when I eat something as small as two peanuts. She said that since my average is just under 1400, and since I was low on my calories on Friday, that it really does balance out. I just don't know if it's my food addiction/denial telling me that it's ok, or if it is the logical part of my brain telling me it's ok. Is it really ok? Am I doing well? I think so. I really do. For the first time in a long time (...maybe ever...) I feel like I'm doing things the right way.

Well...I'm off to start this brand-new day.

    I think you done great. I go by my weekly average, more so than my daily. Some days I need more calories than I do others. So my daily totals are up and down. I think zig-zagging is the way to go. Keeps your body guessing, so it doesnt get adjusted to the same total everyday. I think that will help also, to keep from getting in a plateau. Keep up the good work.
    PS Are you getting any wintry mix this week? Looks like here in Wilkes we are going to get some Monday night and Tuesday morning. emoticon
