I thought I did pretty well on calories. I went over, but not by much. I ate a LOT of veggies, probably too much. Small servings of all the "good stuff," but I know it all adds up. I weighed myself this morning, just to see and I was up 3 lbs. No big deal and I'm NOT worried or concerned.
I did get in a walk with the dogs and I did push-ups. I felt pretty good until I went to bed. Then, I felt like...well poop! I'm not sure it was from the push-ups/plank, trying to *retrain my abs by holding them in more or my eating, but I felt icky. I had lots of pressure under my diaphragm.
My younger daughter got home from Black Friday shopping around 1:30 AM and I finally got to sleep. I feel better this morning so I do think it was a combo of the amount I ate and my stomach/ab muscles. (Heck, I could have pushed my stomach to it's limit since I really don't eat big meals anymore! I eat smaller more frequent meals.)
Today, I'm eating lighter to "recoup." Normal breakfast of around 350 calories, but with a tad bit more coffee.
I'm still not running, but I will take a LONG walk today.
I want to tuck last night's feeling away and remember it so I don't ever do it again! Green tea would have helped with the eating and common sense would have helped with the rest.
Anyway, I made it through! The main thing is I was thankful. Thankful I had food to eat, a house full of love and laughter, and a body that I could exercise. I am blessed.
Have a great rest of the weekend!
*A note about "retraining my abs." Since my pants have gotten too big in the waist, I noticed that I've been sticking my stomach out to hold them up, even with a belt. So I am holding them in more so I can retrain my brain and my abs. Funny how things work. I guess I need to buy some smaller pants and belt.! That's not a bad thing!
