I'm Starving! This week's goals...

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

Man, this whole "eating the right thing thang" has me STARVING! I know what Sparkers will say...I'm not eating enough etc. etc. etc. Fact is this - my body has gotten accustomed to eating absolute CRAP over the last um 4 weeks or so and that crap is high in calories and when you reduce those calories, guess what you "feel hungry." I am not depleting my body of nutrients or even close to starvation mode by any means but it IS all about the deficit no matter what you wanna believe...powerful message I suppose most likely a symptom of hunger.

Anyhow, instead of making this a monthly thang, I have decided to break down my goals weekly as I do anyway in my paper journal so that I have to keep coming back here to update and remain accountable. The week has started out well, I picked a marathon for this year, the race will be in VT on 5/17/14 which puts me at exactly 18 weeks of training. Today was WK1D1 of training which was nice simply because I now have a plan and bonus it is a nice distraction right now from the scale which does not seem to be moving fast enough for my liking...even though I am starving!

Anyhoo...that's the belly talking here are the goals...

#1. No cheese this week - that means no Cumby's stops for string cheese whatsoever
#2. Vegetables with both lunch and dinner, no skipping
#3. Get a food scale or retrieve my old one from my other office
#4. Do all prescribed workouts for marathon training even if it is cold
#5. On Friday, do not order out for lunch AND only healthy carb pasta for dinner in prep for 10M run on Saturday
#6. CLEAN EAT!! At minimum M-F

    I have not given up eating the crap food yet! I will admit it! So you are WAY ahead of me on that one.... although, to be fair, I can't go to the grocery store b/c the ex has custody of the car (don't ask - he told me I could have it but just wants to use it till he gets his mid-life crisis-mobile, but it's been over 2 months already) so all that is in the house is JUNK! GAH!

Hope you are staying warm!

    That's the worst feeling. It's almost like the stomach is going throu crap food withdraw & won't seem full until you eat crap food. It's hard pushing though & not giving in, but you can do it. Have you tried drinking a glass of water when you feel that starved?

Love your idea of breaking it down weekly instead of monthly. It seems less stressing that way....if that makes sense??!!

WooHoo on picking your marathon. You'll rock it.
