Day 3 of my DietBet4

Thursday, April 03, 2014

This morning was an interesting morning. I jumped on the scale and it was at 234.4 - where I was on Tuesday morning. 10min later, I jumped on again, and it was back down to 233.8. I know my digital scale has some fluctuations at times, and that's not what I'm focusing on.

Rather, I'm focusing on something else. My weight on day 3 has not really moved since day 1. It has not gone up, which is good. It has minimally dropped, and that is good too.

My fitness on Day 1 was as much as I could have done. I'm good with that.

My fitness on Day 2 was something I was questioning. I really pushed my run that day, but that's all I did for fitness. Maybe it was just not enough. Maybe I actually was able to "out eat" my fitness that day. I watched my nutrition all day long, and only let my guard down at the end of the day. I let myself have some extra ice cream.

I don't believe in "do not have" foods, unless there is a medical reason. I have enough foods I am allergic to and have to avoid. I don't say absolutely no to foods I can have.

I try to exercise moderation. I ate more than I should have. I know that. I tracked every bite of it too. I'm not hiding it.

It's just something for me to learn from.

So now on my running days, I need to not only closely watch my portion sizes, but I should also try to get in more fitness. Options include fitness videos, yoga, heck, even a simple walk. Anything to get my HR up a bit and my body burning calories again.

This has just strengthened my resolve for today.

Today's plan:
emoticon Drink lots of water
emoticon Eat freggies - already have one down. Have ingredients to make a nice asiago pear salad for lunch/supper starter.
emoticon Spin class again today. I'm going to push myself to see if I can keep up with the rest of the group this time.
emoticon I'm not really sure what my second activity will be today, but I do have a visit at work this afternoon that involves getting my girl physically active - walking, yoga, something.

Am I going to do something more on my own? I think I am going to try. Mostly because my activity at work is geared to very low level activity - just getting started in a program level. Personally I need a little more.

So that's my plan for today.

What's your plan for today to help you reach your goals?
