This weekend was so crazy I didn't get a chance to evaluate myself on my goals from last week. I totally blew it Friday & Saturday with the Bat Mitzvah celebration, but since I was designated driver at least I didn't have alcohol calories. I did get to say to myself a few times "you could have done a lot worse," but I did say to myself "why did you eat that? it wasn't even that delicious!" a few times too, so I say it was overall worse than I wanted it to be.
Sunday I had a 10-mile run, and forgot how completely fatigued I get after a run like that (haven't done one since last fall). To make it worse I did it on an empty stomach and didn't bring along any gel or water to take during it... this all resulted in my ordering a small (thin crust, I estimate 900 calories) pizza and salad for lunch, and eating a HUGE piece of cake at night, resulting in a day of over 3,500 calories... WHY?! I felt like crap all day with a ball of food in my stomach, I had non-stop diarrhea from the run, and I went out with my husband for 2 beers at night, which only made everything worse.
I am NOT going to do the same thing this weekend, I have another 10-miler scheduled Sunday, and I will make sure to eat only wholesome foods for the rest of the day.
I have been battling some serious hunger last week and today/yesterday... it's been making it difficult to want to eat well. I am trying to work through it, coffee actually seems to help a lot, but I don't want to get addicted, I already think my one 12oz cup in the morning is enough.
My goal this week is to be GENTLE on myself. I really messed up this weekend, and I can't take what back is done. This morning I actually laid down and enjoyed 10 minutes of silence before leaving for work, after my husband left for work. It really helped me get in the right mindset for the day. I need to focus on taking more time like that for myself to regroup.
Good luck everyone, the new house sounds pretty cool Kashii, I hope you can get some rest from it too... cleaning and painting are some of the most tiresome activities : )
Polish: I would LOVE to write "I met my goals," congrats on meeting yours!!!
My new goals from today to Saturday:
1) Stay within my calories every day and make up for the 1780 kcal positive differential I have already accumulated this month!!! (I know it's not all numbers, but this is something that will really motivate me)
2) Get in some "me" time every day.
