Day Off

Saturday, August 14, 2010

I'm taking a day off from Jillian. An active rest day.

Today was a pretty lazy day spent with my boyfriend and friends. I went to lunch at his parents' house and the food was mostly all sorts of salads and potatoes and artichokes stuffed with ground meat. I really wanted to eat more by the end, but I did not. Of course later I did not feel hungry.

This evening some friends came over for dinner. I probably ate a little too much (Saturdays I don't usually track) but I kept it in check.
Most importantly, after everyone left, I did not turn to food as I have done in weeks past. I going to change my habits. I am not going to turn to compulsive eating. It does not make things better.

I want to go for a jog, but I feel that will wake me up again (it's 9:15 pm) and will make me hungry, whereas, if I go to sleep in an hour or two, I will be fine without eating anything else. If I go for a run, I will not burn so many calories, but it will fire up my metabolism again, and I will be likely to want to stay up much later and to be hungry. I think that sometimes my efforts to exercise end up making me want to eat more than I burn off. From real hunger though - even when eating whole foods.

I think I'm best off calling it an earlier evening, accepting that I had a rest day, and allowing myself a rest day, and waking up early tomorrow in order to go for a jog and do 30 Day Shred (Sunday is usually yoga day, but it's my boyfriend's birthday, so we have plans for tomorrow night).

    Good for you, just being aware of what triggers your binge monster is the first step.
