I may actually be getting used to this...

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I have, for the past three days, limited myself to one Pepsi and maybe one Root Beer a day. The rest of the time I have been drinking water. Okay, that water is either the SoBe 0 calories stuff or water with Mio added to it, but those are all 0 calories and I am drinking water!

And I haven't felt the jittery, caffeine induced shakes that I used to get. I am wondering if my shakes were actually withdrawal or just psychosomatic?

And I have been better about tracking what I eat. I am still going over my daily calorie allowance, but not by as much as I used to. Yesterday I was only 235 calories over and today, unless I REALLY mess up with dinner, I will only be about 110 calories over.

The exercise is where the hard part for me is going to come in. I am getting used to eating less and that my body doesn't need as much, but I am having so much trouble motivating myself to exercise. After work all I want to do is just curl up and read or play WoW with D or just veg.

Maybe the secret is to get up when the cats actually wake me (about 5:30 am) and work out then. The problem with that is that I don't want to wake D. I'll have to talk with him about it, but if I can get into that habit, maybe I can do this. I am already down 1.5 pounds from last week just adjusting my portions, so...

    I'm with you. I am the type of person who has difficulty balancing diet and exercise, so when I focus on logging my calories and eating healthy, I tend not to exercise. I've been doing this since March 8 and have still not started exercising. I remember in the past when I was a gym junkie, my appetite was seriously crazy and even though I built muscle and endurance and felt great, I could never get rid of that layer of fat over everything, nor could I control my eating.
