Another Week

Friday, March 16, 2012

Well, I have had a pretty interesting week. Well, I should qualify that statement by saying that this week was emotionally interesting, rather than eventfully interesting.

Last weekend the eating was pretty, pretty, pretty bad. I ate about, oh, I don't know, half a chocolate babka? For those of you who don't know what a babka is, don't find out. For those of you who do know what babka is, you know my pain.

I decided that I needed help. I was sick of repeating this ridiculous weekend food orgie and needed to meet with someone who was going to help me overcome this. I consequently made an appointment with a certified nutrition counselor to get some help. I told her that I need help mostly with getting over my obsession with food rather than education about what's healthy. I am going to start my official appointments in about a week and a half. I am going to be following a fairly strict eating regimen, but I am hoping it will take some of the stress away from wondering what I should be eating.

This week I was good, though, and either was within my calorie range or below. Normally I do not like to be so far below my calorie range, but after last weekend I don't feel too bad. Also, it's not like I was intentionally starving myself as much as I just wasn't hungry.

In other events, I signed up for a 5k and started training! I am debating whether or not I should invest in good shoes. They are just so expensive, and who has $100 lying around for shoes? Well, some people do, obviously, but not moi.

Anyway, let's plan for a good weekend! Like they say, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

    That is kind of exciting to be meeting with the nutrion counselor. I hope it helps and gives you the tools you need.

    As far as the shoes. Investing in a good pair of shoes is a great idea. See if you like running and want to keep doing it. If so, I would save up for a good pair.

    Hope you have a great weekend!!
