Every time.

Friday, June 08, 2012

At least weekly (lately), I have let myself go and binged on crap food. Things like chips, or refined carbohydrates, or soda (but I do go for the calorie free kind, as if this is some kind of redemption). Then I don't do anything but eat. I totally feel guilty and in a bad mood. I think it's the weather too. It's been rainy lately here and I get down and depressed. I am so over this rain and ready for greater weather.

Another thing that I am worried about is that I am going over to see my boyfriend this weekend. He knows I am trying to lose weight and train for my next race, but he just eats whatever he wants and gives me grief for wanting to wake up early to run. "Do it later" he says. Yeah, I won't do it later. :-( I love living alone, so that I can do what I want, when I want (I guess that's the selfish side of me) . If I want to wake up at 5 to go to the gym; no one will hold me back but me.

I guess all I want out of this weekend (as far as weight is concerned) is that I want to lose weight (obviously), but I won't be disappointed if I just maintain.

Happy weekend to the rest of you!

    You're BF needs to learn to be more supportive for sure.
    I say if you wanna get up at 5am, then do it! Or even better, drag him out of bed to go with you! You can always go back to bed when you're done ;-) LOL.

    Usually if I crave something I'm better off just having it. Get it out of my system and move on. I try to pick a smaller option if I can tho.

    Hi Liz!

    I completely agree! I enjoy living alone for the same reason that no one can tell me what to do and i can do what i want when i want. Maybe the BF needs to completely understand what ur getting into!

    I know how you feel about crap eating! I get those cravings too when i just want lightly salted chips or even a McDonalds Cheesburger! My bigg thing lately has been Bagels and ham/cheese crossants! I know after we eat them we feel bad for doing it and well thats that! We just need to say okay thats done and move on! Then make a promise to ourselves that next time we will find something better to have instead!

    I have found that if I find healthier alternatives to my bad cravings then i dont crave them as much! like i took soda pop (coke, pepsi etc) outta my diet in may 2011 and replaced it with Sparkling Water and then i cut up lemons and limes and add that for the extra flavor!

    Stick with it and keep working at it! So i see you say you race?? what do you do....10K 5K running or bike racing??? sounds fun and a great way to get exercise! Keep at it!
