Day 7- Pretty good

Friday, October 26, 2012

I managed to overcome my terrible morning feelings yesterday and turn it into a pretty great day. I saw the perfectly blue sky outside, crisp air and the perfect blanket of white snow and was randomly inspired to go on a run at lunch. It turned into a 6.5 mile sprint! I was so exhilarated by the cold air and pent up energy from not exercising. After work I bought a membership to the gym right here and did a quick strength workout that made me realize how weak and sluggish I have become. For some reason, when I don't workout consistently my arms swell like crazy, my stomach always stays pretty thin so people don't realize I fluctuate by 10 pounds every week or so, but arms and legs are like balloons. Not a fun feeling. I think I actually miss going to a gym with mirrors and just working my butt off. When I don't have mirrors around I tend to not realize that I've gone off course and last night was a brutal awakening. Oh well, resilience and patience.

Today I ate 2 muffins my friend baked for work which I count as work food, so I need to re-evaluate how to say no! I worked out this morning for 50 minutes, achieving my goal but we went out for a goodbye lunch for a coworker and I feel sick again. I did well- I got an elk burger and didn't eat the bun and only ate a few fries while they devoured everything, but I still feel heavy from the greasiness, oil and salt. Keep pushing forward, I can't let it get to me.

Today I am excited for going to a New Years Party and cheering for the wonders the next year will bring now that I will be so steady and content with who I am. I can only do better in the year to come!

    Tomorrow is another day and better food choices get easier to make once you get over not eating the stuff that people bring in or making good choices when going out to eat. I have fallen in love with fish and try to stick to that and a salad when I eat out. I don't order fries because I don't want the temptation.
    Good luck! emoticon
