Day 13

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Today was better. Not perfect but better. Progress is progress. I, surprisingly enough, stayed in range today. I have 2 more calories left! I didn't eat healthy though. Junk. Blah! I am proud that I tracked it all though...and am lucky I didn't go over! I did have an urge to binge and I managed to fight that. I had a hair appt today at 10 am so last night I was thinking of all of the lunch possibilities since I would be in town and could grab something. Chinese food, no Mexican, no Chili's, no Italian.....no one of each! No. No. No.. Crazy talk. I am crazy. Even my husband has admitted that I've got to have some kind of unnatural addiction to food. It has too much power over me. Anyways, I did not binge on everything. I came straight home and ate leftovers. Even if I had gone way out of calorie range for today, I would have been ok with that just because I was so proud of not binge eating on takeout!

Getting my hair done felt good. My hair is really thick and so as it grows out it becomes wild and out of control. Very heavy. It takes forever to dry and a lifetime to style. My hairdresser is awesome at cutting it, but I never have time to go. Last time I went was may. I was long overdue! I haven't had my highlights done in well over a year and I have been going back and forth as to whether I wanted to get them done again. I did and I am glad I made that decision. My hair looks so much better. Less dull. It's amazing what a good hair cut can do to one's spirit. If I weren't pms-y, I'd be feeling great!

One other thing I must add before I call it a night, I weighed this morning. I am sticking to weighing 2 times a month (at most). I like it. I don't get as discouraged as I did when I was weighing weekly. I can just focus on good choices as opposed to focusing on pounds. Today's weigh in scared me because I have been eating poorly for the last 2 weeks or so. I tried to track at least half of the time while I was visiting my parents, but I still didn't feel great about everything I was eating. Then since I have been home I have been stress eating. On to the point, I weighed in 177. Not bad. Not as bad as I thought, I should say. I gained a pound over the last 2 weeks (my last weigh in was 176).

Now I am looking ahead to making good choices, exercising more, and drinking more water so that in two more weeks I can see results. A fellow sparker sent me running shoes as a spark goodie today and it made me feel really motivated! We both did the C25K jogging thing a while back and while I have lost some ground, I am still doing way better than when I was first starting. It made me think back to where I started and how far I have come.

It also makes me think of all the potential I have in the coming year! I'm not a huge resolution person, but this year's going to be great! I know this because I'm gonna make it great!
