1/31/14 I'm A Rebel (not in a good way)

Friday, January 31, 2014

Checking in because I said I was going to daily for accountability. And I failed yesterday. Everything. Well, everything except accepting my failure and moving on.

I did ok with eating at work, that's not usually the problem. I let myself start to get hungry right before leaving though, and I had a nail appointment essentially right after work. And then it started snowing, which zaps all motivation. So I was starving by the time I was done at the salon and my planned dinner (which wasn't super healthy anyway) would take an hour. Since I still haven't gone to the store, I had no back up easy meals. I picked up Philly Cheesesteaks for the boy and me on my way home from the salon and of course that meant I wasn't going to run either.

I recognized that I was just rebelling against myself and I wasn't going to do anything productive, so I curled up with a movie and the boy and I went to bed at a reasonable time. Since I didn't fight myself, or feel really horrible about my bad decisions, I woke up ready to tackle another day. I tracked everything yesterday so I can see the consequences as facts. I went over my recommended calories by 200 or so AND I didn't burn the 500 I had wanted. So I'm about 700 calories behind this week. That is about a .2 lbs. Those are facts. I will try to remember them the next time I want to rebel against myself.

Tomorrow's run is planned for 9 miles, with today's snow that will all have to be on a treadmill. I'm going to take it one mile at a time and if I have to do it in two sessions, so be it. The longest I've gone on the treadmill is 5 miles but I'm going to try to have both my book and some podcasts to keep me entertained, maybe a movie or show? It should take me about two and a half hours. I really need to remember to weigh in tomorrow, normally Friday is my day but I forgot!

    emoticon I think its great that you didn't spend time beating yourself up. You looked at what you did in a logical way and figured out the consequences. Now you'll fix it. Great job!!!! emoticon

    emoticon I love the part on "take it one mile at a time"!! That is an emoticon attitude to have and KEEP! Small increments of "activity/fitness" has really spurred me on this month. When I tell my self I only have to do this for 10 minutes - then before I know it 20 have passed. Or worse scenario I do a few "10 minute SPARKS (as I like to call them) through out the day and WA-LLA - I've racked up over 30+ minutes before the days end! emoticon

    Speaking of being a rebel - I have always HATED the dreaded "e" word - HATE HATE HATE it!!! But by saying "activity" gives it a softer tone to me - emoticon Ya like there's a difference emoticon But hey these "small chunks" have been keeping me motivated, so much so I've almost accomplished 10,000+ steps every day this month / January! So in essence all of this year - 2014!! Still need to get my boost a walking to complete today's to make my RECORD!!! emoticon
