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!
