My life, take 2

Yesterday did not go as planned. I did get my workouts in, weights and a short bike ride, so that was good. The food was not so good. By the time I was done working out and showering and everything, it was almost 11:30. Hubby and I decided to just go run some errands and then go to lunch. I was adamant about where I wanted to go because I did not want to get something fried and goopy. There's a local chain that has this great veggie sandwich that I love, so I insisted we go there. Everything was going fine, I didn't even have a beer at lunch, until the manager, a friend of ours, bought us dessert. Brownies with chocolate sauce and ice cream. This is not good. Luckily we got it to go and I was insistent that I wasn't going to eat it. Chocolate does terrible things to my body and generally it's not worth it. Plus, I've been eating way too much junk lately. Well, it got home and began to call my name. Hubby tasted it and next thing you know the bugger is gone. We ate it. I pretty much felt like crap the rest of the day and this morning is not fun. Let's just say I'm suffering from intestinal distress. Ugh!!!!

One thing that did hit me yesterday, or last night, is that I've fallen into old patterns and mindsets. I ate the brownie thing yesterday afternoon and so I thought to myself that I just wouldn't eat dinner. That's wrong. That's not the way to do this. My initial thoughts this morning, since I feel so crappy, were that I would fast today. When I thought about it a little more I realized that's not the thing to do. My eating habits have been crap lately. I think the most important thing is to get back into good eating. So instead of fasting I'm going to eat right today. Good, healthy food in small portions. I'm going to eat at least 4 times today and I can almost guarantee by the end of the day I'll feel better.

Instead of 'working' on weight loss this week, I'm going to focus on getting back into my regular routines. Eating right, working out, sleeping 8 hours. Those are the things that will not only help me lose weight but will make me feel good. So that's the plan and it starts today.

Keep in mind too that you shared the brownie - so you didn't consume all of the calories you possibly could - moderation is a key to healthy eating - starvation and deprivation don't work in the long run.

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
