Not as far off the mark as I thought

Since school ended - 2 weeks ago - I feel like I've been spending a lot of time doing nothing. I have been finishing up my thesis and working on lesson plans for the new year, so that means a whole lot of time spent on my butt in front of the computer. I've been working out but it doesn't feel like it's as much activity as I normally get. But I'm wrong. Turns out I'm almost hitting my target burn everyday. Right, well almost really isn't good enough, but in this case I thought it was much worse so it is good enough. My target is 2350 a day and I've been hitting 2100 or 2200. Not bad. Not great, but definitely not bad. Just a little push and I could be making my burn every day.

Now food is another story. I haven't been eating a lot, just not great stuff. I really wanted to go completely plant based and I just can't do it. I don't know what it is, maybe it's all in my head, but two days of no meat and I literally can not get enough food. The plant based stuff fills me up but I end up with a headache and feeling like I haven't had enough. I just thought of something. What if that headache is from withdrawals? I've never heard of anyone withdrawing from meat but maybe there is something else I'm not eating that is causing the withdrawals. Hmmm...something to thing about. I will have to look into that further.

Today was weigh-in and I totally forgot. I usually weigh-in before I put anything inside my body. Too late. Guess I'll have to weigh-in tomorrow. Maybe I'll go vegan today and weigh-in tomorrow ;P

My Spiras arrive today. I'm very,very excited. I can't wait to try them out. I also can't wait to have no excuses for not running. Tomorrow I start Couch to 5K - again - and I'm running every other day no matter how it falls. Exciting....

Hubby just called. Someone told him to get a goldline salt cell for the swimming pool at the club and he had no idea what it was. Neither did I....

Guess that's it for today. I have to go workout, but I was pretty hungry and had to eat something first. It's been almost an hour, should be safe to workout now.
