89 Days Remaining - 6B46 and Delicious Dinner
Despite the crazy day I had where I honestly never really had a break of more than a minute until 2:50 I am happy to report that I ate well all day. Eating my green beans from a can while administering tests to 3rd graders is the way to go!!
However, for dinner I fell apart.....darn Happy Joe's. Addy earned a small pizza for reading at her preschool. We devoured a large and then stopped for ice cream. Yeah, it can fall apart fast. I was so happy eating well all day. I was super excited to note that I lost a few pounds from my weigh in last week. Charting my food has helped. I am not stopping what I eat because I love food too much, but being able to see how a poor choice in eating like a blizzard really cramps the rest of the day in eating because you blow so many calories. Portion control is the other big one. I counted out what makes one serving of cereal and I just laughed. I need about 3.5 servings when I eat cereal. I am learning. I am not counting calories and being insane about it, but just making myself aware. For example, tonight I fell apart eating but it was so good that I don't care. The thing that I have to deal with now is that I am out of calories for the rest of the day.
Do I stress?, No.
I will get in my planned bike ride and be ride in line to hitting my nutrition needs. Yes, ice cream does not fuel the body nutritionally, but I get enough in to be okay. I will make changes in small increments. I would suggest charting your food for a few days. It is an eye opener to take into account all that you actually eat in a day.
Time to hang with the family and relax, let the pizza and ice cream settle before plopping down on the bike.
Oh yeah, those big old blisters I earned this weekend. Them bad boys keep filling up and I keep on popping. It is like a little feud between my feet and my fingers. I shall squeeze them on my way to victory.
No Yasso 800's tomorrow. I am opting to let this body recover by getting in my required swim workout. I will instead push hard at the 5K run this week and treat the race as my "sprint" workout. I don't run fast enough to count it as a "sprint" but I will sure try.
