Okay after last night’s episode which involved lots of crying, wailing, thinking and going to a movie (YAY Harry Potter)? I have come up with an outlined plan for going back to school on Monday. I have been whining and complaining about the weight I have gained. But in all honesty, I have been eating like a madwoman. I could blame it on my exercising but how does eating 20 cookies make a better runner ha. I have constantly said oh yes-I’ll change and stop eating them and has it happened?
No, no it hasn’t. I sound like a smoker that just can’t quit. To think I always thought it would be so easy. Go cold turkey and you won’t miss it. Well-I enjoy cold Thanksgiving turkey for one and two I need to let go. Food shouldn’t control your life, it should make you happy without worry. Here are my goals revisited:
1. I will weigh myself every day. For now this is what will get me back on track. Having 10 pounds glaring at me (just like when I was running and my legs were rubbing together.)
2. I will try something new at least 3 times a week. Experiment-live a little, new recipe new something.
3. I will have a different breakfast once a week that does not include French toast, waffles or PANCAKES. I will not have any of them for lunch or dinner either. I really do need to learn my life will go on if I don’t have the food at all during the day. I will name it weird Wednesdays. Which brings me to my next objective, please share your favorite breakfast recipe. Advertise it here and I promise you, I will try it.
4. I will also stop complaining like it’s my job. There is no one to blame and make excuses for. And who enjoys complaining blogs? Not I.
Goal time: January 1st. I leave for Puerto Rico with swim team. We go on a yearly training trip and will be in a bathing suit all day everyday for 7 days. I will be confident enough to rock it. Since I have gained this weight, I have been stressed and not confident in myself and I have been having low self esteem.
It isn’t because of the actual weight that I put on but more of how fast It happened and how I did it.
But that isn’t the only reason believe me. Feeling very full all the time isn’t the most pleasant feeling in the world. So I have changed my time frame to lead into January 1st.
So I thought I was doong well by going to the pool…I wish I had actually looked at the practice beforehand.
2X1000 Free Interval (12 minutes)
Those timed 1000s actually weren’t as bad I thought. We hadn’t done any the entire season so I knew it was a matter of time. Now just weight for the 2 mile swim we will have sometime this year.
Anywho-I’m up on the eastern shore of VA at my parent’s other house. My mom is doing a craft show so we decided to haul our butts up with her and visit the other house. I shall post a blog tomorrow or sometime soon of all my delicious eats up here. I love love love seafood and the Eastern Shore of Va/Maryland has some of the best Seafood in my opinion/.
What is your favorite type of seafood?
I like salmon, flounder, crab and scallops. I also really enjoy imitation crab at Chinese Buffets which really bothers Aram. I find it delicious.
Today I have done really well and avoiding any situations that have put me in danger of binging. I also been out of the house for a good portion of the day though. J
