It's been over a week since I've written...and honestly, things in the weight loss department are not good. Maybe its because the period-monster has had me in her clutches all week but I've been constantly eating poorly and feeling like doing nothing. This Wednesday (the day I usually run) there was a huuuge thunderstorm. And thunder/lightning is the only weather I will not run in. It's just not safe! I do not have a treadmill or anything (when my work office moves to the new building which is SUPPOSED to happen this month, there is a gym but...not yet) so running was impossible. The weather in CT has been all around nasty lately...humid, hot, stormy.
Much to my delight this morning, it was a delicious 54 degrees and COOL! WOOO! What a GORGEOUS morning!! Even though I was up late last night hosting a Hunger Games/Taco Party (healthy tacos made w/ turkey, whole grain shells/wraps, light sour cream, and plenty of veggies! Score on that one!) I got my butt up and went at 7am! It was sooo nice to run in good weather.
Overall, though, I haven't been eating well. I found myself getting into a habit of eating well all day, drinking my water...then bingeing at night. I am not even bingeing on unhealthy things! I find myself finishing off 2 bell peppers with half a container of hummus, or eating an extra serving of Quinoa Basil Cakes that I made from a pinterest recipe. WTF. And a couple times I went out to eat with friends...it just isn't working out for me. I can feel my clothes are getting snug again and I DO NOT LIKE IT!
I am back on the wagon...I just need to find my center and my motivation again. I CAN DO THIS. I WILL DO THIS. I just need to convince myself of that...I need to take it one day at a time!
Happy Sunday ya'll and enjoy my sweaty mug post-run!
