My husband gave me a lovely "gift" two weeks ago. It is this wonderful cold that I've had for the last little while. You would think that since it was over two weeks ago that I got sick that I would be better by now. Sadly, this cold is like the Energizer Bunny. It just keeps going...and going...and going... It's driving me nuts! I've had enough, and even though I am still not really well enough to workout I will be running tonight.
I know what you are going to ask me next. "How did you fare over Thanksgiving weekend? Were you able to keep the calories in check?"
Dear readers, I survived Thanksgiving Day okay. I would give myself a B-. Not great, but not flunking either. The flunking would come later. As in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday... Oh yes, I ate a great deal of tasty food on those days. I didn't count the calories. I don't even want to know. All I know is that I finished Sunday with a whopping SIX sugar cookies in my belly. I gave myself the worst sugar headache in the world. Served me right!!
So...it is clear that I have fallen off the wagon.
....Yeah....not a very encouraging two weeks. I don't know why I eat so poorly when I can't workout. If I am running and exercising, I eat well. Once I stop, I pig out. That is TERRIBLE logic!
So, I am REALLY hoping for a change this week. I'll be in Milwaukee this week for work seeing people I haven't seen for a few months, and I want to look physically different. I need to work hard this week to undo the last two weeks' damage! I'm in control of this, so I need to stop sabotaging myself. It doesn't make me feel good (mentally or physically) to eat like I have been. Time to get serious. Will you keep me in check? I need some tough love!
