All in all, yesterday was pretty good - considering that I spent most of it running errands! And when I came home I tackled our burn pile - so spent a couple of hours outside raking garden plots and burning the old dry pile.
The big FAIL was last night. I did log my food... I
was short a couple of proteins still after dinner and I didn't get my
carbs until after lunch.... I noticed this as an observation. After
dinner, I did the dishes and noticed that I was hungry. I decided to
have a bottle of water and my shower and see if I could wait it out. I
was ravenous after my shower... but said... hey, I can do this.
trip to the kitchen was disaster. I snagged a piece of cake that was
on the counter. Not even very good (which is WHY my family hadn't
gotten to it already!) and DEF did not handle the hunger issue... so I
ate a piece of string cheese..... followed by a KIND bar..... and after
that.... bread with peanut butter. Just couldn't seem to fill up.
Consequently I had all those calories - AND all that food to digest as I
went to sleep.
So this morning I have a nasty headache and am
grouchy. I learned - okay RE-learned - that a) processed sugar products
(CAKE) do not fill me up, they only add calories and hunger to my
already hungry self and b) I sleep and wake a whole lot healthier and
happier if I stop eating within a couple of hours before I sleep and c)
my FEELINGS of hunger are not always that. I am not yet in a place
where I can trust my FEELINGS alone.
I do have my first mile done
this morning and will do a cardio dvd in a few minutes. I am home
today so will see what opportunities I can find to get more movement in!
- so the dvd didn't happen - mostly because of a houseful sleeping
young adults and then getting ready for the my week getaway at the
beach. But in spite of the cold - I did get another half mile.. and
when I remember that yesterday was supposed to be a rest day (and I did a
dvd anyway).. well, that's grace :-) Food went very well and is all
logged.... I have a snack lined up for tonight IF NEEDED.... good
progress! Leaving Saturday morning for the week - and busy much of
tomorrow so still a good bit to do!
