January 9th, 2010

Well I week down. Overall I think it went very well. I'm pleased with getting up this week and working out. I'm actually starting to not feel so full. It helps that I'm tracking my food intake and not eating 2 hours before bedtime.

I do find that I'm constantly thinking about food. Not that I want to eat all the time but I'm thinking about what I put in my mouth and how that's going to affect my daily calorie intake. For instant we went out for dinner last night and had a steak, salad and sweet potato fries. Yes, I know we ate out twice this week but sometimes it's a reality in my life and I've got to learn to deal with it. Everyone else had dessert and they kept telling me to try some. I knew that if I had some I'd have another bit. Just knowing that I ate EVERYTHING on my plate even though I was full about 3/4 of the way into made me think about what I'd done.

It's interesting when you encounter this type of scenario because people want you to enjoy the food with you but it's hard for them to accept that you are okay not having a bit. I said "no thank you" about 5 times and it still was hard for them to register and accept my answer. I got through it. When I got home I did want to eat, not because I was hungry but because I was bored. It's been my habit for the past year. I'm happy to report that I didn't eat. Instead I went downstairs (if you think I'm going to say workout, your saddly mistaken) and watched Cougar Town. It sure made me laugh. It's what I needed.

Today's going to be a busy day. We're going snowshoeing. The weather is fabulous outside. But I've got to get some groceries, search for a bra, take the dogs to the vet because the might have dog lice and get myself organized to go out. The food shopping is the most important thing.

Still debating on working out because I am going snowshoeing which will burn a tonne of calories. We'll see how the morning goes.


  1. I think snowshoeing would count as a workout, even though it likely isn't on the list of workouts. You are doing another 14 days it will be a habit. Keep up the great work!

  2. It is a workout. I burned 787 calories snow shoeing yesterday. I was sweating. It was great though. Beautiful day, sun was shinning, nice and warm. Couldn't have asked for a better Saturday.
