Note #1: PLEASE enter my giveaway for a set of Jabra SPORT bluetooth headphones. These are really nice, no strings (or wires) attached, and I get to give people something nice, SO HELP ME DO IT
Yesterday I wasn’t very hungry when I woke up so I ate a small breakfast. For lunch I had a sandwich and a banana and felt full. I drank about 60 ounces of liquids throughout the day, including some gatorade.
Around 4 PM I took Stanley for my 30 minute run. An hour later I did my 1200 yard swim. By the time I got to the arena to watch Rachelle’s team play, I was starving. I ate not 1, not 2, but 3 sandwiches from the food counter, drank a powerade and a water, and was still starving. I took time between each sandwich to make sure I wasn’t just thirsty or craving. I drank another 20 ounces of water, and waited an hour before giving in and grabbing some fast food. I was deliberate, eating slowly again and thankfully I finally wasn’t hungry. I wound up only eating a few french fries and drinking about 4 – 6 ounces of soda, with exactly 1 small bite of the burger before I stopped eating. It was probably 3 extra points that I wish I hadn’t eaten but I was doing the right things and listening to my bodies needs. I think I need to increase my electrolyte intake during the earlier parts of the day and while I’m on my run to prevent this.
I’m really proud that knowing how to properly attack this kind of response from my body paid off in that I didn’t wind up devouring a cheeseburger, which as you all know is my weakness. While I’ve been mostly successful at avoiding food weaknesses and staying within points, I’m not happy with how my weight loss has been going. I have begun to notice small changes in my body, and I know this takes time. And I see from my training results I’m getting stronger/faster/better, I just need to stay with it.
Note #3: I’ve added a tracker that will display where I am in terms of fundraising. It’s off by $50 that will be coming via corporate matching, so I’m actually at $175 so far.
