I think I hit that point last night when I was watching the end of ‘Live and Let Die” with TPWSNBN. I was looking an Jane Seymour and how incredibly thin she was and how clothes just looked amazing on her. I then looked down at myself and my pudgy tummy, my thighs, and my general sense of flubness, and thought, I bet Jane Seymour, even in her, what 60’s? Doesn’t scavenge the kitchen at random hours for random snacks.
Where is my shut off button?
I thought about the things I am in control of:
- What and how much food I put in my body
- How often I decide to exercise
- My Mentality
So That is what I am focusing on. I am focusing on my food intake. I can’t have treats for a while. Because I never treat them as treats. My goal this evening is to not have any halloween candy. There is no point. I will make myself tea, and hangout while TPWSNBN does the handouts. I will pre-track meals, and weigh and measure.
I can always find an excuse not to work out. This week I’ll only be active 4/7 days. I’d rather that be at 5 days personally, but this week was a hard one. There is my excuse. From now on, I will make at least 30 minutes 5 days a week available to myself. I plan on either taking advantage of the gym at work or waking up early and getting it done.
I’d rather wake up early and get it done because this waking up at 6:40 am every morning is really throwing me for a loop.
My mentality is getting better. The race on Sunday helped a lot. Something I never thought I would be able to do – run 6.2 miles without stopping – came true, and all I had to do is push myself. It truly wasn’t that hard. Wasn’t as hard as say, going to war and defending my country. Wasn’t as hard as going through chemo. Wasn’t as hard as any of the other million important difficult tasks people do on a daily basis. I just had to tell myself to suck it up.
- Track Everything – DONE
- Run 3.1 Miles – This afternoon, either outside or in. Would rather outside, since the temps have dropped this shouldn’t be too hard to convince myself. Plus, more layers means more hiding of the flub.
- 100 ounces of water
I always set up a goal date that I would like to have the weight gone by, well, I realize that is when I usually get in trouble. As it stands right now as of this morning I need to lose 25.6 pounds to be at my goal. I would like this to be gone by my birthday 2013. Start my last year of my 20’s off right and set the tone for my 30’s.
Rest of Week Plan:
- Wednesday (Today): Run 3.1 miles
- Thursday: Circuit training before work (30 minutes)
- Friday: Run 2.5 Miles
- Saturday: 8 Mile Long Run
- Sunday: Rest/Stretching
I can’t believe tomorrow is November. It’s almost Thanksgiving! Then Christmas!
What are your workout plans this week? Do you have any good circuit training workouts? What advice would you give me right now in my current crazy state? What is your favorite Thanksgiving Dish?
