During (March 2010; 194 pounds)
Yesterday I was really feeling funky. "Why am I still overweight? Why can't I run faster? Why is running so difficult for me? Why do I still have such a huge belly roll? Why can't I just be happy with my accomplishments?"
That sort of day. I hate feeling like that because I'm generally an optimistic person. Guess we all feel a little down from time to time.
Some good news: I tried on a pair of size 16 jeans and I could zip them up without doing yoga poses or lying flat on my back! I could zip those babies up just standing there and not even sucking in my belly. Woohoo! Small victory!
This weekend my eating was not wonderful. Made some great choices but also made some bad ones. We ate out way more than we should have. Yesterday Rachel had a teen get together at the movies and afterwards we all went to a place called McAlister's Deli. I thought I would be good and order a turkey club with orange cranberry sauce. Chuck ordered a beef dip sandwich. Later I found out that the turkey club had 900 calories and his beef dip had 433! Doh! I chose poorly. Oh well. We're staying in this week and I've got some healthy dinners planned.
I took off from exercise on Sunday. Just needed that day off. My calves and hips were sore from the exertion of the 5K on Saturday. Trying to learn to listen to the body. I think it was screaming "shoot me" yesterday but I could be wrong.
And now, on to losing another 5 pounds! :)
