I am strict with my food... almost to the point of being obsessive. I think this has set me up for on more than one occasion to fail!
I need to relax in some situations... so here is my epiphany ....
I have been dieting hard core, my trainer gave me a diet and I have been pretty good. High in protein, hardly any dairy. I have gained a few pounds... (142) but my belly fat is going away. We are working on building more muscle and he told me that this would happen
the 5K happens, and I am hobbling around like an old woman, I am going to do some internet research on stretching technique's today. I never stretch... boo ... not good!
so back to my story, so I do the 5K and I am sore, well my muscles are retaining water to repair themselves, okay I get this... So me and my dumb head decide to hop on the scale... 145!!!! OMG!!! I went on a 2 day food drunk!! Get myself right and yesterday I counted calories and made sure I ate every 2 hours, high protein and this morning I was right back 142.6!!
dang maybe my trainer is right.... I just get sooooo obsessed with the number on the scale and if I "can" eat this or that... I set myself up ... the other day I went to a women's leadership meeting I am so lucky to be part of this inspirational group of powerful ladies, I want to get MORE involved with this group!!.... anyway... the speaker is talking all about energy, and food and moving... right down my alley right? well... I didn't let myself eat ANYTHING while I was there, so on the way home, I devoured the goodie bag!!! so dumb dumb dumb dumb
so the moral of this is .... #1 listen to my trainer and #2 allow myself to have something during a special gathering, not too much, but enjoy the food and the experience, because feeling deprived is not a good thing and I WILL compensate myself for missing out on the special occasion food!!
on the fitness front... I am back to only twice a week.... and my morning cardio... I have such long days!! .. maybe I will try to fix all my food and set out my clothes once or twice at night and get up at 4 AM, and go straight to the gym, lift and haul ass home... could work? huh?
Tomorrow I am 53... eeeekkk!!! how is that even possible? 53!! I think I am a little freaked out about this also... so this weekend is going to be eating right, working out (I think I will FINALLY try the ab's workout video I bought on Amazon) and Grey's Anatomy marathon... yeah Netflix!!
on a side note, I have been getting a lot of spam comments... boo
see ya later bloggity folks
