I ATE A CHEESESTEAK
Friday, November 14, 2014
and it was delicious. AND I still made out with a 500 calorie deficit for the day. That, ladies and gentlemen is the name of the game. So it's Friday and I'm thinking about my first weekend watching my food intake and I suddenly start craving "the bad foods." Well if you think that way you'll never have a healthy relationship with food. Food is neither good nor bad. It is rather full of the good stuff or full of a lot of nothing. So I wanted a cheesesteak for dinner and didn't feel like cooking. And I did, and I don't feel guilty. I guess this is part of the journey, my 5 year weight loss journey so far. The lesson of just chilling out and finding that medium ground. I don't want to obsessive over every single calorie (been there), I don't want to over workout (been there) or end up starving myself only to result in a three month binge and ten pounds heavier (been there.) I'm three days strong and already I'm experiencing higher levels of enthusiasm, good cheer and a positive outlook on life. So weird how just a week ago I was manically depressed and looking forward to nothing life could offer. It makes that much of a difference when you take the effort to take care of yourself. Now I kind of remember how good it felt when weight actually started dropping off and I was hitting goals I never thought achievable before.
My hubby works at Adidas and so I've been stocking up on some great workout gear and just got two pairs of sneakers ($48) that I'm going to break in over this weekend. It might be chilly on our Boardwalk but I have a coat an Eskimo would be envious of and a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. Having lunch with family tomorrow (and more shopping) and going to a show in Philly Sunday night. Keeping busy! (Oh and did I mention our house closing is next Friday!!!)
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
