Yesterday was a struggle, I felt like I was hungry most of the day. My mood was not at its best. In the evening, I had a breakdown, I took a second snack. I’m so disappointed with myself (not!), I tried to resist but I couldn’t anymore, I took a glass of skim milk. Hopefully this will not throw all my good habits out the window and send me to the fridge and cupboards in the coming months.
Seriously, last night if their had been chocolate or chips or any other unhealthy snack that I’ve enjoyed for the past 55 years, I’m not sure I would not have found a way to reason myself to having some. Nothing wrong with having some, sometime. But I’m not mentally ready yet.
If it had been a need, I would have had to put on my winter clothes, walk ¼ mile to my car, on a snowmobile trail and drive to the store. This is just not convenient. My lesson for the day: DO NOT KEEP the s-h-i-t AT HOME!
I’m asking myself why was I so hungry? I can see 2 possible answers:
1. the lunch was a soup with some grizzol stick and just a bit of cheese. Right after lunch, I felt like I was not satisfied.
2. Because I was reading a lot of blogs, researching about food and I was seeing a lot of pictures that made my heart rate go faster and my tummy ached for it :)
I’m a neophyte about nutrition, mostly because consciously, I wanted to keep my innocence. If I didn’t know better then I had a license to do and eat whatever! Every blogger seems to know what sugar, carbs, starch, etc. are, and how they affect your body.
In the following months, I’ll do more research and post about my findings; nothing too technical, just something that could be of help to someone like me. I know the first thing I’ll be talking about is sugar. Boy I should have been more aware about that poison!
I will also look at different diets, not the one that have you eat only-lettuce-for-2-weeks-to-lose-10-pounds type of diet but as a lifestyle that would be feasible for me. I might just combine a few to get where I want to go.
Yesterday, I went for a walk. I counted my steps. I’m this dedicated! A loop here is about 2,ooo steps. I did 2 loops, so 4,000 steps. Workout wise, walking in the snow with all the weight of the clothing, and fighting the cold and the wind, I’m more than happy with that. I’m still debating a Fitbit purchase…
