***Let me start with a minor freak out and apologize that you are seeing such a WEAK side of me. But this morning is a bad morning in terms of food/eating wise***
I just had 4+ bowls of cereal, some apples… then found myself with a spoon uncontrollably digging into the jar of peanut butter. I just couldn’t stop. I hate when I feel so out of control like that. It is really messing with my head this morning and I don’t know how to handle it. I am so mad at myself. I feel full, overweight, and like this breakfast is just going to sit in my stomach and all turn to fat. (((I am so so sorry to vent like this and let you all see this side of me….I am embarrassed)))
Anyways… on to yesterday’s recap-
:::My Tuesday in a Nutshell:::
Breakfast and Therapy
I started my day super early due to a bad nights sleep (5am), ate a big breakfast of granola/cereal/banana/almond milk/apples… took a 20 min power nap, then headed to my 8am appointment with my Therapist.
We are still in the information gathering stage and she spent yesterday’s session asking follow up questions so she can get to know me and get down to the nitty-gritty details of why I think/act/eat/workout/behave/etc the way I do. I am game for whatever. I trust her and my nutritionist, Heather, completely.
I finished off my afternoon with spending mucho dollars at Earth Fare and using my discount/coupon! Yay! Any excuse to go there really…
After multiple days in a row of physical activiy ranging from weight lifting, lunges/squats, stair master, running, spinning, and biking… my legs FELT it yesterday. They were heavy and slow moving.
But stubborn ol’ me just had to get some exercise… so I went to my noon spinning class. I knew I shouldn’t do it. I got on the bike, and 10 mins into the class, I stopped. Got off. And left. I QUIT. In the middle of the workout.
I have NEVER quit like that before… and you know what? I am so proud of myself. It took so much guts and courage to admit that I was worn down and that my body would be stronger from a day of rest (or light activity).
With that said… I did go ahead and stick to a previous obligation I had made earlier… a 27 mile bike ride with my summer biking group, followed by pizza at Pizza King. I hate Pizza King, but I was proud that I still got a little pizza (sans cheese) ate half (boxed the rest) and came home to have a thick slice of turkey, Yasso frozen yogurt bar, and 3 handful’s of Skinny Pop popcorn! THAT IS A LOT OF FOOD!!
I keep reminding myself that for the triathlon in a few weeks, the marathon in November, and my Half-Ironman that I am determined to schedule for next spring, I will need lots and lots of food and fuel on board……
STRONG AND POWERFUL, Andrea…. STRONG AND POWERFUL.
Have a great day everyone!
