You know the saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. Well, I failed to plan meals today. (My plan is usually different than my families meals.. for awhile). Anyway, I figured, I was going to be home studying all day. Full access to good healthy food, and 99% of the time, I don’t eat what is on my plan anyway!
Well take note: Although I don’t eat what I plan, somehow it has helped me stick to the carb/ protein balance. Because yesterday, I did not! I didn’t eat any thing BAD by regular standards… the problem is I don’t know what I ate, or how much. I do remember a couple of bowls of popcorn (no butter.. but needed to snack while I wrote my paper). And then several handfuls of Pirate Bootty (Yum, Yum.) So, I think I really overdid it on the salt today.
Here is what I do remember, and what I am accountable for:
Great run!! 5.4 miles! I averaged very slow, no intervals. But I really enjoyed it. Super Hungry after that, but all I had time for was a protein shake:
Then, I thought I could wait the two hours before another meal, but those protein shakes can’t have any more than 150 calories, so I was getting nauseous!! I needed more food. So I had a banana and oatmeal with berries.
It definitely hit the spot. Then two hours later, I had a chicken wrap with tomatoes, and a cutie:
Then, from there… it gets a little hazy. I know I had popcorn, pirate booty, and maybe one of these:
OK, I definitely had one of those!! Super good!
I must say, I think I often get too complacent. Such as right now, I would be completely content to stay at my current weight. Its really hard to stay motivated to try to lower my body fat, when I feel super comfortable in my jeans. However, I will not give up. I really want to see what I’m capable of (as far as actually seeing my muscles!) So, it is far from over.
