Doing well so far this week. I'm away with Tegan on the road all day tomorrow. But I have proactively packed all our food and should be fine. I've factored the rest day in to my workouts for the week. I've also signed up for my first 10k race. I'm doing things backwards by doing a half-marathon first...maybe I'll do a 5k next...lol.
Struggled last night. T would not go to bed and was screaming and Connor was grumpy and not being very helpful. So I drank 2 ciders and made some peanut butter cookies (ate about 6 small ones). It didnt make me feel good, I just felt drunk, cranky and fat. If I'm going to go off plan I should at least enjoy myself!! But stayed on track today even though it was tough. Tomorrow is my race and I'm excited for that!!
The 10k was great! I couldnt have asked for a better race/day. The weather was perfect. My family came to watch me cross the line. I had no idea how long I would take since this was my first but I came in at 53 minutes and actually enjoyed the whole race. I even passed 4 people in the last 500m (it was a small race only 200 people) because I had enough energy left to really give it so I think I definitely can improve my time.
I'm feeling a tad bit frustrated though because the last two weeks I have worked my butt off. Last week I lost 0.8lbs and this week 0.4. It's frustrating to see so little reward for all that sweat! My only saving grace is I also do measurements so I lost some inches. I guess as I get closer to my goal it is going to get harder and harder. I just wanted to hit 143 so I could say I've lost 50lbs!
Ok so I had an epiphany tonight...lol. I was cranky all day because I was hungry and tired. I was a grump to Tegan and Connor. I was annoyed at my inlaws for inviting us over for dinner tomorrow night because I would have to work that into my calories. I was annoyed at having to go to lunch with a couple I havent seen in a year because of calories.
I am 144lbs, I like the way I look, am more fit than I have ever been in my life and enough is enough. I dont care if I'm 1lb away from losing 50 or not in the 130's. I went shopping today and clothes fit great. Depending on the store I'm between a 4 and 7. I'm not going to spend the rest of the summer hungry and grumpy trying to lose 1 freaking lb.
I am going to switch over to a maintenance meal plan. You know I have never in my entire life tried to maintain my weight. I've always been either not caring and eating whatever or trying to lose. It feels somewhat liberating. Before when I would fall off a diet I would eat like crap and not exercise at all. Since maintaining is all new I might have to work on things a bit to get it right.
I would like to keep my exercising the same and start off by going back up to around 1800 cals and see how that goes. I'm also going to make another appt. with the tailor and if my dress is tight in any areas still she can let it out. I am going to enjoy my body and my summer!
