I actually weighed myself yesterday but didn’t get a chance to update. Arrrggh! I’ve been eating far too much. I don’t know what it is but I’m in love with food at the moment. Even when I’m not eating, I’m ogling fattening foods at the supermarket or on cafe menus.
One of my problems is that I start havng treats but then I do it so often it becomes a habit so then I have that and more treats on top. I started having an ocassional mini muffin at the coffee shop near work and now i have a mini muffin every day. I’ve got to cut all that out.
The other thing I’m cutting out is BAD food. I know some people say there is no bad food – just everyday food and treat food, but seriously some food is just plain bad – not because of the calories but there is no reason for eating it other than it’s there. The other night, my sister and I went out for coffee and the cafe had the most fab looking cupcakes. How could we resist? But when I started eating mine, it was stale and not at all enjoyable. Still I ate the whole damn thing. What I *should* have done was send it back. Why the hell should I pay for (and eat) something that is substandard? That’s what I’m going to do next time.
Yesterday I did a 14 km run. Well I ran a lot of it, probably walked about a third. Every single step was an effort and I had to push myself but I’m glad I did it. I was very sore last night but instead of staying home and resting, I went out to see some bands.
