Good news is that I DID get up this morning and go to the gym for a great upper body strength work out. I STRUGGLED to get up though. Lizzie woke me up wanting some milk at the lovely time of 4:52 AM. I has my alarm set for 5. You know those 8 minutes would have made the world of difference (so I thought) and I got her milk and I was thinking about how tired I was and how I really could just go back to sleep. I sat in the recliner for a few minutes almost about to doze back off trying to talk myself into going to the gym. I had the conversation in my head about how mad I would be at myself if I didn't go and if I had to do my workout in the evening which I don't like but how the sleep would be really nice. So after a few minutes of my conversation I put my two feet on the ground, brushed my teeth, washed my face, got dressed and headed out the door. YEA!!!! I pushed it hard at the gym too, I wasn't going to waste my huge effort that I had made just to get myself there this morning.
Then comes the bad news is that I ate WAY too much at my works potluck. I thought I could have control and I didn't. I ate 1 1/2 plates of stuff AND I ate apple pie with ice cream. At least it was good and I didn't waste the calories on bad tasting food BUT I have my cheat meal already planned for this coming Saturday so now this means that I will have to cut back considerably on my in take of cheese dip and no bake cookies. BUMMER!!! That is o.k. I don't have to eat my weight in dip/chips and cookies in order to enjoy it. I can have just a little bit and savor every morsel.
I just hate getting off my very well thought out plan. Just throws things off. I am back on track though with a good snack and a healthy dinner planned.
