Today, for the first time, I feel like I'm starting to get back on track. One good thing I did was eating only half my meal at our favorite Chinese place and then finishing the other half as leftovers for dinner. A week ago I would have just eaten the whole thing. You know how it is. You eat about half the meal and you feel satisfied, but you keep taking another bite and another bite because it tastes so good. Then a few bites later, there's not enough left to justify a takeout box and...well..you don't want that great food to go to waste, you are past the point of no return and you finish it off.I can't count how many times I've done that in my life, and obviously that's a big part of my issue.
Another good thing is that I ran on the Wii Fit for 10 minutes as soon as I got home, which I hadn't done for months and months. And boy did it show. A few months ago I could run 20 minutes straight on there without any issue, but I struggled through 10 minutes today. Even with some good music playing, I kept eye on the timer almost the whole time: "Geez, 7m30s left still! I've only been running for 2m30s!" and so on. I don't know that I was ever "in shape" before but I'm definitely "out of shape" now. Ah well, I got through it anyway. Tomorrow will be easier.
Other good news: breakfast was oatmeal, and I walked down 8 flights of stairs at work a couple times. Still I would only grade today a B, because I had two very salty meals plus a good bit of homeade beef jerky, which is basically like eating a block of salt. But it feels good to be on the right path.
Good night y'all!
