Today I procrastinated cleaning by exercising. I'm still in awe that these are the choices I am making. When I went to help in E's kindergarten class I had to park a fair distance away from the school. I didn't even go through the close parking lot twice. I just parked and walked to the school. And I felt good about it!
After lunch today I became hungry and wanted every piece of junk food I laid my eyes on. So I made a deal with myself. If after eating a hard boiled egg and a carrot and drinking 2 cups of water I was still hungry I could have some Pringles. Well after eating my healthy choices and drinking my water I was still hungry. So I ate the Pringles. But I enjoyed my Pringles. I ate them one by one. I didn't inhale them.
Tonight for dinner E wanted to go to McDonald's. I had McDonald's Southwest grilled chicken salad for lunch so didn't want a salad for dinner. I had a classic grilled chicken sandwich with the mayo. I ate the chicken and barely ate any the bun. I also ordered a side salad instead of fries. E helped me with my salad. I did have a diet coke with dinner. Sadly, I didn't enjoy the diet coke. It just didn't taste good. But I had already had 12 cups of water today. And will probably have more water before going to bed tonight. I am trying to occasionally have a diet coke. In the past I have gone cold turkey when giving up my diet pop. Then I would months later have one and I was back to full blown addiction. It's my hope that by having one or two every couple of weeks that I don't go back to my old habits.
My workout today was great. I even ran for 1 minute on the tm. I am looking forward to getting started on c25k. And that may happen sooner rather than later. I bought some belt lubricant for the tm. I'm hoping it helps to keep the belt from skipping and then overheating. I'll try it out tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going to do w1d2 of c25k. I'm hoping the tm doesn't overheat! Then when I am done with the tm I will hop on the bike for 30 minutes.
