Yesterday I know I went over my calorie limit. I probably hit 2500 calories...but, I also ran a mile and did weights. I really don't feel bad about it. I just care about that mile right now...I gotta push it up to 3 miles.
Still, today I'm going to try to keep my calories in check. It feels good not to beat myself up about splurging yesterday, but I also feel like it is a waist of time not to eat right if I'm going to the trouble of running a mile. I can't explain what a HUGE change of mindset that is. To not feel soooo guilty about going over my goal calorie range that I go into a free fall of binging. Instead, I don't want to waist my time eating crappy food? What a wonderful way to think of it! Not even waist my time, but I don't want to waist my effort.
On an irritating note, the VW sprung an oil leak today. Rg. I have a feeling it is an easy fix, but I really don't like losing my newly found independence even for a day.
But, my husband did promise me he'd take me to the gym today whenever I wanted. My boss has a meeting at 1, so I will probably go then. I want to Run a mile, duh :) or at least go as long as I can...then walk the rest of the big trail at work. Depending on how long that takes me I may also jump on the elliptical for a bit. Of course I need to do my ab work.
Right now I'm going to go take a walk out side. I got a scarf and some gloves yesterday since it has been pretty chilly outside.
