why must monday come once a week?
Monday, August 09, 2010
Well, drill went pretty well. I stayed busier than I am used to and didn't get as much reading done as I generally do. :] Organizing all weekend because they moved us around and now another portion of our unit is in the same building as us. And it is a small building, an old school house for this little town. But I have my own office, which is really good for a specialist, and as long as I keep it I can't complain.
Things that went well this weekend:
-Worked out on Saturday even though I did not want to
-Came home at a decent time Saturday night even though I was having a great time
-Allowed myself to enjoy dinner Saturday night by keeping it under control during the day
-Did some leisure reading
Things that could have gone better:
-Wine.. I wish it didn't taste so good.. But I do have to say I am still so much better at this than I used to be. One day I will hopefully master it.
-Family Day lunch-I went overboard. There was so much food, and desserts...
-Last night- boredom eating. I was sleepy from being in the heat all day, and grumpy. I napped and then when I got up I ate aimlessly. chips and salsa, ice cream, peach... it wasn't all at once but it wasn't because I was actually hungry. Boredom eating is one thing I really need to get past.
-Ratio of protein/carb/fat was not met over Saturday/Sunday
Plan of action for this week:
-Only one bottle of wine will be purchased for the entire week, and I will share it with my lover so that I only really get 2-3 glasses out of the bottle.
-Only eating out one meal, and planning ahead (not Italian this time, while I do LOVE Pasta Factory)
-When I feel the need to eat without being hungry, drink water. Then work on one of the many projects I have laid out for myself!
-Plan meals for weekend out ahead of time when I go grocery shopping to ensure I get enough protein
Other than that I think this week will be typical. I need to not spend a ton of money because the float trip is next weekend. Woot woot. I am also not going to weigh myself this week. It really doesn't help me when it goes a different direction than what I had hoped. And it tends to. My body keeps floating around 128-130 and it pisses me off. So instead I am not going to weigh myself for record until next week or maybe until phase 1 of P90X is over with. I look at myself in the mirror and I see my stomach getting flatter and my arms getting BUFF and I discover new muscles in my legs all of the time. That should be a good enough judge if I am doing the right things, at least for now. I might get some calipers later on...
I hope my HRM arrives today! I would love to be able to know pretty much exactly how many calories I should be taking in. I have been afraid to try to up my calories at all for fear I am not burning enough. But now I'll know.
Here's to a great week and continuous progress. :]
