Home again- at least for a little while!

Monday, February 21, 2011

The last couple of weeks have been crazy with travel, but i am home for a little while, now. I got home Friday evening from a business trip to Florida- I know, sounds great, except that I think I only got outside to enjoy the weather for a total of 30 minutes over 3 days! I was so beat that I blew off my usual walk on saturday morning, not getting out of bed until 8:30 and didn;t get out of my PJs until 4:30 in the afternoon! I spent the day reading and relaxing, and it felt FABULOUS.! On the up side i again showed restraint in the alcohol and dessert department, so that was good, and I did manage to get to the gym twice, if only for 20 minutes each time.

Sunday I went to the gym to run, and today was cardio and strength training. The pump and run is in 2 weeks! I may not make my original goal of >10 reps, but I I know I can bench the necessary weight at least 5 or 6 times. I still can only jog 1 mile at a time, but it's no problem to get in the 3 miles with only a couple of minutes walking. My eating was a bit out of control today- really craving carbs- fortunately there's not much junk food in the house! really I think that more than half the time it;s not a real craving, it is just mindless eating. Hopefully tomorrow will be easier in that department. I need to just slow down and *think* about it before I open my mouth and stuff food into it...If i do that, the craving will frequently pass.
That's what i will concentrate on for the rest of the week- mindful rather than mindless eating.
