Back on the horse today - sort of.
Last weekend I came down with a cold and I let it take over my life. We also went out of town Tue to Friday. I still felt sick up until today. I think the cold became a sinus infection. When I get sick, all bets are off. I don't like that I do that. I want to be the person where exercise is second nature. I love to exercise, I love when I do it often but I let life (colds, etc) derailed me too easily.
I forced myself to get on the treadmill today. Dusted that bad boy off. It was great. I did a hill walk for 30 min and watched an episode of Hung. Luckily the toddler cooperated with a long nap.
That was the good part of my day. On to the bad part.
I binged. Plain and simple. I ate late in the morning. 2 eggs and 2 slices of rye - ok there. I cleaned, lanudry, kids, etc and skipped lunch. Decided I will grab something before going to market at 3pm - bad idea, should have eaten at home and earlier. Bring on a cheese steak. Then I get to the market with toddler in tow. I eyeball a monster sized red velvet cupcake. I contemplate and decide NO. Move on to the ice cream - NO again but I decided I was going for the Fig Newtons. I had a craving a few weeks ago but I skipped it. Not today. I bought a pack and ate at least 10 in the store and probably about 5 more on the way home. I was so full that I didn't eat dinner. It's 9:30 pm and I still feel bloaty and full.
Was I self sabatoging? My weight was up this am from lack of exercise and poor food choices on our trip.
