The best laid plans...
Friday, November 26, 2010
I really planned to control myself during Thanksgiving. Really, I did.
But, I didn't. I held my portions down much lower than years past, ignoring things like dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, had only one tablespoon or so of gravy and the like. I ate a lot of vegetables, the green and orange kind. Still, I ate way beyond what was intended.
Thankfully, I had prepared for this and had upped my exercise regimen in the days prior, so I had a bit of elbow room.
This morning, though, I got up and just wanted to eat, eat, eat. Sluggishly, I forced myself to do a very demanding strength exercise routine, then went out for some quick walking for several miles.
I know that a lot of people say that losing weight is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise. While this might be true physiologically, the opposite holds true with me.
If I exercise, I just naturally fall into wanting to be fit in every way.
Just trying my best to get back on track. Yesterday is behind me. Today is a whole new world.
