I have had company at my house for the better part of 3 weeks. My MIL turned 75 last month and many family members came and went...the last one was dropped at the airport this morning. *whew*
I did fairly well over the first two weeks...ate cake, steak, etc...but kept working out and tried to plan only one bad meal a day. Stayed mostly within calorie range. Got my veggies and water in. The last 3 days have been kind of busy...squeezing the last bit of visiting and sightseeing into what was left of vacation. And so...as is my usual...I was tired and didn't want to cook.
No pizza, but prepared foods and restaurants...and way, way more calories than normal. I also didn't feel much like working out...so, I didn't do much.
When we got back from the airport, after a really late night and a really early wake up call plus much too much IHOP for breakfast, I was barely able to keep my eyes open. All I wanted was a nap. And I did lie down...and then I thought:
"I could probably get three workouts in today, if I got up and walked before it gets too hot..."
As I got up, I thought I heard a tiny *click* in my brain. Is it finally "habit"? I know that over the past 3 days I have felt steadily worse as I ate more junk and fewer veggies and got less exercise. And as I got up I KNEW I would feel better if I did the exercise. And I KNOW I don't want more junk to eat tonight...I WANT veggies.
Holy crow. I hope I can hold onto this...this...whatever it is. It's kind of awesome.
