I have been focusing on too many other things and what is the first thing to go? Yeah. My food plan goes out the window and I eat stuff I really regret later. Donuts in the office are a VERY. BAD. THING. So is lumpia. So is 7-layer bean dip and chips. Ok, I didn't kill it with the whole schwag, but I did "taste" everything. What I have discovered is that by eating a sugary thing like a donut made me crave sugar, which is something I have not been craving at all (have been craving savories, not sweets). Something to remember. I do not have good control over either my portions or my tastebuds. Not yet (after 10 weeks).
So I printed out my mean plans for this week upcoming and am determined to stay focused. Some of the attention-grabbing issues I have had for the past few weeks are resolved/resolving, and I feel a little better about work and life. I need to be able to withstand the times when I am so busy I care less about my goals and care a lot about what sounds good (even if it does not live up to taste expectations). SO. I have until Wed. to undo any damage from the past couple of days, and stay focused on my eating.
Just for grins, I took a 3 hour hike up the Torrey Pines trails (north of La Jolla). My husband works not far from La Jolla and I have been wanting to hike more, so he suggested it. I had a beautiful day, a steep hike up (I don't do hills well due to asthma--I just stop and catch my breath, and then keep going). Downhill was a breeze but boy, even after stretching my hips and thighs really hurt. A good hurt. I plan to go back on Tuesday (Monday is out, have to work in the morning, maybe Monday afternoon a long neighborhood explore would work). Wish me success for the rest of the week, friends!
