This week has been an excellent food week though I have to admit that at night I have been feeling really howngry (pronounced just that way)! My food issues have been out in full force this week. I have had to literally avoid Walgreens for fear that I will purchase Godiva Chocolate Caramel Gems and I have had to control my urge to eat out this week. I did have Subway, and I was good (320 cal sandwich), but I convinced myself to go there after I had decided that I was going to McD's (after last weeks debacle, I knew I couldn't face myself if I did). I think it was all the potentially dangerous food situations that I surrounded myself with this weekend and did fairly well that "devil me" was trying to pull a fast one.
YES! There is a devil me. You know...just like in the sitcoms. Angel Me hangs out in my brain and utilizes the power of my eyes, but for some reason only likes to really get involved when I am looking in the mirror or my pants are cutting off my circulation.
Exercise has been ROTTEN this week. I have been short on time and patience for it. I should have ran, it has become my standby, but I was trying to mix it up. I purchased a "Dancing off the inches" Country Line Dance DVD. I thought that would be fun and fairly simple, right? Turns out no. Very easy to learn the steps, not so easy to match the speed and keep up. Felt very frustrated and inadequate and that combo is never good while exercising. I also purchased a Leslie Sansone video, but I couldn't bring myself to open it. I am sure she is a perfectly lovely lady, but my sarcastic side (the one that really doesn't want to exercise) could only say terrible things about her picture. (Like I have room to talk). I am doing my first shot at the 5K outside this weekend. Saturday morning, joined by my nephew...we will be doing 13 laps at the high school track, which is actually a little over 3.1 miles, but I am sure that we will pull through.
Anyone else having food struggles this week? What are you doing to combat them?
