I did great on Friday! I was inspired by one of the blogs that I read, and though I wasn't able to go to the gym, I jogged outside with Hubby. I woke up Saturday morning refreshed! My eyes flew open at 6am and I was ready to work out in the gym. I believe I woke up energized because I ate so well on Thursday and Friday. I made a concerted effort to eat my veggies and portion control. I felt good! Then what happened? I blame it on the second slice of pizza.
I wasn't hungry when my husband and son brought pizza to the house on Saturday night. But I also had not eaten for several hours, so I thought I would eat one slice. It should have stopped there because I became full after one slice. I "rationalized" (did you now that rational, actually means rational lies?) that it was a Saturday and I should just go for the second slice. The second helping was quickly followed by lots of bread sticks. Did I mention that it was past 7pm when we ate?
The second slice of pizza started a domino effect. I woke up Sunday morning not hungry and went to church with no breakfast. We came home in the afternoon extremely hungry and though lunch was a low calorie meal, I ate a lot of it. The large consumption kept me full until about 9pm, when I became hungry again. I ate 2 whole toasted bagels loaded with PB and jelly.
I woke up Monday morning not feeling well. I had no energy to exercise and slept in until 9am. I call it the "Bagel Hangover." If I am going to work out consistently, I need to eat better. I can't work out if I don't have the energy or too hungover from excessive food consumption! I feel like throwing in the towel, until I read other weight loss blogs. I become inspired and I know that there are other people out there who are just like me!
Today is a new day!
Food for Thought: What do you do to combat the late night munchies? Do you eat? Do you ignore the cravings?
