A new normal
Tuesday, March 23, 2010
I'm on my first business trip since I've gotten SERIOUS about this lifestyle change. Everything feels different. For one, when I have a treat, I really recognize it as such, and I don't use the dialogue, "I deserve that", to justify it. I am working HARD on my workouts since I know that I am eating more. I took a few hours to give my work friend a tour of my alma mater and surrounding town today..we got in at least an extra hour of cardio from that, plus the weights I did first thing this morning. I had a fancy dinner tonight, and bread, and dessert. You know how I feel? Uncomfortable. And thats a GREAT feeling. Because I'm not thinking, "wow, I want to do that again!". I have avoided sugar enough that it just doesn't taste right in my mouth and my throat is seriously dry/swollen. I know its crazy, but I'm thrilled. That will keep me from what I used to do...which was to eat like this every few days.. I'm excited to eat exactly what I should be so that this weekend's weigh in will be as good as possible.
OK, I'll be back to my active self in a few more days. Enjoying work and seeing the improvements people have made in their lives as a result of our program. This is the FUN part of our job :)
