How are you doing?
I'm finding that I've been more accountable to myself than I have been in a long, LONG time! Still not 100% perfect, but much improved. Attended a wedding party over the weekend (SO . MUCH . FUN!) and indulged quite freely there, but aside from that things have been great.
Once I take even a few days of forcing myself to eat less (i.e. reasonable) my body seems to adjust pretty quickly and that constant need to stuff myself seems to disappear. For most of this week I've managed to be much more in tune with my hunger levels. Often questioning myself in the evening on if I'm hungry and more often than not the answer is not really.
And it shows ... this week I lost 3.2 lbs!! I won't expect that kind of loss every week as I know it's just my body catching up and appreciating eating at a more reasonable level. But I'm happy with it.
I managed to get in a few strength workouts, however I did not manage to get out for my timed 10K. Just a lot of things on the go, and we're in the middle of a bit of a heat wave. I'm not willing to run after work in that kind of heat. Plus I've had a few late nights, coupled with a threatening sore throat, so I've not been willing to crawl out of bed early for a run either. I'd rather postpone this run and get/stay healthy by getting adequate sleep. I will do my timed 10K soon and just do the follow up run in October. It's all good!
My buddy Syl is hosting a GIVEAWAY over on her blog. Go check it out. I'm actually not posting this just for the extra giveaway credit, but more because I think she's awesome and everyone should read her blog,
