I wandered around my house most of yesterday evening, picking up pieces of Halloween candy, putting them back down. Looking at the carbs in my cereal. Putting it back. I wasn't hungry. I had a super filling dinner of homemade turkey stroganoff with zucchini noodles. But, my mind wouldn't let it go.
After the boys were asleep and Hubs was home I decided to hit my home gym. I haven't run in a while because of a nagging hip issue. But, with my mind all jumbled and the giant bag o' Halloween candy in the house, I NEEDED to do something. I ran a mile on the treadmill. Funny thing, my treadmill is stuck on an incline right now. I'm guessing it's about a three or four, but not sure. Anyway, it means I am running uphill so I struggled. It was a brutal run and a brutal mile, but I stuck it out. then I kept walking until I hit thirty minutes of activity. After that it was weights. I know my body is adjusting to lower carbs, I can tell from the way it felt to workout. Good news, the weights felt GOOD. I was afraid I would feel shaky.
When I was done with my workout it was back up to my kitchen and Temptation Island. Again, I pondered the candy but there really wasn't anything calling my name. I brushed my teeth, read a little bit, and went to bed. Well done, me.
I've decided to make my weigh-in days Monday. I have a tendency to use the weekends as an excuse to slack off and I don't want to do that. I weighed in on Monday and was already down a couple of pounds. This morning as I passed the scale in my bedroom I hopped on. And I am down another 1.5 pounds.
Do I think my weight will continue to drop as quickly as it has once my body figures shit out? Nope. But I am going to enjoy it while it lasts!
