We are a day late ahhhhh!
We wanted to make sure to get a post in today and remind everyone to set up some goals for the month of April. This month I will be continuing my journey on taking up H.I.I.T. – I am really enjoying it, seeing results and loving the revved up metabolism, however, I need to get my eating under control. Being constantly hungry is not a state I like to be in as it’s leaving me in undesirable situations with a still fairly weak will power.
Case in point, my eating today. I set a world record in salad consumption today. I packed a beautiful salad for work – spinach, tomatoes, yellow pepper, green olives and chicken. Unfortunately by ten am I was pretty hungry and only had that salad, an apple and a red pepper left to eat for the day. Luckily a coworker was running out for lunch and I had him pick me up a apple pecan salad from Wendy’s (roll your eyes all you want, there is limited healthy options in Port Kells and this seemed like a better choice than most). Around 2pm I ate the salad I packed and by 4pm I ate my red pepper. I met up with a couple girlfriends for a drink after work because, well, work bloody sucks right now and I needed it. I looked at the menu and settled on a greek chicken burger, no bun, so essentially a greek chicken salad – so yummy, but so not satisfying. A half an hour later I was still hungry and proceeded to do something I am now regretted – I ordered parmesan french fries – uggggg, they were so tasty going down and have done nothing but cause a ruckus since. I bloated so quickly I literally had to undo my jean button while driving on the freeway, the relief was mind boggling.(I call these jeans my ego jeans cause whenever I feel confident about myself and my body I put these jeans on and am immediately reminded that I have goals that still need to be tended to – ego check, ego jeans) I should write a book on all the weird things I do while driving down the freeway, and then not publish it cause I could probably get in some big sh*t for it.
So anyways my Give Up for the month of April is eating like a jerk. Like a jerk who doesn’t care what she eats, cause I do care, and my body needs me to care. I will be continuing to Take Up High Intensity Interval Training through bodyrock.tv and Zuzana Light’s webpages – these people are amazing!
