For todays bad.... not a heck of alot! I did NOT get up to workout today. I was warm and comfy in my bed and just couldnt get up. I was going to run a few or 5 miles when I got off work but its 8pm and Im starving and have decided to run 13 miles in the am so Im taking the day off. And I dont feel bad about it :)
The good... tons!
- I stayed within my points today!
- Im proud of me. I decided to go to the daily grind at work today and get a soy latte... havent had one in a while. 3 points and Im ok with that. On the way there I had talked myself into also getting a scone. I told myself that I "deserved" it but I also had the good person on my shoulder saying that I have been good and dont really need it. So I told myself I would look and if I saw something that was super yummy looking - I really wanted a maple or cinnomon super dry scone. So I got there and got my soy latte and they had a cinnomon apple, white chocolate and regular chocolate. None really spoke to me so I said no thank you and moved on to the cafeteria and got a banana instead :) yaaa me!
The plan part -
Tomorrow I am heading to New Jersey to see my hubbys family for our late xmas. Typically I eat like a pig while we are there. My SIL keeps ALOT of snacks and I try them all. I get junk food for the ride to Jersey. I drink a few sodas or a few cocktails. Either way Im NOT good. I have a plan in place this time around. Im not going down that road tomorrow. I know its only a few meals but I know me... I turn that into a binge month... hello decembers 10 lb weight gain!
So tomorrow am I am hitting the gym and getting my first 1/2 marathon distance run since the actual half in October. Afterwards we will be heading out. I plan to pack some healthy snacks - fruit, veggies and dip, almonds. I plan to pack some of the veggie soup I made to take with us. Maybe a shake or two ... nice to have the single package shakes for that reason! I plan to make smarter choices when possible - for example they will make a big breakfast saturday... I will make some egg whites and toast instead. I am saying no to alcohol too... although I really want to make some sangria. I will do the water thing and instead enjoy a dessert instead.
I wont work out saturday - but will need the break after a 13 mile run tomorrow.
I have a plan!
Im excited to get a sneak peak at the scale at the gym tomorrow.
