Yesterday I had every intention of getting out there and walking or walking, but by the time I was done doing stuff around the house, the soreness form day before kicked in and it hurt to sit down and even walk. Needless to say, I did nothing yesterday. What I did notice however, was not doing anything and feeling sore made me want to comfort myself with food! I never realized it before, but I do that! I kept to healthy foods to snack on for the most part, but did end up having an onion bagel with low fat cream cheese...that is a processed food that I want to stay away from, but it did satisfy me. I need to figure out for myself something else I can do instead of eating to give myself comfort. I'm glad I didn't take in to many calories or fat, but still. Today I feel much better so I will make myself get outside and do something! I will also put together a workout plan, because I can not do everything in one day. I need to be good to my body and make sure I balance everything out. I'm in no hurry to drop every pound and take the risk that I injure my body or lose muscle mass and not the fat. I don't want to burn out either. I have always had a problem with when I start something I go for it full force then tire out and slowly end what I was doing. This is not good and since I am doing this lifestyle change, I need to make sure the plan I put together is something I can stay with for the rest of my life!
Last night Justin and Gerianna came for dinner. We had taco night and it was yummy! Before dinner was ready, Justin looked in the pantry and refrigerator and said we had nothing to eat. I said yes we do, and he started naming the items of choice...tuna, bread, beans, veggies, fruit, milk, eggs, etc. I laughed and said those are good things to eat and we have plenty of stuff, you just have to prepare it first. This just shows the difference between quick-to-grab processed foods and then the real and healthy foods that you have to actually prepare. His comment was proof as to why so many people out there don't have a clue how to see healthy foods and know what to do with them. We live in a world where if it's not already fixed for you, then we will starve pretty much. I was surprised, because he has only been on his own for a full month now, but I guess maybe I did keep a lot of easy access foods available for him to just grab when he was hungry, or he was also used to grabbing something that I have already prepared and was easy to just heat-up. Yep, when you buy real food, you have to know what to do with it :)
