So it's Monday (just in case you didn't know) and my eating over the weekend was okay. I got into this mindset on Friday that I wasn't going to count calories so I didn't. My eating was actually pretty good but the alcohol consumption wasn't. That has to change! Most importantly, I remembered this weekend how much of a mental "game" weight loss is. The second I thought, "I don't need to count calories. I'm tired of this. I need a break." I was done for the weekend. It was my whole approach to the weekend...I looked at counting calories as depriving myself instead of taking care of myself. I'm done with that mental picture. I've deleted it from my mind. And the way I felt last night was gross and disgusting and I'm tired of feeling that way. So I'm done with "bad" weekends and I'm back to the "nourishing" weekends.
It was actually a very relaxing weekend for me. We didn't have too many errands to run and since there were no movies showing that we wanted to see, we spent a lot of time at home. Which can be boring but after being gone for a week, I enjoyed it. I also cleaned my oven which was a big chore that I've put off for weeks now. I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup for lunches this week as well as the Hungry Girl's Oven Baked Omelette. I'm having the omelette for breakfasts this week...it's good and a nice change from oatmeal.
I am thoroughly looking forward to running outside today at lunch! It's going to be nearly 70 degrees here today (and most of the week) so I'm ditching the gym while it's nice. I caught myself smiling while walking to work this morning thinking about being outside during lunch...I was getting so tired of the gym, this will be a good change for me!
I'm ready to make this week fantastic!
