Well, stupid rain yesterday didn't let me go for a run at lunch and doesn't look like it's going to let me today either. My eating is so much better when I'm exercising and working out. I've had this attack of the cookie/carb monster the last couple of days and I just ate about 10 Girl Scout cookies instead of fruit for my morning snack. I have not wanted to count my calories at all yesterday or today which isn't really like me...but I just made myself write down what I've eaten so far. Eating wise, I just feel a bit off track like I've already acquired a "vacation" mentality even though I'm not leaving for two more days. It's so weird how sometimes it's harder than other times to make myself eat right and exercise...weight loss is such a mental thing!! Part of it is the fact I've given myself 2000 calories a day. For whatever reason those extra 200 calories make me think I can eat so much more food. For now, I'm going back down to 1800 calories/day. Mentally, that's where I feel like I should be.
I went to the dentist yesterday and it was okay. I haven't been in about 3 years (gross, I know but I didn't have dental insurance until January) so the hygienist cleaned my teeth and I have to go back in a few weeks so she can clean them again. But she did say that for not having been to the dentist in a few years, my teeth don't look too bad. They did a bunch of x-rays and I have a cavity up above a filling so they'll have to take out the old filling and try to refill the tooth...when they do that, my tooth will be most filling so they may have to crown the tooth. My biggest pet peeve about the dentist is when the hygienist is cleaning your teeth with the water sprayer thing and you get water all over your face...I hate that!!
Got in to work at 7 again this morning and already have one part of one project done and will meet to discuss it later (just to verify that I'm on the right track). I'm leaving early today to get a pedicure (reward for putting in 20 miles of running last week) and a bikini wax (gotta get ready for the hot tub at the ski resort).
Alright so time for some April goals:
1) Follow budget! Buying a lot of new clothes has got to stop! Remember grad school and paying off debt.
2) Eat, on average, 1800 calories a day
3) Workout/run 22 times
