2/09/2016 Daily Report
My calories have been running a bit higher than I’d like this week. I had been closer to 1,500 for a couple of weeks at the end of January (when i lost about 3-4 pounds), but now they are creeping up again. I can tell that I’m eating beyond being full, so I need to start paying closer attention when I’m eating, take smaller portions and then, if still hungry, I can go back. But if it’s on my plate, I’ll eat it, even if I’m full. Gonna try to concentrate on that the next few days – eating more mindfully.
We’ve had gale force winds, which I checked, and is 32-38 MPH winds, last night and today. To top it off, it was cloudy and cold, but I only had about 4k steps before Yoga tonight and I knew I’d never get my 10k if I didn’t walk. So I walked in the cold and wind, and I made it to 10k without having to pace around the couch
I have to say that I was MISERABLE during the last 10 minutes of the walk, heading into the wind when the sun went behind the clouds. So freaking cold. If it weren’t for my fitbit, I would NOT have walked today, so, yeah, there is definitely motivation there. I felt like one of those cartoon characters leaning into the wind and trudging like i was going up a steep incline to get it done.
I’m still managing to get 96 ounces of water down, plus about 12 ounces of herbal tea, which I don’t log on there, but I think counts, but that’s all I can choke down when it’s cold, so I’ll just have to be happy with that until the weather gets warmer, I guess.
In the Yoga with Weights class, I didn’t try to push the planks. My back has been touchy for the last 2-3 weeks since we started this plank challenge thing and I just can’t take that risk. I did about 30-45 seconds on my toes then dropped down onto my knees for the rest of it on both planks. I thought about asking if I could do a headstand and build up to 4 minutes on that instead, but I don’t think Eileen would really want to do that, and I don’t want to put her on the spot, so, I’ll just have to do them on my knees. Just not worth throwing my back out.
I was really pleased with how my headstand picture collages came out today. Love the cosmos leggings! See them all here.
Lastly, I’m gonna tag some mutuals in my daily reports and some other personal posts, just cos after talking about it with a few people today, we thought it would help save everyone some time keeping up with what’s going on. If you are tagged and don’t want to be, no problem, just let me know! It’s fine! If you would like to be tagged and aren’t, let me know and I’ll add you. PLEASE TELL ME! IT’S NOT A PROBLEM! And please tag me back – you aren’t bothering me, it really saves me time finding your personal posts so I know what’s going on.
