The Daily Diary Of A Winning Loser

The effects of my weekend schedule on last night seeped into today, however I resisted the desire to continue the disruption of my sleep pattern. Obviously, my workday wasn’t allowing a break anyway. I had every intention of getting into rotating class at 4:45pm today. As the workday kept going and choosing more and more production deadlines marked “today,” I knew by 4:20pm spinning wasn’t happening. I still left the studio at 4:50pm finally. I used to be tired. It had been a long day. My first inclination was to hurry home and grab a nap before my 7pm weight loss support group conference call. Then, I imagined oversleeping again and immediately nixed the plan.

Instead I whipped out the Starbucks card a colleague lately gifted and going toward the caffeine. I’m probably not using the lingo of a seasoned Starbucks pro, because I’m not, but I ordered a venti dark roast put over with a shot of espresso and 1/4 cup of steamed skim dairy.

The conference call was powerful tonight. Life Coach Gerri Helms and I have a small group that is burning! I’m influenced by the wonderful things the group associates are doing. I covered the decision, then needed to get out to finish some work responsibilities before going to the YMCA for a good workout.

Here’s the deal: I didn’t want to workout tonight. Even after missing the spin class for the second consecutive day–still, I wasn’t sense it tonight. Possibly the caffeine hurry was over and I used to be starting to crash. As much as I wanted to stand down, I just couldn’t rationalize not even trying. I made my way in, reluctantly and again the power of the good workout changed my attitude once. The music was awesome, the movement felt good–the sweat and heart rate confirmed my effort, I was achieving this deal. I walked from the workout feeling amazing away.

Not tired–Incredible, like I had even more energy. I’m sure any second now I’ll collapse, but that feeling right after a good workout is insanely powerful. I thought, why resist this? Apparently I need to do some more food shopping because my selection tonight just didn’t appear very attractive. I settled on what could only certainly be a salad.

  • Pack your lunchtime
  • Overcooked pasta
  • Eye stress
  • 2 tablespoon, Oil – Sesame
  • Event Planning and Management
  • Herschel Supply
  • 2013 NPC USA Championships Class D, 16th
  • Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day, and snack whenever you are hungry

The food tweet is below. Tomorrow morning hours is my 13 week weigh-in. Personally i think great about any of it and I cannot wait to talk about the quantity on Facebook, Twitter and the following tomorrow night. That’s where I have to be careful never to get too wrapped up in the real number. If it isn’t what I want, i would make some adjustments then, perhaps add some good calories from fat as I recommended recently too.

I have a sense it will be fine. Regardless of the true quantity, my job is to apply what I encourage and become alright. I’m in this forever. I’m doing what I’m doing in an effort to develop lasting changes that give me the best chance to go back to my healthiest weight and live a life where taking amazing care is always important. If I make taking this degree of treatment important then I’m assured maintaining a healthy weight will be something I could do and not simply something I really do when everything is peachy. This is actually the life I choose.

I pray I’ll never again sacrifice that choice no matter the future circumstances. Mushroom and swiss omelet-3 egg whites, 1 whole, mushrooms and a slice of swiss. Yellow apple and small pear. Low cal lunchtime. You will see a treat later. Turkey & Provolone on Joseph’s Pita w/peach & strawberries. Avocado (100g), light sour cream (15g), grain chips (1/2 serving–14g).
