Funny side note, my little brother (ok, he's 25) just got back from a five week trip to Ecuador, and when I told him how much I've lost, he said something like, "I barely ate and did hours of backbreaking manual labour and projectile vomiting on a hillside for five weeks and I didn't lose that much!" Oh, I want to try THAT diet!! The manual labour was building houses for families in need. Very cool little brother!
That being said, I've felt like death warmed over in a faulty toaster oven today. Headache, gas pain (ohh yeah...too much fiber!??!?) and despite only losing 1/2 hr. sleep to get to work early, sooo tired!! I dragged my butt around all day. Good thing that my classes are all but over and the kids are finishing projects, prepping for exams and watching a movie for the novel we studied. It didn't help though that I was at school that 1/2 hr. early and stayed until nearly 5:30 in a meeting. Blarrrrrgggghhh. Nine and a half hours in a high school is akin to torture in some corners of the world. And I don't get paid overtime. Overtime!! Hahahahaha! Ahhh. *wipes tears away* That's a good one.
Getting home late threw a wrench in dinner, so along with my advil, I had a grilled cheese on whole grain bread and tomato soup. Unlike yesterday, I actually felt full after, and I haven't been hungry since! Take that belly! I haven't eaten too much today...just ceral, cucumber and carrots and my nutribar before dinner. I don't so bad not burning calories when I haven't consumed that many.
I decided that since I was feeling crappy today, and I've worked out six days in a row, that I'd take tonight off. I don't LOVE it, but I think the bod needs it. Jason expressed some concern that this could be the beginning of a common pattern with me. Just sort of cop out and decide not to work out more and more until I miss weeks in a row. Yeah, true, that was my M.O. before, but really I don't think so. I am SO much more determined now. Plus, I have you guys to kick my ass if I get lazy, right? RIGHT? Uh huh, I thought so. :)
So here's not to being lazy this week!
Stats for the day:
Exercise: 0 (unless you count flapping my lips or typing as exercise!)
