For the past 3 weeks, I’ve been rebelling. Like a little child.
I got my eating prescription at the beginning of December. I mentioned last week, I was struggling with it. This weekend was no exception.
This morning, I pulled into the parking lot and noticed I was the only one at the gym. The only one at the gym. I go to Snap Fitness, a gym where they don’t have staff all the time. Members can come & go anytime with an access key that opens the door. I was the only one at the gym at 5:45am. I thought I would be scared but it was actually very nice. I didn’t put my headphones in, I just let the music blast. And for some reason, instead of putting on my normal mellow Alicia Keys Pandora radio station, I put on the Pandora Hip Hop Workout station.
Something was different this morning, compared to the last three weeks. My attitude was different. I ran a mile and then, decided to do some weights. As I was sweating along this morning, I thought about my eating this past month, and how difficult I was making this whole prescriptive eating. I was up and down, eating and restricting. I was not thinking about food but taking advantage of it in a way that wasn’t healthy. And it got me no where.
I was rebelling against my eating plan and all I got was three weeks acting like a spoiled brat.
After I showered & got dressed this morning, I packed food for the day. Something I haven’t done in 3 weeks.
hard boiled eggs, a huge apple, and cheddar cheese.
Veggies & full fat ranch, almonds
Spaghetti w/ whole wheat pasta
Ham slices & cheddar cheese
According to my prescribed eating plan, the above doesn’t meat my goals for grains, fruits or veggies so I’ll fill in the gaps as much as possible for dinner. We are going to a friends house tonight to celebrate the new year and they normally have a lot of really good, fresh snacks. I already know, it’ll be an amazing night.
Okay – so it’s time for me to stop being a baby, stop rebelling and change my attitude.
