I made it through the party without eating one lick of something I shouldn’t! I was so proud of myself 😀 Yesterday I actually took a total rest day with exception to walking Boomer. This moring…118.6! YIPPEE! Slow and steady wins the race. I KNOW I can lose 5 lbs in a week if need but that’s NOT the way I want to drop some poundage. We know what happens when you start to eat or drink again. Preggo belly and cankles. NOT FUN.
I was reading Pauline Nordin’s blog this morning and I really LOVED what she was saying:
I write and talk a lot but I find time to listen or even evesdropping from time to time. During the weekend in Vegas I found myself doing the last mentioned at Lunch. At the table behind me four people were talking about how good they were when they were on a diet. Yes, you see every time they were set on getting lean they were 100% focused and did not cheat at all. Not one bit, it was all going one way forward and no slips.
The discussion kept on about chicken breasts, carbs post training, cardio etc and I was pretty interested in taking a peek at what they were all looking like. So when I had finished my eggs, mustard and decaf coffee I turned around to check them out. Surprise, suprise for me, because none of them looked even the slightest in shape! They were all considered chubby on the border to fat.
How could these people sit and say all this about being super good with diets? Did they lie? No, most likely not, but the emphasize was on being on a diet. Meaning they apparently don’t consider it a lifestyle. They get lean by losing a lot of weight and then gain it all back. The point with this? Don’t know, I never understood the whole concept of doing just that, but I can only talk for myself.
I rather be lean and healthy all year than super cut a few days and chubby the rest. What about you?
I do this after every show but I REALLY need to focus on NOT pigging out too much. Sure the first few days is fun but then it gets old. Then the pants start to get snug and then you’re in your size 6 *gasp*. Yes I know most of the rest of America would kill for their fat size to be a 6 but there is no reason for this to happen to me. Even if I never do another show in my life living and being healthy should be top priority. I never just go out and eat crap and I don’t keep crap at home but the little things I have here and there do add up. Too much PB, extra oats, tons of veggies, they will make me plump up and I know that about myself. I’m still learning and will find out exactly what my body likes.
I’m so glad you all liked and got what I was saying about my ideal post. I am not trying to look like one of those girls. I’m trying to be the best me I know I can be. I’m 34 years old and I am past the oh why can’t I look like her phase.
Hubs is out running an 18 miler run now. I hope he makes it back okay. I kind of like the guy…today 😉
Tonight i’m making this for dinner!!!!!! I’m using 5 oz of ground turkey though. Only because I have turkey burgers already prepared in the fridge.
Sorry for all the randomness. Speaking of…are chia seeds making your butt hair grow longer?
