I love accomplishing stuff like that. I actually feel ACCOMPLISHED when I build or paint things! Or varnish them
Nice NSV! Woohoo!
welcome back!!! I kind of like walking in downpours, at least when I plan to walk no matter what, haha!
I'll tell you something, I've never gotten to that point where I just HAVE to have my workout, even in my best losing days... I think I'd love to be there just like you!!! For me, it's honestly just pure, natural laziness. I always feel good when I work out, and accomplished, but I can never seem to remember that feeling the following day. So weird. I'm super proud of you for feeling like you found a better workout regimen! Good job!! Thank you for the motivation. I need it. I guess step one is admitting the problem, right?
For me, high protein, low-cal foods tend to be in the fish family -- most fish is very high protein, though I'm not sure that counts as "meat" for you or not. Cottage cheese and egg whites are also high-protein, low-cal. You could also maybe add protein powders?
Another social event snuck up on me yesterday (I had forgotten about the end of semester picnic) which is why my numbers are super-gross for yesterday. I have a REALLY hard time being obviously dieting around people. It's not exactly shame, but I find that it makes everyone else feel uncomfortable when I mention it. I think I'm most mad at myself for going for a piece of cheesecake. Thanks for the motivation, though - I need it! Glad you're feeling better!!
I love that -- I too am a natural couch potato. I'm going to remember what you said - "I feel much better when I'm active and SEE MYSELF AS AN ACTIVE PERSON" -- that all-caps part is the part that I think I need to embrace!
Aunt flow is a total b*tch
You'll show her! The door will hit her in the butt on the way out!
As I mentioned above -- yet another social event is the cause of my bad Monday numbers. I'm also heading to Chicago on Friday (ergh) but I am going to try to pack as much of my own food as possible to avoid eating terribly. I'm only staying for one day, at least. Today, Weds and Thurs should be easier, so I'm going to try to be as good as possible!!! Feeling REALLY sluggish today, however, and blood-pressure-y in that whenever I get up and move around I get a wave of the dizzies. I'm going to try to do some of my exercises to get the blood flowing before I pop in Turbo today.
