So I got up today and was NOT in the mood to exercise. I don’t know why. I actually had time to do so, and there was no reason not to. I simply was not in the mood. I think the fact that I have not exercised much in the past couple of weeks contributed to my not wanting to go. Honestly the more I exercise, the more I want to exercise. And the less I exercise, the less I want to exercise. It’s the domino effect that I was talking about yesterday. I also think the fact that I haven’t lost weight in the past 3-4 weeks makes exercise less exciting. It’s more motivating to exercise when I think that I’ll soon be in a smaller size – it’s harder to find the motivation when I’m just maintaining. However, I went to the Y anyway. I just had to pretend to be my own mother and force myself to go. Often, once I’m there and start exercising, I get in the mood. But today I didn’t – I had to force myself through the whole workout. But I did get in a good workout. And I think it was good for my mindset that I went and did it.
Eating front was okay today. I had one of those Steamfresh Meals for Two for lunch which was really good – had a lot of chicken in it and these very soft and tasty noodles (but not too many.) I was eating dinner at a friend’s house tonight. They had taco salad – not the most or the least diet friendly thing. I did have some dessert. Didn’t pass up the chocolate.
