I’ve been doing well with the exercise, but it’s like my body is fighting against the lost calories because I find that when I first get home from the gym, I’m feeling good. Then, all of a sudden, I become RAVENOUS. Like I can’t control myself. I end up scarfing down a ton of food. Weird stuff. Like I took a box of Lucky Charms down and ate ALL the marshmellows then threw away the box. It was scary, like I couldn’t stop myself.
What the heck is going on?! >:-(
I have to figure out some way to control my eating because burning all those calories isn’t going to do me a bit of good if I keep eating them back into my body.
Today I’m a little nervous because it’s the first day that I am going to actually be out most of the day. The last two days, I was home all day. Now, it’s time for the orientation of a class I’m starting next week, so I’ll be there for most of the day. I packed a lunch—carrot sticks, salad and some chicken wings.
We’ll see how that goes.
I’m also supposed to be meeting with my boyfriend today, which is hard because like me, he loves to eat and makes it very tempting for me to scarf bad for me food. He exercises, but he’s not a big fan of eating healthy. He feels like, everything in moderation is okay. He also doesn’t recognize or avoid any food groups.
My dad on the other hand avoids pastas, white bread, cookies, candy, all the “good” stuff and he’s lost at least 20 lbs. His sweat clothes that he works out in were hanging off him the last time I saw him.
My mom is skinnier than me, but I think it’s because she is unhappy at her job and stressed taking care of my aging Grandmother. Most days she comes home and eats her lunch for dinner because she had no appetite at work.
So, today I’ll go to orientation and try to work out when I get home.
