Day 208-209 Oh No He Di'n't, Oh Wait, He Did.... Dang IT!

So the best laid plans and all you know. I kinda decided to go against the plan for Super Bowl Sunday, take the chains completely off, and just do what I have always done for Super Bowl Sunday, to the tune of 6 peices of pizza, a few twice baked mini potatoes, and three, count'em folks, three cupcakes. Wanna know what I learned from all that? I don't eat like that anymore. Not only was it not fulfilling, it made me physically ill. It not only didn't make me want to go back to eating like a pig on crap food, it took me exactly the other way. I have had a brand new appreciation for the way I eat now and the way it makes me feel so much better. It was really, honestly and truly a joy to get back to my calorie counting today. I kid you not. I had this pain in my gut last night, it was just not cool. I felt tired and sluggish when I woke up this morning. The only saving grace was the endorphin high I got from this mornings jog. It was awesome-er than usual today. I also had a great walk at lunch. I got hard headed about the fact that the sun was out today and I was determined to walk outside at the park. Well I did it, and about lost all my extremities to frost bite..... and would do it all again baby! it was great! I got 2 1/4 miles jogging and 2 1/4 miles walking in today. And I have been lower than usual for my calorie count. Out of a negative, comes a positive. A brand new appreciation for all the things I have come to take for granted in this great journey!

  2. I bet it went in as a negative and came out as a positive-good poops are hard to come by! On a serious note, that is some serious food, I would have chucked all over, after thoroughly enjoying it, of course. Hey, back on the horse-great run, good job!!

  3. I can't wait until I feel the same way. While I had a week long binge and didn't feel all that great during or after, it's still a hard habit to break.

    I am inspired by your zest for walking and now jogging.

  5. It's a great learning experience but here's a little tip from me....make sure you don't continue to push it with the food. You can EASILY re-train your body to eat junk food, so be very wary about eating trash in the next few days! I hope you're doing well Shane! Congrats on getting back on track today!
